Trying to figure out why my Gen 1 idiot light wouldn't work, I removed my instrument cluster figuring the light bulb was deceased. While I had it in my hand, I saw that the plastic ribbon circuit on the back had some issues that needed repair. I tried to follow each copper path, trying to figure out where it went, what it did, etc. This led me down the rabbit hole, so I wrote the attached PDF. I hope the folks here can use this information. If you do read it, and if you find errors, please let me know so I can make the necessary changes...

Thank you rmesgt,
I'll print this out and add it to my CUCV repair file.
Awesome.... that is why it is in a PDF file. The colors won't look the same but everything else should be OK. Please let me know if you find mistakes so I can get them corrected
