So far so good with the catalyst; It has been about 400 miles since the CEL came on, and I've driven it in a variety of conditions, both lightly and pretty hard at times.

In other news, I got tired of having to mash my trip, mph/kmph, + and - buttons, so I pulled apart the dash and soldered in some replacements I got from digi-key for ~$3 shipped.

Here's the cluster removed:




The buttons are on small, removable PCBs in the back. There are plastic tabs and a screw holding them in place. The tabs break super easy (I broke one) but don't seem to be at all necessary for securing the PCB.




Replacements:




Here's one new button next to an old one. The best way to get the old buttons out is really to tear them to bits, and then desolder the legs individually. I replaced all 4, and they work very well. There's now a very pleasant tactical "click" when they close circuit.
