Look for place where some of these plugs fit?

I'm pretty sure you won't find places for all of them, it seems like all cars have plugs that go to nothing.

If that doesn't work you may have to double check the SI board and go tracing wires with a multimeter..

There is a good write-up on cluster issues in the FAQ/DIY section at http://www.e30tech.com/forum
