Weird, I just got my Glowshift gauges last week and everything they included worked perfectly, just needed butt connectors etc for the wiring. So far they are working great, I just wish the LEDs inside them could be turned off during the day.

I don't have Glowshift, but I thought the gauges were wired so that when your turn on the headlights the gauge lights come on and turn off when headlights are off.

Not with glowshift, they use a single power source to supply the gauge and the lights. I am not sure why they did that, but I only paid $170.00 for a pillar and three gauges shipped to my door so I am not complaining. I would have rather had Isspro gauges like I had in my Dodge but simply cannot afford it right now.

Where did you order them from? Maybe that is the difference in parts? Since it sounds like others on here have not had that issue.
