    Doing the supervision cluster swap on my 2013 optima EX and I’m trying to source the plastic bezel trim piece that goes over the actual cluster in my vehicle. If anyone has one that they are parting out please reach out to me $$

    Hi, I just bought a 2019 Optima SX. In a video review from Alex on Autos (he reviewed a 2017 SXL), he showed the screen in the instrument cluster, and there was a tab to display the current song info permanently. My car is missing this tab on the screen, so I only see the song info briefly when...

    Does ANYONE out there have a part number or reference number or anything for the gauge cluster bezel for doing the SX supervision cluster swap in an EX? I've looked high and low for the trim piece and cant even find a picture of it barely. Thanks in advance.

    As noted in title, my 2014 Optrima EX on occassion requires that I press the start buton twice in order for the vehicle to start. I also noticed that the instrument cluster lights flicker when the car starts on the second key press. The car has the original factory battery and it has OEM remote...

    Just bought a 2012 cluster from an sx to put in my lx, with close mileage, waiting to put it in till i hit the mileage listed, but my question is, is what differences do i get with an sx cluster? I know the obvious ones like visually but what sounds are different? Like turn signals, start up...

    This might be an odd question, but has anyone tried changing the color of the light emitted on the gauge cluster? I was hoping on changing it to red

    Can someone tell me the purpose of this small light next to the dome lights? I looked in my owners manual but there is no mention of it.

    I don't like the fact my exterior temp display is embedded in the sub displays on my '11. Wondering if I could just drop a 12/13 cluster in my 11 where the temp display is separate?
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I had a 2013 Optima ex and it had a red bulb for the odometer reading, outside tem. and all of the other center information, ( trip a, trip b, MPG, distance to empty and so on). My 2015 Optima EX uses a white bulb to show :rolleyes: all the center information. I like the red much better than...

    anyone noticed how, as far as i know, that our LCD clusters are missing features? I noticed before on press shots and on different models in different countries that these features do exist. The features i am speaking of is being able to view multimedia from the cluster and turn by turn...

    Hey, my friend drove up from Florida to visit his mom/dad, he has a white sx. Well, he stopped by my house for a couple hours, so he had his white sx and I had my Demon Black LX with tech/premium, infiniti ect... Ok, first off, he loved my car to death, but that is besides the point. We go...

    Gap between cluster and dash *UPDATE* Hi everyone, I have a bit of an issue with the interior of my optima. I have noticed that the dash is lifted up from where the cluster is to the left side garnish. I tried to pop it back in but no go. I also took it to the dealer but denied to do it for...

    Not sure what is available on the EX or LX trims - - might be something similar, just displayed differently. Recently decided to switch from Trip A displayed all the time (since I was tracking gas mileage from the day I bought the car) to Average MPG and am finding is a little...

    So I've been doing a lot of research on the possibility of this. I've found out that the information on the supervision cluster is the same that reads out on the dot matrix LCD in the ex/lx. So I don't believe the computer would have to be recoded. The mileage is also kept on the ecu so it...
