Does anyone happen to have the wiring for a 79 Monte ? Going to install my Dakota Digital gauges soon and need to know what’s what at the gauge connector.

This is the easiest pin out I've found. I used it for many idiot light to gauge dash conversions. If this does not fit the bill I will see if I can get a picture of the wire diagram for the dash. Wire Diagram.png

Finally getting around to wiring my gauges and I noticed both the blinkers and the brake warning light all have 2 circuits going to them. any idea what that is about ? I wanted to cut the factory connector off but I’m not sure what to do with the extra wire or which one I should use

Those have dual purpose. The blinkers have one wire for the 4 way flasher & one for the turn signal flasher. The brake light has one going to the parking brake switch & one going to the pressure switch in the proportioning valve.

So I need to wire both of them in to the Dakota Digital box the same way they were from the factory then.

Thanks

I never have worked with an aftermarket cluster but I would say yes since those indicator lights will need to function for both listed functions.
