Re: trouble with illumination on gauges

i hooked mine up to the parking light wire coming out of the back of the light switch on the dash not sure now what wire it was but if you use a test light it will be easy to find.

Re: trouble with illumination on gauges

clip on a quick connect right on to the back of the brown wire iirc with your wire for your lights to your gauges. Where your lights are pop it out the whole deal (where you switch your lights on and off) with a flat head youll see the wire and it will even control illumination its been awhile but believe thats the right wire.

Re: trouble with illumination on gauges

the wire that you want is hooked up to the dimmer control that way when you dim your dash lights the gauge lights will dim also. when you test the wires turn the dimmer up and down and your test light should dim and get brighter.
