This is my first useful post in about a month, feel lucky escort section.
Taken from here originally (Custom Installed Remote Escort in NSX) . I actually did this and switched it up a little, so I figured I'd post.
The pictures are of a SR7, but all Escorts have the same display on them. Once you take the display off the board with a solder wick as shown above, you have to solder in new wires.
This is were mine is different. I used an old VGA cable I had lying around. It has 15 wires inside, 9 of these for the display, and 2 to power a bi-color LED. I mounted both the display and the led on a pc board from radio shack for easy mounting together in the car. I looped the wires through the pc board, and zip tied the wire to the board to take stress off the connections.
After you solder the one end of the cord to the display, solder the other side to the main unit. Make sure you line up the colors . The wires on the left are for another mod.
Test is out before you put everything back together.
Alright, so the last step may have been a jump, but thats how it looks now. There is only one more step for my system, after thats done, I'll make a thread of all the mods together. I can now easily take off my cluster trim by just disconnecting the VGA cable. Before it was one cable so taking trim more than 6" out of place was impossible.
