so i managed to installed the DIC on my 05 impala base i got me the display from my work and i got a harness from a different vehicle i printed out a diagram from http://www.bbengineer.com/cars/impala/dic.htm it was very helpful and thanks to them i got it done. i separated the wires that plugs to the DIC and ran it all the way to the rear pillar i unplug the wires from the lights around the vehicle and plugged it into the same plug from the DIC so i got two wire and they unite at the end of the plug.

Make sure the zone is set right and do a calibration. If that doesn't work, try to take the DIC back off and make sure the circuit board for the compass is in right.

See the bottom of THIS PAGE to perform the zone setup.
