well, it's actually working. at first i thought it was some rip-off that i got off ebay but everything is ok now.
i installed the gauges this afternoon into evening. but then it wasn't working. thats when i decided to leave a post up in here in the forum about my little problem. unfortunately for me, i had to go out tonight and i had no other choice but to take my car out. it made me feel so different driving without the lights in my gauges working, except for the needles. i was in my friend's house and when i alarmed my car, the lights from my gauges blinked. i was wtf?! but when i drove again, it didn't work until i hit a few bumps and then it turned back off. so while i was at a stop on a streetlight, i played with the wires and it seems to me that the power connection is loose. so tomorrow, i plan on fixing the problem tomorrow.
when i think about it, this was such a stupid problem.
