Default Gen 3 2002 SC2 Instrument Cluster Connector Wiring Help

Hi guys. I need some help with my Gen 3 2002 Saturn SC2. After having success with the IPJB A2 (F5) issue, I had the confidence to take on another electrical issue. My instrument cluster was acting up... back lights and opera lights flickering and going off, turn signals indicators working when they feel like it, etc. When I notices that things go on and off when I wiggle the harness by the connector, i decided to retension those tiny GM Micro-pack terminals. Normally I take pictures of everything before I start, but this time I figured if I go one pin at a time, I won't need pictures. Well... I must have reinstalled a terminal into the wrong position. The cluster is basically dead except for the security light.

Would anyone out there be kind enough to provide me with a pin-out chart or close-up pictures of their instrument cluster wiring harness so I could get the right colors in the right sockets?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Thanks to the diagram, I found my problem. I inserted the pin that should have been in A1 into B1. Cluster works again. All's good in saturnville. Thanks again.

I've been having instument cluster problems ever since I replaced the dash bulbs. I'm fairly certain that retensioning the electrical pins in the harness pack will solve the problem. How should I go about this?
Is there a way to retension without pulling each pin out? Thanks!

There are male pins and female sockets. Sometimes when reconnecting connections, pins or sockets fail to align and push against each other resulting in pushing out either pin or socket. A careful visual inspection can sometimes reveal which terminal pushed out by how much wire is displaced in a bundle or if a terminal peeks out behind the plastic connector before disconnecting things.

Thanks, I'll check it out.
I'm mainly trying to figure out the best way to retension the pins. Thanks for your input.
