More Info On Gauges

Got my new A-pillar gauge pod and was wondering how would fuse the 3 12v light sources to the dimmer? Where would be the best place for the 3 grounds also? I'm looking for a clean install, no Mickey Mouse mumbo-jumbo!

On mine, I grabbed the switched light power directly off the lightswitch lead. I pulled the headlight switch assy. out of the dash and tapped it there. But you can grab it from a number of different places. For a good ground, look under the steering column to the right side , there is a brace there with other grounds already on it, you cant miss it. You can use a self tapper and ring term. and make a new ground, or splice there. Good luck with your install!

When I installed three gauges in my Mustang, I tied all three grounds together before running just one wire down the a-pilar for the ground. As the above said, I tapped into my headlight switch as well. Will be doing the same install on the F250 in the coming weeks.

Thanks for the plugs, guys! This Big Hoss bundle install's going slowly, but surely and the AutoMeter install's coming very soon, so this info is greatly appreciated!
