Not sure whether to put this in the 00-05 or the 06+ section, but here it goes:

With no regard to physical size and fitment into the dash, is an 00-05 Cluster compatible with an/the 06+ Databus revisions?

Random question: Are the clusters considered a node on the network or are they kind of dummy and just running like in a promiscuous mode? In other words, are they specifically addressed or do they just listen?

Probably just listen to the same info that other devices pick up on. Problem is that 06+ is CAN and 00-05 is OBD2. Two different network protocols, if what I read was right.

I don't know the ins and outs of the Class 2 Databus, but I will tell you that I'm pretty sure it's a node as you can pull OBDII codes out of it (along with the radio) and test all the functions in it with a Tech 2 (needle sweeps, lights, transmission gear indicator, etc).

The cluster is (as all modules are) an active node. The cluster requests info across the OBD-II bus to drive the gauges/. Like Frank points out, it can also accept commands to do things (like sweep gauges, turn on MIL, illuminate indicators, etc)

The 00-05 cluster is Class2 and the 06+ is CAN and they are not compatible

Beyond that, there are tons of architectural difference that make them incompatible as well, not to mention the physical sizes are different
