AC rereverse indiglo gauge install need help!
i had my friend install my reverse indigglo gauges i bought from the store on this site.. but for some GOD DAMN reason they only work.. when i have the brightness knob to the left of the steering well.. turned all the way down so that the interior lighting is so dim.. it looks as if its off!!! besides the installation instructions on this site.. does anyone have pics of how the wires are connected at the back.. because i think he grounded the gauges right to the screw behind where the gauge cluster sits.. was that the wrong spot? not grounded properly??or is the wiring wrong somewhere else???? PLEASE HELP.. ITS ANNOYING WHEN MY GAUGES FLICKER WHEN I WANNA READ MY FUEL GAUGE AND RADIO LCD... PLEASE POST PICS IF U HAVE !!! THANKS A LOT!!!

there are only two bare wires on the gauges...

the red one should be your positive line (+)... goes to your headlamp as photo'd above

the black one should be your negative line (-)... goes to GROUND or (-) Terminal on your battery

...

both pictures look much better in a photo program where you can ZOOM in for detail smile

improper wiring. your guy possibly hooked them up incorrectly or to a device that is not constantly giving enough electricity.

you might also want to do a full color sweep/bright-dark sweep with the controls. sometimes the colors rotate for several minutes until you do something (if they are not hooked up correctly)

you might also want to check that your ( ) is hooked to ( ) and the (-) is hooked to (-)

I took my gauges out to cut the wire for DRLs. or the reverse beep noise. WELL, either one. And I had to unplug the two wire harnesses.
Just plug them back in and it'll run fine. smile As long as you didn't yank real hard on the gauge cluster trying to get it out (before seeing the harnesses). spineyes
