Exclamation Help with fitting digital clock/temp read out

Hey guys. I am pretty new to this forum so go easy on me ;-)

Moving on to the problem.
currently have a analog clock and I would like to upgrade to a digital clock/temp read out.

I am very careful to say digital clock/temp read out because it it not an OBC......

I have torn the old clock out and the digital clock/temp read out is in place but it does not work.

What I Had going to the old clock:
Red-Yellow (Power)
Red-Grey (illumination)
Brown (Ground)

I have a seen a diagram for an 18 button OBC online, and apparently the digital clock/temp read out has the same top 10 pins on the connector?
but I am not sure because that diagram is for a 1998 E36 not a 1991 like mine.
Here is the diagram I am referring to:

Really I am not sure what to connect to make this thing work
