Ok i see it now, there is an obvious in and out on the instrument cluster voltage regulator. Its this larger metal prong piece thats the ground looking at it like you said. Then theres 2 prongs set up that look like the "in".My only confusing problem was that the piece looks like it only goes half way in, but then again its not going any farther in so i'm not going to mess with pushing it in any further. Also, ill take it out tomorrow and get my voltage tester. So in theory, if the piece is out of the car not connected to ANYTHING and it doesn't give voltage the problem is something else? Correct me if im wrong.
