    Difference between 1HG and JHM cars?

    I'm wondering if I can use a dash harness from an identical trim car, same transmission, number of doors ext. But it has a JHM vin and not an 1HG.

    And so the car has a different part number and it is not interchangeable? If that's the case good to know if I'm ever getting one replaced.

    I'm hoping they used all the same boards. I was worried maybe in japan they had different pinouts since they might have had some domestic devices that they were modifying to USDM standards. whereas in America they might have started from the ground up on the circuit boards.

    I don't think you read what I just said... They are identical aside from a few interchangeable parts... However, trim levels and model years add options that can't be interchanged, so I would be more worried about that

    Thank you for clarifying man. This is the I answer I was hoping for.
