G'day guys recently received an AU3 4/2002 Wagon Forte and the base instrument cluster is goin bananas. I keep reading that it maybe an earth problem. I have chased up and cleaned almost all the earths between battery and firewall. But I desparately just need a base model instrument cluster wiring diagram or at very least to know what colour wire the earth wire is on the back of the cluster plugs. Pls can someone help me with this problem. Just would like to either splice directly into earth at back of cluster and run a new earth wire to body or just to battery to test this theory. It's the only thing left for RWC and get this baby back on the road. Thanks

Thanks heaps getting sideways bro much appreciated!!! Will try re-earthing cluster first from that no. 1 or 2 l/h plug (black wire) first before getting cluster. I honestly don't think it'll need bigger all for a RWC. I used to be an inspector so know wat they look for! Trying to get thru with the tyres and I also have to chase a centre and possiby rear muffler for the beast. Centre certainly leaking but pretty damn sure rear is too! Oh get a new horn and a r/r actuator. If anyone knows where to get a cheap bonnet release cable (apprenently Ford stoped doin them). New BA genuine are about 40-50 bucks. also wagon centre and rear muffler. R/R(drivers) central locking actuator, remote, good cheap 2nd hand roadworthy tyres pls let me know asap. Thanks so much guys
