    black (ground (-)) easy enough.

    pink/blue (illumination) connect for (+) lighting and is on when the driving lights are turned on

    yellow/green (switched (+)) is this the power that is turned on when theignition is turned on?

    Installing a center gauge pod this weekend. Double checking to make sure things go as smoothly as possible.
    Hello friend, Happy New Year!!
    i have a few question would like to ask you. you said:
    Blue/Red:+12V ok
    Black:Ground ok
    Yellow/Green:ACC ignition?
    Pink:Light ok

    DO you mean ACC = Ignition Switch wire?

    which one is the lighting circuit ??

    Behind the radio there is an unused 2pin harness. I believe one wire is purple, the other is orange. IIRC you can use these to dim the bulbs. I dont think it is was ever determined possible to dim the Omori's though. Most (not all) Autometers will dim.
