Default HELP. I don 't know what wire to tap for my autometer boost gauge

I have everything setup and ready to rock. Boost is reading correctly. I just don't know what wires to tap into for the electrical side of it. I need to know a 12V and a ground..

Please help!!

thanks

Todd

Find a bare metal piece in the dash for ground... For the 12V+ pick a fuse that is on when the ignition is on. Radio, ACC, ignition, etc. You can more or less jam it in the fuse hole and plug the fuse on top of it.

there is a harness that comes out of the radio that is made to have the guages hooked to. It has positive and negative outputs. It doesn't matter how you hook it up, but if you use the radio wiring harness, you will be able to dim your guages with the dimmer switch. if you find bare metal for your ground it won't allow you to dim and the light will be on full blast all the time. i like the ability to dim my gauges along with my guage cluster and radio.
Just my 2 cents
