Good job on finding those wires. Don't know about the CE light...try a code scanner and run it? To get the radio out just get a coat hanger cut it up into little peices and stick it in the four holes and jiggle it around until it pulls out.
I'm clueless on the CE light. I'd still try to tap into the 12v ignition wire (red I think) for power.
Well dont compliment me yet.. Because My former neighbor (about 46 years old) does my general mechanic work on the car, and he CHEWED ME OUT for "probing around" with the electrical wires.
He said I "should have" tapped into the fuse box directly for power. I didnt know how the H3LL to do that!
Funny how nobody wants to help you (except a few of you) but everybody wants to tell you how you did it wrong after the fact.
Next Wed he is going to install my 275/40's for me, and he DOES have the scanner for the CE light. My battery died, so I just left the negative wire off for now. Maybe that will clear it.
Im sure that the blue/violet tracer wire next to the fogs is fine for the dimmer, and I know my grounds are ok..
So when I go to my mechanics next week, I will have him show me how to rewire the power wire to the fuse box.
I am kinda proud of myself for having done this
I even took my wifes label maker, and labelled every wire in 3 places. I also crimped the circle connectos on each wire to screw on the back of the gauge, and as far as "clean" goes, the only place you see any wires, is about a 1/2" section between the bottom of the pod and the left of it in the door crack.. Everythin else is hidden. I even got the red wire loom for the inside of the hood.
Just hope now that those problems are simple to fix.
Thanks again Green!
