    hey all
    as you know, i fuked up my clsuter
    but figured out what was wrong, the connectors were in the wrong way

    so put them in the right way, but have new problem

    - tacho doesn't work (could be sticky, but i've tried 3!!!! different clusters and none work) my oringinal cluster worked, but doesn't now
    - lights all over the place
    when i have the first orange connector in right way, indicators don't work but immobilsor does
    when i put it in the wrong way, indicators do work but immobilsor doesn't

    i've tried 3 different clusters and still ahve this issue

    think it's the connectors, but i dont know where they go to in the loom.

    could it be the ECU or the BCM as others have suggested?

    just the tacho, immobilor and the idiot lights that are giving me the shits

    thanks!

    also, does anyone know a good auto electrican in SE melb?

    you have burnt some wiring behind the dash, its common when the connectors are in wrong or the wrong model dash is used.

    i htink i may have burnt some wires
    because i put the conenctors in wrong and i smelt burning in one of the clusters
    but now all 3 clusters, indicators don't work
    so it has to be a universal wiring issue

    ehre are some picts
