cruise control

Last week the tach on my 89 325i stopped working. I traced the problem back to the dashboard. I pulled the dash panel out,cleaned the connections (all of them) applied di-electric grease and presto I had a tach again. Now the problem , I think the cruise control pick-up is a single wire plugged into the dash panel. Dum-dum me didn't pay a lot of attention to that single wire as I thought it would be easy to find the plug in. The cruise worked before I fixed the tach, but I can't seem to locate the proper spot to plug the pick-up in. At least I think it's the cruise wire as everything else works on the dash. Jetsam

Do you mean '89 (no typo)? That would be an E30... Let us know so I can move the thread if necessary.

No problem; just making sure.
