    Help wiring autometer gauges

    I have searched everywhere but to no avail. I am going to install autometer ultra lite electric egt, electric oil pressure, and electric oil temperature. I don't need help with wiring the senders. I do need help hooking the gauges up to the electrical system. I am installing these gauges in the center pod where the clock sits now. Should I use the wires that ran to the clock previously? If so what wires are what? What have others used for their power sources? Is there any way I could hook up the gauges so they dim with the rest of the interior? I'm sorry if this has been answered before but I cannot for the life of me find this information posted clearly anywhere (NASIOC, scoobymods).

    for the switch power so that the light comes on when you turn on your headlights, maxima guys tap the positive into the dimmer switch that controls the dash brightness.

    hope this link takes you to the guage and pod install where it has some info, if not then its on the site somewhere

    If you want to use the dimmer, make sure you use the Illumination (+) and the Illumination (-) since the Illumination (-) is not just ground... it actually changes voltage.

    This works ok on mine, but I have an indiglo face on the gauges... it would work better with other lighting.

    I found this wiring diagram. From this I gather I should use the red wire (+) and white with blue wire (-) to power the gauge. I should use the yellow wire (+) and blue wire (-) for the lighting of the gauge. This would allow me to dim the gauges with the rest of the interior lighting. Note the wires I will be tapping will be at the harness. Is this correct? Can anyone varify that I have the wire colors correct?

    edit: Just to clarify, this pic is of the oem gauge pod wiring.
