Fitting El Glow Dials...

Recommended Posts

Just read through the instructions and it looks pretty straight forward.

Only thing I'm unsure about is where to get a 12v feed from. It says you must find a 12v supply which comes on when you turn the lights on.

Anyone got any ideas??

Jim you can run it from your cig lighter light. But make sure you put a inline fuse on other wise you will end up like me needing anew inverter :crybaby:

You cant use the lighter if your going to use it as your start button.

Can you? :huh:

erm...... dunno.

The power etc from the start button comes from the ignition side of the car as opposed to where the lighter is.... I think

just checked... all the wired for the starter come from the ignition harness.

Come on matey, it ain't that hard to find a live feed that comes on when you turn your lights on init. Just tap into the feed from the dash/gauge power circuit init. Find the live wire that comes live when you turn the lights on. Theres only one!!

nearly there !!

Cheers for the help roytoner.

Got it wired in... tested the dials, they work fine.

The inverter makes loud bluddy noises though!!! ... different pitched buzzing depending on what colour etc.

Now I just have to secure the dials in place ( glue! ), then put the car back together before it gets dark.

Glue :help:

lol....

having the lights in or out didn't seem to make any difference mate. Probably would though if you removed the original dials first. I just stuck these over the originals.
