There are three connection sockets that will be connecting the wiring to the first socket. Has 26 pins? These are numbered from 1 to 13 and from 14 to 26. The second blue socket also has 26 pins numbered from 1 to 13 and 14 to 26. Third, black socket has 12 pins numbered from 1 to 6 and 7 to 12. For the wiring we’ll use Arduino jumper cables, which can plug directly to the pins on the back of the cluster to begin with, prepare 5 wires for the ground connections. For this we will need 4 wires with female ends and one wire with a male end. At the other end of the wires cut off the connections with wire cutters and strip the ends next join the five wires by twisting the ends together, cut a small piece of heat, shrink, tube and place it over the ends of the wires connect, the wires and Solder, the ends to the negative terminal on the DC jack then slide the heat shrink over the solder joint and apply heat to shrink the tube. The next step is to prepare the wires for the 12 volt positive power. For this, we will need six jumper wires with female ends. At the other end of the wires cut off the connections with wire cutters strip, the ends of the wires and twist together, cut a piece of heat, shrink, tube and place it over the ends of the wires. Then solder, the wires to the positive terminal on the DC Jack place, the heat shrink over the solder joint and apply heat.
At this stage, we will have all the power connections ready on the DC Jack, with the five wires soldered to the negative terminal for the ground connections and six wires soldered on the positive terminal for the 12 volt power connections. The next step is to start connecting the ground and power wires to the cluster. By following these diagrams, we can make the following: pin connections. The first ground connection goes into the first socket and connects to pin 19. The next ground connection to pin 24 then connect three 12 volt power wires to pins 2, 22 and 23. We can use tweezers to help align the wires while connecting to the pins on the second blue, socket connect one ground wire to pin 3, then the 12 volt power wires to pin 4 pin 5 and pin 16 on the third black socket connect one ground wire To pin three then to complete the wiring connect the last ground wire to the ground terminal on the Arduino. Next prepare five malefemale jumper wires for the connections between the cluster and the Arduino on the first socket connect one wire to pin twenty on the cluster, then to pin two on the Arduino board on the same socket connect one more wire to pin 21, then to Pin four on the Arduino board on the blue middle socket, connect one wire to pin 18 and then to pin six on the Arduino board on the black socket connect one wire to pin one and then to pin five on the board.
Then connect one wire to pin four and then to pin three on the Arduino board to complete the wiring. The next part is to setup the software for the cluster to work. We will need to download and install the sim hub software and then use a custom sketch uploaded to the board, with the sim HAP software downloaded and installed open the sketch in the Arduino software, which is included with sim hub next plug in the USB cable. From a PC into the Arduino board from the tools, menu select, the correct Arduino board and the communication port next click on verify and then click on upload with the upload successful plugging the 12 volt power cable into the DC jack to power up the cluster open. The sim hub software click on Arduino and then click on my hardware, scroll down to the e36 cluster device and next to the custom protocol. Click on edit add the custom protocol for the new device and click on. Ok, then click on apply now. The next step is to configure the tachometer click on the gauges. Tab then, set the maximum gauge rpm to 7 set the number of cylinders to 6, as this cluster is from a 6 cylinder vehicle, then to test the function of the maximum rpm click on the test. Button also tick the box to use full range depending on the vehicle driven in game. It will Rev 7000 rpm. With this selected, it will spread the rpm evenly on the gauge for all cars.
The BMW e36 dash cluster is now set up with working gauges and odometer and is ready to use with your favorite sim games.
