    if you look below the ashtray at the back there is a rectangular blanking plate, put a screw driver in a lever it out, then plug and interrogate fault memory.

    well think the dash has been out tho before but to be honest cant think at all why it'd have been cut off, then again if the dash has been out it may still be behind the dash and not be put back
