got my trip computer this week, tried putting it in tonight. no luck

i butchered up the elec. aerial switch plug as I dont have elec aerial, got the 4 little pin connecters out of the plug with some wire on each pin, but my question is, how do I get the pins into the trip plug and the dash cluster plugs? Cant figure it out and im crackin the s**t bad!

The pins will be too big. You need an instrument cluster plug or another clock plug for the donor pins.

Mate the GLi's dont have a loom for the trip computer. If you were installing the clock then it would just be a matter of plug and play.

the clock plug is the same as the trip plug, only the clock plug is short of 3 wires, lights, dimmer and data line. i had the 3 wires there and wanted to know how to slot them into the plug. Doesnt matter, figured it all out and works beautiful.
