tap black to ground
This is a discussion on Wire Tapping for gauge install within the Interior Mods forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; tap black to ground...
Hello friend, Happy New Year!!Originally posted by Richie03
alittle confused about the clock wires.
blue/red (constant (+))
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.
i have a few question would like to ask you. you said:
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.Originally posted by Richie03
Subaru uses a variable ground to dim rather then a variable (+). I know there is a dimmer ground in the stereo wiring harness but not sure what wire it is.
