EF trip computer

Been looking through the search engine, but I can't find any answers. SO.
Does anybody know if a trip computer/Ghia dash will plug straight into an EF GLi dash?

Re: EF trip computer

If its like the EA/D trip computer, you will need the plug and some loom, i dare say it would be the same for the rest of the dash aswell.

Re: EF trip computer

Trip computer requires the addition of 2 wires from the cluster wiring connectors aswell as the wires that are already behind the trip computer location.

Re: EF trip computer

OK, what are the differences in the looms between the models? Are there as many looms as in the earlier models?
Is it just the dash looms that differ?

Re: EF trip computer

i'm fairly sure you're able to mention fordmods.com on here now :)
things have calmed down between the 2 sites as seen from the recent heathcote meet where members from fordmods attended :)

but yes, fordmods have a tutorial on installing an trip computer to an EF.

Re: EF trip computer

I have currently got my dash appart (94 EF Fairmont) because my tripmeter vdo stopped working. After being advised by ford and all wreckers in WA that I had to replace it with one from the same model I thought what the heck I will try using parts from another model because mine are as rare as hens teeth. I got a dash from a 96 standard ute and went to work. much to my surprise the ute dash has the oil pressure and alt guages hiddden behind a cover but the dash board circuit was not setup for these guages. This and the missing needles is the only difference between dashes. I just pulled the dashes totally apart and used the tripmeter vdo (and white surround) from the standard dash and placed it onto mine and to all the people who advised me it would not work, IT DID!
So you should be right.
