Instrument Cluster Wiring  Topic is solved

Post by Stu70 » Fri Sep 06, 2019 6:49 pm

Help !
I’m hoping someone has their dash top out at the moment and can confirm something for me.
On the top back of the cluster there are 3 green sockets - I believe right most 28 pin plug is listed as ‘A’ going left after alarm box is 16 pin ‘B’ then there is left most is a 5 pin plug - I’m thinking this is ‘D’ and goes to the info switch. I’m after the colour the directions - in my mind it’s D1 left most and white then yellow,pink,blue and right most D5 green.

Can anyone confirm this therory, or better yet a photo. There are no junkyards that have x70s anywhere and none that I can check on close by.

Being a bifuel the yellow info plug has been changed to a ’Gas’ switch to change between fuels, and the wiring harness leads to the bifuel brains...

Excuse all the wiring and wheel being on the correct side...

Many thanks

Watched a few RSPI videos and got a screen shot of the wiring.
Robert once again thank you for your invaluable service!

The picture is upside down so wheel is right way up for us, it’s a bugger keeping the coolant in when your upside down. Luckily with the coriolis effect the water screws itself in as it runs out. :mrgreen:

I’ll take some Pom juice with my a Kiwi.

Let’s respect cars choices to be BiFuel

Bifuel is too binary, ‘Car’ (non specific name ) prefers ‘pan fuel’.
Hence why I’m removing the oppressive ‘gas’ switch
