Dash illumination wire
I need a little help if possible and sorry ahead of time for the long post.
I installed a couple of gauges this weekend and I am having problems finding the dash illumination wire. The previous owner had some sort of gauge/monitor so there was already a few taps to use at the grey connector.
However, none of them vary when I move the dash lighting up or down. The instructions from Diesel Manor are great, but are for a 2003. The connector on my 2005 is different. It still has a solid yellow at the 2nd from the left on the top, but it is a constant 12v when ignition is on.
I have heard you can tap in behind the dimmer switch, but am hesitant to do so since there are already taps in place if I can just fine the right one. My problem is that none of them change when using the dimmer.
