Power ( heavy yellow) goes Ign switch - relay - inhibitor switch

Time you bought a FSM ; well worth it for this sort of work
Best $60 you will spend

Yes that's the "info and gauges thing". Its your instrument cluster above the relay. In case the pic isn't clear yours should be just like on my '90. Its under the steering wheel if you unbolt the carpet, pull it back and stick your head under there(if you can fit) you can barely see it next to that a/c clutch relay. The ac clutch relay should be marked as such anyway and the starter enable relay is usually marked "12v", but it should be the one closest to the steering wheel(on the right from your view under the wheel).

lol. Hindsight's not only 20/20, it can be painful. The relay is a little black square, fits in like a plug and comes out with a tug. Replacements like 6 bucks down at an auto parts store. Had to change that little bastard more than once on mine.
