The early ones such as yours arnt very reliable :(  and are incompatible with the newer, better ones.

They are repairable

A pig to repair MIDs.

I think I'd be looking at retrofitting the newer, single grey plug model, as your chances of finding a good, early, twin plug one are next to zero.

Newer style mid has all same functions, plus 2 extra (trip distance and trip gallons).

Its likely a newer style one will need proper configuration with Tech2.

It will lso need so rewireing behind display
