I had removed wires from the outer plug that connects to the instrument cluster need a diagram on how to put back the wires in correct position

Oh boy, you've really done it. The Haynes manual should have the color codes on that harness connector listed with the connector position and number. They do for the majority of wires. The connectors are usually fine. It's the connector socket on the circuit card that needs the solder reheated with a 25 watt soldering pen to reflow it to make a good connection again.

Ignition switch 124 merc replace

Adjust the Mercedes telescoping steering wheel to the maximum extended position (maximum out position).
Move the front driver's seat to the rear-most position.
Disconnect the negative battery cable by loosening the retaining nut on the negative battery cable clamp and sliding the clamp off the battery terminal.
Remove the screws on the underside of the instrument panel cluster that hold the instrument cluster cowl in place and remove the cowl.
Remove the four screws holding the instrument cluster in place and remove the instrument cluster from the dash. Make sure to remove the electrical connectors from the back of the instrument cluster before trying to completely remove the cluster.
Turn the ignition key to the "I" position and remove the electrical plug in the back of the ignition switch. The switch should be exposed now that the cowl and instrument cluster have been removed. You will access the plug from the top of the ignition switch and cylinder assembly.
Loosen, but do not remove, the Allen bolt on top of the ignition cylinder that mates with the steering column using an Allen wrench.
Remove the two 13 mm bolts on top of the steering column. This will allow the steering column to drop down roughly 3 inches so that you can access the release button for the ignition switch.
Press the release button on the steering column where the ignition cylinder enters the column.
Turn the key to the "I" position and remove the ignition cylinder and switch assembly by pulling it out of the steering column.
Remove the ignition wiring from the back of the ignition switch and cylinder assembly by pressing down on the release tab on the electrical connector and pulling it off the switch.

How to replace the gas gauge

If the needle doesn't move at all at any given time from the resting position then the gauge is probably the problem. To test and/or replace the panel (in most cases, the gauges are together in a cluster panel, thus needing to replace the whole thing) you'll have to pull the dash, or at least part of it. To do it yourself, it's best to try and find a wiring diagram and/or make physical or mental notes of what plugs you removed from where. There's several resources to learn how to test the gauge for power (essentially, if the wires to it are working correctly, then it must be the gauge cluster). Your dash may be more simple though, it all depends. I've pulled a few dashes, and generally they take a few hours to pull apart then put back together (not including the time it takes for whatever your repair/testing takes).

Another issue could be a short in the wire to the fuel gauge, which can be tested for by simply testing the wires and seeing if the ground wire grounds and the positive wire provides power.

Similarly, a fuel tank sensor can be an issue if the gauge and wires are ruled out. Generally this is shown by a fuel gauge that fluctuates/bobs unnaturally, but other similar damage to the mechanism can result in a gauge that doesn't move at all. In this case you'd have to get this replaced, which isn't the cheapest or easiest job (whole gas tank needs to be removed, and the part isn't cheap).

You don't need a colour code as long as you have a test lamp or a voltmeter.
Turn the side lights, indicators, stop lights, reverse lights, rear fog lights on individually and test for a positive wire each time. Label them with some paper tape and a pen if it makes it easier to keep tabs on them.
All your lighting wiring is in the back of the car/truck/hatch, whatever. Your rear light clusters will lead you to all the wiring you need. If its any help, the rear light cluster bulb positions give away which wiring leads to which bulbs. You can see the colours of the wires right there.

Good luck.

Replaced the window switch on the drivers door. the drivers window is reversed on the switch. if you pull up on the switch the window goes down and vise versa.

It sounds alot like you may have the wiring plug in backwards. Here is the line of thought. Your switch is a 2 way switch with 2 options up and down. One switch position is on for up and one position is on for down. So what this means is if the wiring is backwards, you are giving the down wires the ON signal when the up switch is pushed and you are giving the up wires ON when down side of the switch is pushed.

I know it is a pain to pull the door apart and test, but the switch does not really know what way is up and down, this is handled by pulsing power to certain wires via the switch. I would advise taking the door apart and checking the positioning of the connector plug into the switch, making sure it is correctly in place.

Please post back if you need anything further or there are any new developments,

I need to know where to wire the green wire to read RPM's for an aftermarket tachometer install on a 1999 chevy s10 with a 2.2l 4cyl.

It is usually to the positive side of the coil - also depends on what type of distributor cap you have, if there is a 3-4 wire plug that goes to the cap, one of them should be marked TACH

Instrument cluster wiring position for connectors

Seems that you wants to replace your original cluster for another. One solution is,go to any auto parts,look on the manuals section for your particular car.then kindly ask the manager to make a copy of the dash cluster. If you are lucky enough you may be able to find booth diagrams. go from there.

1987 GMC Jimmy Distributor cap and Rotor replacement

A diagram may not be needed as its a reasonably easy fix to do on your own.the distributor ca p will only fit on properly one way because at the base of the cap locaters can only fit the distributor if they line up.When doing the spark plug leads do them one at a time and if nessecary write or mark leads as 1,2 etc .The rotor can only fit on one way but put a mark on the distributor to show where the rotor was pointing when you took it off and if it still points there when the new one is fitted.When changing distributor cap and leads they have to go to the correct place.Pays to mark the outside of distributor cap where the locating bits are On the new and old one.Fit the new cap and rotor then take a spark plug lead and fit to new cap 1 at a time.You can tell by lining up the marks on the outside of the distributor cap when you hold them one on top of the other.Good luck
