Re: Anyone with autometers actually have a dimmer that works?
i hooked up three autometer cobalt guages, dimmer wire tapped into the dimmer wire behind the light switch so everything would dim together. worked for about 3 months then driving down the interstate, the headlight switch shorted, a shot of smoke come out of the dash, and the whole truck went dark, headlight/dash/trailer/dome, all of it. doin 75mph down the interstate at 3 am pulling a 13k g/n, thats freaky.
i now have the dimmer wire trippin a relay to power all lighting aspects. then i got the dimmer from autometer and tapped that in.
on a side note, when i got my guages in, and tapped like the first example, i could not get them dim enough. you can also put that dimmer inline, and "dim the dimmer",
