Speedometer not workin'

I know there are a dozen other threads on this subject, but I can't find out what I need. I have replaced the VSS; there was a new one in the glove box when i bought it. I assume I wired it right, the brand name of the part was gp sorensen(probably some autozone junk). I think I got the timing of the gear correct. This only leaves the cluster, on which the speedo doesn't light up. I read of some ribbon wire that fails? Anybody have any pics?

there are three wires leading to the speed sensor. you should read about 9vdc on one of them. if installed correctly it will be sent back to the speedo. it took me about 3 hrs to get the gear in correctly.
