That symbol is for the catalytic converter over-temperature warning, only JDM models have the sensor in the cat so I would just remove the bulb.

The IC numbers would be helpful along with the number of pins on the chip, thank you.

Ok, so got it hooked up, and surprise surprise, the Japanese cluster has a different symbol!

It isn't the hazard indicator at all, it's a strange symbol that looks like a catalytic converter maybe? 

 

Have you ever seen a symbol like this in a Suzuki before? 

 

My loom doesn't have anything going to A15 at all, so I can't find original wire colour. I'm assuming this must be a JDM-only thing.

 

I'm also talking to you in a different forum about the ICs in the various Suzuki tachometers, I have pictures I can upload if you'd like? 

Unfortunately, the IC codes are incredibly difficult to capture on camera. I'm

When you put it back together post up the wire colours that go to the connector, the wiring diagram isn't that helpful as it doesn't show the pin designations, we might be able to work it out from there.

If that's what it is, then why didn't the Australian DM cluster have it?

Any ideas on how to test if that's what it is?

Personally, I was thinking it is something to make the light flash instead of just staying on constantly. I applied 9v in various configurations and I couldn't observe anything..

Did you want pictures of anything before I put the car back together?

Its most likely to be a voltage regulator then.

The three connections from left to right:
Connector 1: A15, and also, through a resistor, to the lowest connector on the thermostat gauge. Which I assume is positive voltage.
Connector 2: Connecting to what I'm assuming is ground
Connection 3: The hazard symbol, and through a diode, to B1

No traceable connection to the VSS

Is this connected to the VSS input? I know that the JDM motorbikes have a light that comes on at 50 or 55MPH which is their national speed limit, maybe its something similar.

Hey, I'm Disco, from Australia. Currently doing a baleno g16 swap into a Suzuki Sierra (Samurai). To ensure all the original cluster works, I imported a JDM cluster.

 

Everything seems comparable to the stock, except for this mysterious grey sensor. It attaches where the three exposed contacts are and I've been unable to figure out what it does for the life of me!

 

Any ideas?
