put the black(-) wire on a bolt... or something that is grounded to the frame....

and just play around with where to put the red(+) wire.... turn your lights on, and then keep touching the red(+) wire to stuff, and when the inidiglo's come on.... leave the wire there.....

thats what i did!!

very technical advice andrew...haha j/p

i did about the same thing, ghetto rigged it up. grounded the black wire...anywhere, i ended up grounding it at the same place my alarm is grounded because the wire was the pefect length to it. then i connected the red to my headlight wires, then blamo! instant super bright at night gauges.

anyone heard of a circut tester or a test light? JK but get a test light and find which wire powers up when you turn on your accessory lights.

My indeglo guages said spacifically NOT to wire to the factory dimmer switch.. so when using the test light play with the dimmer switch and make sure you are not tapping into the out of the dimmer. YOu want the live untapped feed.

yea.

for my sol it was 5 skrews and 3 clips... but the wiring was the bitchey part cause I didn't want to make any holes in my dash for the dimmer and color change switch.

It's not tough at all... if you know a little about wiring and your gentle

the only thing that is hard is the wiring, but not really hard just time consuming

well, if you have an si, you dont have to worry about it, cuz your needles are illuminated, on other models, which you have, the indiglo is enough to light it up. with reverse indiglo gauges, its quite a bit harder though...dont quite have a solution yet though

i see. . . oh well, i was just wondering. those new reverse ones do look kinda nice. . . don't think i'd spend the money on them though...

Si clusters are real nice, cept they say "Si" on them.
