    I've recently followed this guide to fit my glowshift gauge, everything's perfect, apart from electrical side, I connected to the switched and unswitched, my gauge lights up when I select the colour I want it isn't saving? I tried switching the two live cables and my gauge then becomes always illuminated? Even when locked? And doesn't dim when I put my lights on? Anyone know the problem?
    Thanks

    Please take note the wiring maybe slightly different!

    I put gauges in for haze the other day and his illumination feed was the yellow and grey wire on the light switch block.. Just in case you struggle with it

    How are people splicing the wires - just using scotchloks?

    As I have the pin removal tool for electrical connectors I was planning on using a new pin and connecting the new wires that way - but for the life of me cannot find where to buy new pins

    Sorry to revive an old post, but I've been reading through and my digital boost gauge doesn't have a yellow wire. I've wired the black to brown and red to grey/blue. The gauge[​IMG][​IMG] turns on when ignition is on, but off when car is on.

    Do I need to bridge the grey/blue over to the fat red wire or is that a bad idea?

    Problem I'm having is my green and white wire said it was mean to go to the module controller that came with my gauge, this is the instructions I have

    But I'm starting to wonder if the green and white wire go together and then need to be taken to a permanent live
