Exclamation Help W/ Gauge Cluster

I recently bought a 06 Chevy SS (160mph) cluster for my 06 Chevy cobalt LT, (120mph). After install, the DIC didn't want to clear pop up messages or scroll through the functions. To make sure I didn't damage anything, I reconnected the original, and it worked fine. I was under the impression that all 06's match to 06's without any issue. Anyone know a fix to this?

are you sure the ss cluster you bought is from an 06? if it has the part number on a sticker still attached to the cluster, what is the number?

That cluster should not work with your car it is designed for 08-10 Cobalt or 08-09 G5.

yea I googled it, the guy advertise it as a 06, not an 08. So I'm going to return it, and fine an 06.

I found an ss cluster on eBay that I was looking to buy. He had a few pictures of it so I cross checked the pictured part number and found out he hadn't listed it properly either. Seems like a common problem on there. I always confirm the part number with the seller before purchase now.

Yup that's exactly why you have no sounds.... 07 and up the blinker and sounds come through the drivers side door speaker. 05 and 06 it comes from the guage cluster.

Bumping this for a related question. I pulled a cluster (white faces/ 140mph) from a Cobalt sedan at a junkyard today, but it wasn't an SS. Anyway the numbers on the sticker are 15246265 and *506265A051150191* (and something else that says 3ACAR). It also has the speaker on the back, so this must be an 05-06 cluster. I assume this will this not work then, if I put it in my wife's 2009 2LT sedan? I know I wouldn't hear the turn signal, but what about everything else?
