    Use the wires from the clock. All 4 wires are there and labeled on the back of the clock itself.

    You will not be able to get the gauges to dim with the dash illumination. They will only be either on or off. Subaru uses both a positive and a negative illumination wires and adjusts the negative wire voltage to control illumination. If you were to connect to the negative illumination wire the gauges would dim but it would be opposite the dash illumination.

    If you use the 4 clock wires like I said above, you will have all the correct wires in one place.
