    Backlight Boost Gauge Question....

    I am so confused on how to connect the wires for the backlight of my autometer boost gauge. I have searched but couldnt find any info. Is there another post someone can refer me too or can someone explain everything Id need to go about doing this? I know I need to get some wiring at the store but how do I begin making any connections? I would appreciate any kind of info or direction. Thanks in advance.

    The way I installed my back light on my WRX was by connecting it to the ignition source. So everytime the key was turned on, the boost gauge back light came one. Are you asking how to wire it so that when the headlights are turned on, the back light comes on?

    The ignition thing you did would be ok for me. Whatever one is easiest to wire.

    Then wire it off of the clock in the center of your dash, since it turns on with the ignition key. That's where I got power for my gauges. Easy to get to and less wire to run than other places.
