Default Instrument cluster question (LOL)

This is for the 94-96 SC's.

The handbook says that the Canada SC's have the taillight indicator while the American US SC's have the headlight indicator, and they look different.

On my SC which was sold new in Alabama and has been there all it's life until last month, it has what the handbook calls the Canadian version cluster.

I'm looking for a head count of who has which version cluster because I don't suspect the handbook is correct on SC's only sold in the US or in Canada.

Who has the US version cluster and who has the Canadian version? (I HAVE seen both clusters however, but the Canadian clusters are always in KPH not MPH as seen in the photo)

Mine has the taillight indicator. Of course, it is a Canadian model so no surprise.

That is a failure indicator, not an indicator that says it is on. Everyone has a failure indicator.

I've got the USA version, but I bought it off another member here. I noticed all of my 92-94 clusters don't have anything there.

That's because it wasn't invented yet

At some point in 1993 they decided we needed a light to tell us our lights were ON. New for 94..............

I think it is a mistake, because I have a "supposed" U.S model SC...My headlight indicator looks just like the one in the 1st picture (Canadian model?) but is in "MPH" and not in "KPH".
