What is a good connection to grab power from the parking lights for the powered indiglo guages? I am looking at my wiring schematic and I have a lead called "Illumination" in the harness that connects to the cluster but I am not sure if that is appropriate. The instructions specifically say not to connect these to the dimmer.

Any thoughts?

doesnt the left harness on stock gauges control the function and then the other one controls the lighting?..my gauges moved when the left one was plugged in..but wasnt lit up..so then i re-connected the right harness a lot better then it light up..can you use that?..

well first off the guages are the same for '94 -'95 - '96 / '97 changes, also you can sometimes find the indiglo under the category of "94-95 cougar", the same

You need to contact Scott Hrbacek if you want some custom wfg's for your bird. His gauges are as good as any name brand and what cost you as much here is the link: http://www.geocities.com/slhrbacek/95Home.html

Scott made my gauges. He did a good job, but the numbers are slightly blurry. Just watch whem you put them on to NOT use too much 3M sticky spray (if you choose to use it), it'll affect the lighting on the gauges. Oh yeah, don't drop your screws down into the steering column, it's a beast trying to find them!

Naw, don't blame you. :cool:

I like just enough light on them to see them clearly. I hate really bright gage faces ... especially at night. The darker the gages are (while still allowing me to clearly see them), the brighter the rest of the world "out there" is ...
... and the world "out there" has things that can hurt me if I hit them at speed ...
... things like bears, deer, cows, horses, pot holes, sink holes, unmarked roadway edges, downed trees, etc that aren't lit ...
... not to mention the things with lights on them ... like cars and trucks.

Bright dash lighting causes the eyes to restrict a little and the world "out there" doesn't seem as bright then, and it's easier to miss important stuff.




Yeah, Dec 05? Wow, :rolleyes: I hadn't looked at the dates. :D

I got some of Scotts white face gauges, they look great and I dont have them on the car yet! Im going to have to try to do it myself but the instructions seem pretty straight forward. Im going for the driving lights and brighter bulbs too, have the wiring harness just need the bulbs.

Just unplug the LED strips socket and turn the plug 180 degrees and plug it back in. That should fix it.
