Yup, it's gonna have to be replaced. The easiest option is a used digital
dash. But, yes, you CAN convert to analog. Basically you have to replace the
digidash speedo sender with a mechanical one, and re-pin the connectors. All
the sensors are the same, they are just wired in a different order. This has
been done and well documented over on AudiWorld. I'm sure with a bit of
searching the archives, you can find the info.
