I installed 3 defi gauges but for some reason when I brighten the dash with the dimmer the gauges go dim and when I dim the dash the gauges turn bright.. for some reason they are reversed.. i have 2 vls gauges spliced into the same wire but the vls are fine..

I tapped into the dimmer which is a r/y wire.
02 spec v

Anyone know what might be wrong?

One white wire..

I also tapped into the fog lamp and that acually fixed the whole dimmer problem but now they only illuminate when i turn off the fog lamps lol

Thinking of just picking up a seperate dimmer switch..

Interesting. The wiring diagram shows that all are powered directly from the fuse box, then ground is controlled by the dimmer switch. Let me know if you figure it out.

Oh....nvm. I thought when you said dimmer like part of the dimmer lighting....you mean to wire the defi to turn on its lights when you have your lights on right? Yea...you gotta use the parking light/headlight wire.
