Unhappy Connector Problems?

I believe the main connecting plug on my sporty has some bad connections. The turn signals and speedo don't work, but the headlight, tach, neutral light, etc. are still fine. My bike is a 2001 Sport.

How do you tighten up the connections in that plug? I've been up in there, but I don't really understand how the connections work. I have the shop manual for my bike, and it has some vague instructions on them, but I must be an idiot because still don't get it. Anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks!

I had a similar problem, you need to make sure the connectors are totally pressed together, till completely bottomed. If not, the speedo and turn signals won't work correctly.
