Ok. Dealer said it could be wire cluster behind instruments on dash board. But I cannot find any such connector at stores in area.

Damn Dealers. Thanks I have a quote for one it's 50- 75.00 but they need to take the old one out to get the numbers on it. Is it something I can do or does a professional need to replace this damn connector
