i got an el gli series and was wondering what some wire are uesd for at the back on the dash as they have no buttons for them cause there blocked off.( the buttons didnt come with this serie)
1. an orange clip on top of the back wiper button. the colour of the wires are sliver with balck, blue with red, red and brown.
2. white clip on top of the petrol release. the wire colours are black and red with blue.
when i hooked up the white clip one on the petrol release button it was making a clicking sound behide the dash in the center.

if someone can tell me what buttons goes with these clips. i think the orange clip is for the trip computer but not sure.

Plug is for the power/econ switch for auto column shift models.

Plug for the boot release, not fitted to wagons, but some wiring is part of the loom.

Slightly OT..
My work car is a EFII Futura Auto (floor shift) Wagon. It has the Econ switch neat the floor shifter like normal, and this switch works. However it also has the Econ switch on the dash like a column shift, although this one does nothing.

Just something interesting that caught my attention.
