i have a falcon au series 1 and put in a XR 6 cluster - everything works except for the right side indicator led and when the lights are on the cluster does not light up - my old cluster works fine???
Can anyone tell me a way to fix this or is it that the cluster will not be compatiable?
All the instrumentation operates fine (all 6 gauges).
Im lost on what to do as i cant see my driving cluster at night driving :(((

What series did the XR6 cluster come from? If it came from series one, then its should all be OK minus the oil pressure gauge but we'll get to that. Was it a XR6 S1 cluster?

Yes but if its a series 2 or 3 cluster the wiring is very different. I think the illumination wire was one of them. Tell us what series, if its S1 aswell, swap the globes over and check the interior lights fuse.

Hhow did you change the wires around, pop the pins or solder, mabe worth double checking your soldering if that's the way you went.

Anyway I guess check your bubs and what series cluster, if neither of them check your altered wiring.
