Cluster connection question...

Hi everybody, I have a little question about the back side of my instrument cluster... the green section in the back has a bunch of different "ports" or whatever they may be called and I can't remember which one the little plug i disconnected goes back into....I have forgotten where i pulled it from...duhh
I had to change a couple of gauges and all went well except for that little plug.... I believe, from reading on that it is a cruise connection.

Any help is much appreciated.... here is a pic that i have highlighted said area, ignore the arrows they just show the screw locations..

Lol I just shove the plug into one of those plugs to the right of that picture. My cruise did work after. Worse case if it doesn't work just switch the plug. Simple.

any one of the 3 sockets that are stacked vertically will work for the cruise control.
plug and play.

Correct - all three are speed output. There is more than one for those of us with OBC etc.
