JVC dimmer

What wire in the 2003 harness needs to be connected to my JVC to dim the display when the lights are on? I used the plug in from Best Buy that plugged into the Ford harness, then you connect your speakers, power etc to the deck pigtail. Everything works fine except the auto dimmer control.

Nobody knows what wires to connect to make your aftermarket deck illuminate with your dash,

To the best of my knowledge it will be an orange or orange w/white stripe wire coming from the best buy adapter harness. The adapter harnesses usually match color for color to the aftermarket radio pigtail.

All of the wires were connected, even wired in an amp, but no dimmer when the lights come on. The instructions were just this side of useless.

This whole thing probably has to do with the fact that this JVC uses day, night, and auto.

He is using an aftermarket harness that should use the standardized color code. In other words the Lt. Blue/red wire in the ford plug should connect to an orange wire in the best buy plug which will get spliced to the orange wire of the JVC head unit. Hope that makes sense.

Everything hooked up, the lights come on, but they don't dim with the headlights. I'll double check that said wires from the JVC go to the correct wire in the plug and play harness.

Either way, I appreciate the inputs, I'll get to it this weekend.
