Pull out your dimmer switch, the power source is the red wire....might not be red in all applications, but the one other than the black one should do.

peace.

yeah, there are to wires that are attached to the speed glo itself, but i ground the black wire and then when do i put the red power supply wire? It says in the instructions to use the power source for your dash dimmer switch, (so the plug i was talking about is the wires behind the dash connected to the dimmer switches) so really my question is where do i put the red power wire? Do i pull out the red wire from behind from the dimmer swtich and power the speed glo power wire in its place?

PLEASE HELP, Kurt

Okay... I did some indiglo needles for a friend a while ago, and if this is anything like those, if you want to have the gauges to dim w/ the dash lights, hook them up to a light that dims w/ the dimmer (like a backlight for the gauges). What I did was strip the wire and stick it under the positive side on the light, then push the light back in (light holds the wire in place). Since the backlights dim w/ the dimmer switch, so will your gauges. Then of course connect the ground wire to ground.
