AutoMeter LED Lighting Dimmer installation
I'm hoping to get some wiring help. I bought a truck that already had the AutoMeter Cobalt gauges installed in it. They are too bright, so I bought the AutoMeter LED Lighting Dimmer. I'm trying to install it right now, and I can't seem to get it to work. There are only 3 wires. I grounded the black, spliced the white with all of the white wires coming from the gauges after the 3 were spliced into 1, and I tried hooking the violet wire to the Light blue/Red stripe wire as a 12v switched source. I feel like it's the violet wire I am not hooking up to the correct wire.
The instructions give two options for the Violet wire: Option 1: If the vehicle has a standard dimmer control (a simple rheostat), connect the violet wire to the vehicles standard dimmer control. (This is what I was hoping to do by connecting to the 12V source. I also tried the Light Blue/red stripe wire in the customer access wires.)
Option 2: Connect the violet wire to a switched 12V source.
Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance.
