Hello all. My LCD display has burnt out and the only thing I can see on it is the very outer edges.
I have looked at a replacement and they seem to be on back order.
2000 450es - 37200-HN0-A12 - METER ASSY., COMBINATION (MPH) - $282.81 Back Order
I have read that a 2001 450es combination meter is a direct replacement but is also on back order.
2001 450es - 37200-HN0-A61 - METER ASSY., COMBINATION (MPH) - $266.08 Back Order
I can get the combination meter for a 450s but I dont know if it would show what gear I'm in or what else wouldn't work.
2000 450s - 37200-HN0-A02 - METER ASSY., COMBINATION (MPH) - $157.36
There were many changes made in 2002 450es but I wonder if one of those would work due to speed being measured at front end.
2002 450es - 37200-HN0-771 - METER ASSY., COMBINATION (MPH) - $229.75
I have considered getting the one for the 2000 450s or the 2002 450es and just swapping the screen onto my meter. I don't think honda would make different screens for every model. As a matter of fact a screen out of a rancher with es might be the same.
Has anyone else attempted anything like this? I can't find a used one and if I did it would likely be in the same condition as mine. I am pretty good with electronics so I may just try to find some not working meters on ebay or junyard and see if the displays will swap onto my meter before spending $$$$$ on a new one just for test purposes.
Any help or insight will be greatly appreciated as I am desperate to have my display back and I love my 19 y/o Honda and definitely do not want to buy a new foreman!
