Default took dash out and now speedo,odo,cruise,and fuel calculator dont work. help!

i recently took my dash out and changed heater core. after reassembling my speedometer, odometer, fuel calculator, and cruise dont work. the only thing i see out of place is a green female connector, next to the main harness with the bolt through it. i can not find a male end anywhere, and sadly cant remember if there was one. any advice would be appreciated.

Sounds too me you back lights and warning lights might not work ether. and if the wire comes off from pcb where the harness hooks up thats the only thing it could be. Let us know.
