I purchased the Indiglo-Gauages from ProCarParts. I got the gauges in & seemingly ready to go. I hooked the gauges back up & plugged the faces into the transformer box. I then grounded the white wire. I traced the parking light wire, which I believe to be the red wire. I used a split connector to wire the red wire from the transformer box to the red wire from the parking lights. Problem: nothing happened, the gauges did not light up. Has anyone else tried to hook these up? Did I do something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm dying to get these things to work.

Thanx.later4now!

Are you sure the ground has continuity with the chassis? Just a thought... you could really use a voltmeter... you can get an analog (needle type) for a couple of bucks at autozone or radio shack...

Thanx 4 the responses. I managed to get them done. Splicing into the wires coming from the light knob was unsuccessful. So once I got to work I got out a test light. I ended up tying them into the console dimmer switch, which works ideally. They come on w/ the parking lights, so I would recommend this way. They look great! Some cool color options.

Hey Numb. I noticed you're a DJ.

What does a kick-ass DJ have for a sound system then? (You'd appear to be the one to ask - being in the industry and such).

I will have to see about borrowing a digital camera to get any pix up, hopefully someone can beat me to it. As far as the system goes, I have:

Pioneer DEHP7200 Head Unit. Has 2 cool screen savers (that match the green of the indiglos even)
Pioneer 220w 3-way speakers in the doors
Cerwin Vega 180w 3-way speakers in the deck
Two Rockford Punch XLC 400w Subs in a box, powered by:
Rockford Punch 400 Amp
Dynamat in trunk (and maybe the doors soon)
I also intend to get a second amp & replace the deck tweeters with Infinity, but the system does damn well for now.
