    Hello, swappingout a factory idiot gauge assm for a factory gauge pack, changed the oilsending unit and the water temp, fuel gauge works accurate. This pod will notlight up, has power to it and it dims on a test light as well. Is there asection that shows the pin-outs for the gauges as opposed to idiot lightpin-outs as the requirement for the gauge pack is different and one of the pinshas no wiring to it.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    You cant just plug in the factory gauges using the same plug without removing and re arranging the wires in the plug. Buick did make an adapter plug with essentially re routed the wires to the right terminals

    Chris's link shows the correct placement of the wires
