indiglo gauges

does anyone have a pic that shows where i connect the indiglo lights to the headlights. i see the headlight switch but its a big plug that has like 14 wires coming out of it. not sure which one is the power. also, on the gauges i got, i cant tell which one is the ground and which one is the power.....is there a way to tell?? one seems to have a little more insulation than the other so im thinkin that one is power but not sure. any pic would help at all. thanx

I can't help you out, but I'm curious to know where you purchased the gauges, and once you get them installed how you like them, because I am interested in doing this myself.

well i bought them from a private seller for $35 but have no idea who makes them. when you look into them, id say try to find ones that dont have a glossy finish to them cause they tend to glare a bit. but other than that, they look awsome. cant wait to get them lit up

if I remember right, it is the grey/blue wire coming out of the box thing (I may be wrong, but Ill look it up, and if I am wrong, Ill edit)... this will turn on with your head lights and dim with them when you rotate the knob. You can also tap into this ckt at the fuse box, which is a little easier to do, the fuse is the 15 amp one that is furthest towards the rear of the vehicle, and is one of 3 mounted side to side (rather then front to back like most of them are). This option is easier to do as you can use one of those little tap power from the fuse things that you can get.

If you cant figure out which is gnd and power on the guage, you can always 'test' it running short wires by hand from the battery, or any other 12 volt source (assuming your talking about the lights... other wires I would not do this with, but it wont hurt a light to go backwards).

btw I know mustang wiring pretty well after my escapade trying to fix mine, (really, really long story that will make you want to choke the previous owner of my car) so if you have q's feel free to ask me.

Tap into the dark brown wire in the switch. Thats the parking light wire. You can ground the indiglos anywhere on the metal support frames located in the back of the cavity of the dash behind where the cluster sits. Hope that helps...

One thing about the dark brown one... your guages will not dim with your headlights when you turn the dimming knob, but if this is cool with you, it is a good place to do it.

You shouldn't need your stock switches to dim the indiglos. Mine has the 2 button pad, that has one for diming, and one for changing the color.
