high guys just need some help fitting the resistor to the NL cluster, ive read the thread but the back of my cluster doesn't look identical to the picture in the tech doc so im not sure where the resistor should go so if some one can some one have a look and let me know where to put it it would be much appreciated

You could temp install a 0 - 100ohm pot to see what fixed resistance may better suit for dimming.

sorry, im looking to install the resistor that allows the dash lights and interior lights to stay on when i turn on the headlights

Needle Assemblies.
NOTE : Fairmont, Fairmont Ghia, and EL-GT Clusters are missing 1 Resistor, that is used to allow LCD Illumination, with the Park Lamps on !
When fitting an EF/EL Fairmont, EF/EL Fairmont Ghia, or ELGT Instrument Cluster to an EF/EL GLi/Futura/XR model Falcon, you will Need to add this resistor for the LCD Panels to function correctly.
Without this resistor, the LCD Panels (Clock/Trip Computer/Odometer/Climate Control) WILL NOT ILLUMINATE AT ALL WHEN THE PARK LAMPS OR HEADLAMPS HAVE BEEN TURNED ON !)
NOTE : This resistor is not required when Fitting Fairmont/Fairmont Ghia/EL-GT/Fairlane/LTD Clusters to vehicles fitted with a High Series BEM (Fairmont/Ghia/EL-GT/Fairlane/LTD)
Information for fitting this resistor (and the reasons behind it - are outlined bel

If you're not using a high series BEM (green), then you should follow the info I've given you.
