Calibration

Pushbutton

These buttons are used to calibrate your speedometer, set the cylinder count and the fuel level gauge. Once properly configured these same buttons are used to access the wealth of information located in the Digital Message Centers.

Options

Which extras items that are not included with this kit does Dakota Digital recommend that you consider?

Because Dakota Digital includes the required sensors for the Oil Pressure, Water Temperature and Speedometer with all its VHX and VFD instrument systems, in many cases no additional parts will be required. However, you may wish to consider the following optional items.

GSS-2000 - Universal Gear Position Sensor 

All Instrument packages contain a gear shift indicator display allowing the transmission gear position (Park, Reverse, etc.) to be shown within the message center. The GSS-2000 accommodates automatic transmissions with 2- 4 forward gears and enjoys a simple and straightforward installation.

DIM-1 - Light Dimming Knob

SEN-06-1 - Fuel Level Sensor

Expansion

Expansions

Dakota Digital is proud to introduce the BIM Expansion modules for Dakota Digital VFD, VHX and HDX instrument systems. The introduction of the Dakota Digital BIM modules allow you to add up to an additional 16 gauges, that's right we said SIXTEEN specialty gauges to your vehicle without the need to cut extra holes in the dash or installing pillar and pod mounts to your columns or under the dash. 

Please note that the BIM modules are only compatible with current VFD, VHX and HDX control boxes which have a black plastic housing. Older control boxes with metal housings are not compatible with the BIM modules.
