Display dead
« on: 22 September 2018, 11:36:38 »

Just bought an Omega B Z2.2XE Executive Automatic this week. The display doesn't come on at all.
Checked fuse nr. 15.
If the display has to be removed, please give me some instructions.

I don't understand "head unit". You mean the display? It's the one with no bulbs and 2 connectors.

If have bought another unit. It's not 100% identical to the old one but the grey and black connectors do fit. However, when I turn on the ingnition the display stays black.

What now? Can I test the display somehow?

Some extra information: the old one had 3 aluminium contacts on the top to set the date etc. with 2 buttons above the display.

The new one doesn't have that and the housing was slightly different so it didn't fit in the dashboard. Luckely the new complete display, with printcard and everything, fitted exactly in the old black housing and then, ofcourse, also fitted in the dashboard. However, no sign of life and now, also, the fuel gauge doesn't move. Is it going from bad to worse?

The screen/display is paired to the head unit... you won't get it to work before the car rusts into a scrap yard  :'(

Sounds like replacement display is the wrong type.

With the NCDx system, you cant randomly change parts, due to the security coding.

Sounds promising............not

But that would mean that the old one wasn't paired either? Sounds improbable (is that good english?) to me.
Doesn't it even light up when you turn the key?? Or some error message??

On the backside of the display you should have a sticker with a two letter code and a GM part number.

Tell us what you have there.

And I second TheBoy, you must have got a display from some other car. All Omega displays fit in the instrument panel.
