? For those with AC reverse indiglo Gauges.

ON the Ecelica install guide, it tells you to hook up the power to the headlights. Does this have to be done. I am pretty sure that there is a wire inside the car you could hook up the lights to. My engine bay looks really clean, and I don't want extra wires running through if they dont need to be! Any ideas\??

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

no you don't have to...


my illumination wire for when i turn the lights on is coming off of some wire underneath my dash from a connector not even connected to anything...something for an option...

i tested the wires to check that they were illumination wires and came on with the lighting and it worked...

I think that you can use the dimmer dial power.

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

if you read through the comments in that install guide, you will find a listing of "Some alternatives for power for reverse indiglo gauges" wave
