Default help...wiring autometer lunar series boost and egt gauge for lighting

anyone done this yet...ok, ive tested the gauges hooked up directly to the battery and they lit up...i did this b/c when i had them installed i couldnt get them to light up by any of the methods i found on this forum...i tried the 2pt connector behind the cd player...i tried the illumination fuse to the left of the steering column while it was grounded to the bolt the holds the a-pillar bracket...these did not work...i made sure i had the lights on each time and even tried every position you can put the lights in...nothin happened...anyone have any suggestions...the autometer lunar series gauges have a 12v pos wire and a ground for lighting purposes...

Any help is greatly appreciated...(i know ive posted this in other sections, but i havent got an answer that works yet...sorry)

Try the clock. Pul it up, and read the labels on the back. Tap wires that are neccesary. Not too difficult

Run the wire to the fuse box and jump it off the side after the fuse to protect the circuit. Just push the wire in the slot and insert the fuse back into place. The fuse will hold the wire from coming loose.

yup, remember that the dimmer is controller at the negative side of the current. This makes the installation a bit trickier. Therefore installing the A/F lunar gauge will be even more dificult since it shares the light with the power for the actual gauge.
