Been changing the batteries on the e28s instrument cluster but im wiring new ones outside the cluster to save hassle in future. Im just after some advice as to me wiring it all up properly. Heres a couple of pics, the first one is with the wiring done and the cluster reassembled but the batts got hot when i connected it up:
Ive connected 2 wires to the + terminals and the same with the negatives, spliced them and then onto the 2 1.2v nicads but as i said the batteries heat up quick. I THINK ive wired it properly but not sure, maybe its normal for the batteries to heat up?
Ive placed the old batts in the order they sat in the cluster for comparison :
This is the other end :
Appreciate any advice guys so i can get the cluster back in the car
