2/06 seems to be the month that Holden ran out of the gauge pod friendly harnesses and started using another unit. The best thing to do is to pop off the cover panel and look around for the magic plug. Good thing you asked before buying the gauge pod -- as others have done.

Download the installation instructions for the 2005/2006 pod from JHP and see how they remove the upper panel, etc. It's very simple. You just need to be patient.

I have read extensively the reviews of the JHP GTO Sports Binnacle Gauges and Dash Clusters on this site and am considering buying a set. I have also read that the plug that the set interfaces with (on top of the dash) may have been discontinued around February 06. My 06M6 was built in February, does anyone have any experience with a newer car or specific date when they stopped putting the plug in? Also heard there was a kit to retrofit it, for newer cars, any details on that? The JHP gauges look really good and as XMAS approaches I want to add this to my list.

Here is the email directly from JHP. While it does not specifically answer the question of the wiring dates, there is a solution. They guages are most indeed on my Christmas list as well.

Good Luck

Thank you for your enquiry about the JHP GTO sports gauge kit to suit your
'06 GTO.
Depending on the build month of your GTO the install is easy.
Pre March '06 its plug & play $460 shipped with grey dials / psi
Post February '06 will need wiring harness $540 with grey dials and you
will need the patch
harness wired into the dash harness.
The JHP 05/06 GTO Sports Binnacle Kit is the only factory style GTO Sports
Binnacle Kit on the market which comes with an easy to install plug and play
system. We include a step by step, pictured instruction guide which will
allow anyone to install the JHP 05 GTO Sports Binnacle Kit easily.

The JHP 05 GTO gauge pod has a LHD bias towards the driver which allows for
easy monitoring of the gauges. The genuine G.M. double humped design
provides protection from sun glare. Therefore, your gauges will be visible
and readable during the whole day.

The genuine factory gauges are color matched, and provide oil pressure and
voltage information. As they are genuine G.M. componentry they will also
illuminate in complete synchronization with your factory dash.

The JHP 05 GTO Sports Binnacle Kit includes factory gauges available in the
following colors:
Red, Yellow, Impulse Blue, Barbados Blue, Grey, Purple, and fusion / brazen.

Gauges

Thanks for the info, sounds like I am right on the cusp. I will probably do a little exploration and make sure the plug is there prior to purchase.

I've been looking at these. Mine has a build date of 02/06. I popped off the panal and didn't see any harness under it. (The panal comes off easily by gently prying up the front with a flat screwdriver)

Is the wiring hidden somewhere or should it be right under the panal?

For some reason, some are right on top, some are not. Mine is not and I will either have to fish for it or pull the radio and find it. The directions are available on the JHP website. Pull the pdf from them and have a look.

Ok, thanks. Wasn't aware they had directions posted, I'll go take a look.
