Need wiring help for overhead console

Can someone who has a FSM send me a diagram for a overhead console?

I am trying to install a pre 97 console into my 97. got this from a junk yard for cheap but I can;t seem to get the compass to work. I figured out the map lights but that's it.

I found the empty plug for what I hope is for the console (the wire colors match) I found the wires for the temp sensor, I have most of the wires connected. I only have a purple/gray stripe from vehicle harness that is switched hot, but nothing on the console harness that matches .

now on the console harness side I have a orange/blk, blue/ orange, and a blue/red. I think these wires are for dimmers,tail lights and something else.

I am not using the keyless option.

Why would you want to use a pre-97 console in a later model? All they display is compass and temperature. You can get a 97+ console out of a Jeep or a Chrysler minivan and plug it right into your XJ. They're a lot easier to come by and it uses the PCI bus in your Jeep to display - Compass, Temperature, Trip Odometer, Average MPG, Instant MPG, distance to empty...

If you PM me your email address, I can send you the wiring diagram for the earlier OHC and the later one.

Chrysler Mini Van consoles don't display Trip Odometer, Average MPG, Instant MPG, Distance to Empty... when installed in an XJ CHerokee.

As in, the options aren't in the menu or it isn't compatible with the XJ PCM? I guess I was misinformed. It looks the same as ZJ one.
