    M3 cluster warm up lights

    Does ANYBODY know if itís possible to get the warm up lights operational when this cluster is swapped into our cars?

    Iíve searched around since having mine swapped in along with asking a few people and nobody seems to know or has figured it out.

    Is there an extra sensor or wiring needed, how do those lights work?

    The warm up lights can be programmed, a few people on here have done it:



    The item that'd really make me swap over to an M3 cluster is the getting the shift lights to work, and more than just "light up at specific RPM" but also accounting for rate of acceleration.

    Who on here has done it? I’ve asked around with the people I know who has a the cluster and nobody has the warm up lights properly working.

    This is simply a coding thing? No hardware stuff needed?

    Schmiedmann used to have a gauge/cluster for non-M with the warm up lights: https://youtu.be/pAHRB9FWtOM

    I believe it was plug n play. Maybe they still have them in stock.

    That's pretty cool! Now, about that obnoxious logo...

    Found some more pics of it, guess it's not that plug n play after all.

    That specific one was done by Terra, but he's off in medical school or residency by this point so I don't think he has time to code them anymore. I know at least one other person on here has done it, but I can't remember their username.

    I tried messaging terra ages ago about this and never got a response.

    That ZHP style cluster with the warm up lights is interesting but I like the OEM cluster a little better

    Might check E46Fanatics, I was looking into this last year and I thought there was someone on there who was still offering that service
