Hello all, I got a 2017 cluster for my 2013... seems like that might have been a slight mistake. Everything works fine but the TPMS obviously and the P flashes in the bottom. Trying to decide if I should sell on ebay and look for a 2013. Man what a difference though on usability. Anyone know how to make that flashing P go away? I can deal with the TPMS

I would sell it and look for a 13. I use a 2013 cluster in my 2014 and had the same issue you describe (flashing P) when I tried a 2019 cluster but TPMS worked. I believe their was a transition on the TPMS for 2014 on.

The flashing P is because the cluster is from an 8 speed and the truck is a 6 speed. Might also do it in the opposite configuration. Different issue from the TPMS mis-match.

Looking to upgrade my 2018 3500 tradesman cluster. Is there any difference from 2016-2018 clusters? The ones from 2016 are way cheaper on carpart so I’ll go with 2016 if there’s no reason to get a newer one.

I think you'll be good but they are fairly easy to sell if its not right.

I just installed a 2016 into my 2018. took all of 20 minutes. So far so good.
