Does anyone know what wire on the gauge cluster controls the back light illumination. Mines not working and I'm going to hardwire it to a toggle switch. If you could also post pictures of it that would help out alot. Thanks in advance for the help.

Hmm, I think you missed it.
It looks like the backlight Illumination is on C-06 pins 6 and pin 4 to the cluster. Powered by Fuse #5 and controlled by rheostat connected to C-23.

I'm pretty sure it's in this manual under Circuit Diagrams/Meter and Gauges and Chassis Electrical/Combination Meters
I looked all throughout that manual and couldn't find it. Either what I'm looking for isnt in there or missed it

Oh ok, I did miss that, I see it now. Thank you for pointing that out to me. Im sure i can find it when i tear the dash apart but Is there any way to tell what color wire those are?

Sure it says on the diagram Green/White stripe and Black/Yellow stripe. There is a Black wire from the rehostat to where ever A goes on the next page. The index for the wire colors is in the beginning of the manual.
