    Pin 20, of the X16 connector behind instrument cluster.

    Pin 47 on the DME.

    I'm not sure on any colors, as the wiring diagrams I have don't have diagrams for a TDS, so i'm using the M52 diagrams - The pin positions should still be the same.

    majic !thanks again - last questions if willing !

    can you identify what pins 23 and 24 supply on the x 16 conenector ?

    and pins 4, 5 and 19 on the blue instrument cluster connector ?

    (I am in very near final stages of engine and wiring transplant into a classic car- scary stuff but engine now starting fine with a screwdriver ready to clone onto classic car ignition switch!)

    Pin 23, is an input, Voltage supply, terminal 15 for indicator and warning lamps
    Pin 24, is a ground, Ground supply, terminal 31 for instrument cluster electronics

    X17:
    Pin 4, is an input, Voltage supply, terminal 15 for instrument cluster electronics
    Pin 5, is an input, Voltage supply, terminal 15 for battery charge indicator
    Pin 19, is an input, Oil pressure warning lamp control

    Hope this is of some help.
