    Instrument cluster wiring help. 1977 Rabbit Diesel

    I removed my dash 6 months ago during my restore and need some wiring help. When i took the old dash out all of the wires came out of the instrument cluster plug, I put them all back in but didnt know the order. I have a manual but it doesnt show my cluster, its shows a 14 point plug but mine is only a 12 point. Any body know the wire order or have a better diagram?

    If you look at the wiring harness diagrams, you will see that they tell you which pin goes where..... as in (this is just an example)....



    Looking at G5.
    h is connected to t14/5 that is the large connector pin 5 that is as you are looking at it the 5th pin to the right.
    it is also at the top a red/black wire.

    So if you have the wiring diagrams, then you have all the information you need.

    Also on the under side of the mylar they usually have what the pins are labeled in German as a cross check.
    on my 93
    example:
    93 cabriolet
    MotoMeter Cluster.
    Cluster----wiring diagram

    1. innebel --- dash lights
    2. masse ----ground
    3. tank ------gas
    4. temp ------water
    5. KLI ------- Tach
    6. UHR -------Clock
    7. Fernlicht ---High Beam
    8. AIR BAG
    9. Del 1,8 -----Oil
    10. Cat/EGR -- unused
    11. o 3 oil -----buzzer
    12. ladek ----- alternator
    13. Blink 49a ---Turn Light
    14. PLUS ------ ignition 12V
    What do Divorces, Great Coffee and Cars all have in common?
    They all Start with good GROUNDS.
    Replace all of them that you can, 99 percent of flakiness will disappear.


    92, 93 Cabriolet.... 89, and 90 are Deceased.

    Thanks for the reply but this still doesn't help me. I know how to read them. My issue is that my book has this same diagram but my plug is a 12 point not 14

    I'm thinking my rabbit is an early build but I can find any books or anything pre 1977
