[DML] Wiring schematic for binnacle

Hello Max,

If you have one of the large schematic drawings (not the ones in the shop manual, etc,) the detail for the instrument panel is pretty good.  Part of your problem with the LEDS is that they are diodes and must be installed with the correct polarity.  Which is not indicated on the devices.  Using a 12 V source while (sorry to say this) the binnacle is out of the car, and the schematic, power each LED separately.  You will see that some are grounded to the binnacle, so that you have to apply plus voltage to the connector on the circuit board.  Others LEDS get +12 from the common supply on the binnacle and get grounded remotely.  With those, power the common + 12 on the binnacle and supply the return (-12 V) on the individual pins.  If you discover a LED isn't polarized correctly (not lighting), remove it, and rotatate its connector 180 degrees and put back in the binnacle board.  

The only other problem you might encounter is the copper on the connector portion of the board might have become unbonded from the flexible backing...I had this with one of the gauge lines.  Carefully re-glue with a good glue.  

If you're having trouble, and live in the CA/LA area, I'd be glad to help.
