I decided to buy a BMW E36 cluster so that i could wire it into an Arduino UNO and have it operated by the SimHub software (decided to do it after seeing someone's tutorial ) so i wired everything up correctly to the Arduino and to a DC jack to supply power to the cluster. Once i did that, i used the file that was linked in the description of the video for the Arduino. Everything went well until it was time to test it.
I pressed the 'Test RPM' button, but nothing happened. I tried the 'Test MPH' button, but still nothing happened, although i did see a reaction from the Arduino ( a light blinked when i pressed the test buttons ). I went and tried it on a game (Dirt 2), but the only reaction i could get out of the cluster was the MPH needle moving up to 20 at random points in the game.
The MPG needle 'bounces' when the cluster gets plugged into the wall, but i can't get any of the needles to move properly.
Could someone help me? As i think it may be the code that was linked in the video, but i don't understand any of it.
If it helps, the instrument cluster im using is a BMW E36 6211 8379818.
Thanks in advance!
