I've never pulled the cluster in an E30 but it sounds a lot like more work then cutting and twisting some wires together.

Bollocks, I shorted it and it worked fine for a bit but now the light is on all the time. Is there supposed to be a sensor on both the rear wheels? Mine only had one on the passenger side.

Guess I'll short the fronts now.
