WT Denali Gauge Cluster Question

Recommended Posts

So I have a 2018 Silverado Custom (No steering wheel controls), Base Cluster.

 

I did the 2018 Denali Cluster upgrade, since I have no steering wheel controls I wont be able to navigate any of the cluster menus right?

 

Therefore I lost function to checking Fuel Consumption, Trip, Etc etc?

 

I pretty much figured I would since my cluster has the little knob on it that lets me move across the few other screens.

 

Maybe theres another way of getting access to these menus without steering wheel controls?

 

Thank you guys!

You will need more than the wheel. I think there is a wire you have to connect from the clockspring to the cluster. I’m not exactly sure. I upgraded my 15 WT wheel to the heated wheel and then also upgraded my cluster, but I was unable to navigate as well. The new wheel is a good place to start, but you will need more than the wheel most likely.

I have done this swap already ...

 

you only need to add one wire from the clock spring to the cluster for the LIN bus pin #20 in the cluster to pin #2 on the clock spring connector 

 

That single wire will give you wheel illumination and cluster navigation controls

@Todd1982 Thanks man! Hopefully its that simple! What year is your truck? 

 

Apart from the steering wheel, was there anything else you needed to buy? Clock spring etc?

 

@pgamboa Can you chime in whenever you have a chance and confirm this? 

 

My truck is a 2018 Custom. So Base cluster, steering wheel, all manual seats etc.

I just want to confirm. I did this over the weekend.

 

My truck is a 2018. I got a steering wheel and clock spring from Frankie off of a 2015, installed them, ran the one wire from #2 on the clock spring to #20 on the cluster and everything works flawlessly. 

 

Illumination plus steering wheel controls for the cluster. Thank you and @pgamboa for making the wire for me and helping me through the install.

Im hoping to get with MVI and go from I0B to I05 or 6. I would really like to upgrade to the 8" Screen with Navigation & Carplay (I currently have the 7" with Carplay)

 

Im not sure on the radio controls, I skimmed through the WT to DIC & 8" Screen thread but didnt see much info for the I0B truck.
