I bought a 2013 chevy sonic gauge cluster to try and use for future projects. I can't seem to find a wiring diagram for it. Does anybody have access to something that could label the 9 wires feeding into it? Thank you.

As I understand it, that gauge cluster has stepper motors to move the needles, and requires a computer interface to make them work. I understand it can be done with a Raspberry Pi, but have no idea how it's done.

I wondered about this. The sonic is canbus also. I haven't gotten educated much about that. I went to ebay to buy a wiring manual and found $300 ones. I paid $18 for the cluster so if I can't make it work, it's not a large loss. Smile

I would suggest calling Classic instruments. If any one has figured it out it will be them.



I have a couple ideas about figuring out which wire is which. But my question are they switching the ground or the power?

I researched the Raspberry Pi a little bit. They sell modules to drive stepper motors as well as many other things. I'm intrigued somewhat. I think I'll call Classic. They can surely tell me if this is a really bad idea. Smile Thank you.
