Cut DIC Pigtail

I am building a kit car that will re-use the gauge cluster and I accidentally cut the 3 wires coming from the Info/Return buttons. I looked in my service manual and looked at the pinout for the gauge cluster and cannot determine where I need to repin the three wires. They are green/white, grey, and black/white(i know this is a ground.)

I know the circuit is 1358, but beyond this I cannot tell where to repin in. I also looked at the pinout of the PCM and BCM and cannot find circuit 1358 or "DIC Switch".

I have looked around a great deal on the forum and searched for a solution before posting so I appreciate any help in the thread.

I have that plug intact, but the wires leading out of it are cut. I need to figure out where wires 1, 3 and 7 go at the other end

Thats the confusing part. All the wires are present in the gauge cluster connector.

Upon further review, I believe I simply cut the connection between the button and the ribbon cable inside the steering wheel. Sorry to bother you with such a newbie blunder but I gotta say you are a connector pinout ninja!

And please keep us posted on your build, I've always wanted to see the actual progress and hear feedback from somebody that builds one. I would love to build a turbo one haha, would make my own carbon fiber body for it though
