How to ILLUMINATE 94-98 cluster???

I was curious of which contacts on the back of the 94-98 cluster will iluminate the lights behind the gauges. I assume there's just one power and one ground.
Thanks guys.

One power and two grounds. One of the connectors C251 has a BK wire all the way to one end. The BK wire is pin 16 and is one of the grounds on that connector. Pin 11 (LB/R) is the Illumination Lamp feed. On the other connector C250 pin 5 is the ground for the other half of the cluster lights.

I tried this and could only get the left side lights to illuminate.

You need a meter and follow the wiring related to the dash lights to see where you're losing your voltage or connection.
