Alright, so I am trying to hook the wires up on my clinometer, and I want to hook the power wire up to something that controls the dash lights. Someone recommended the wire in the radio harness that controls the dimmer. Only problem is, I can't figure out which wire does that. I have a test probe, which is just lighting up. I have isolated which side of the harness controls the power, but no clue which one is the light-controlling wire. Can anyone offer a little assistance? That would be great. Thanks!

I decided to try to run the power wire to the parking lights. That way I can control it being on and off. I researched and found out that the parking light wire is blue w/red stripe. However, when I grounded it and wired the power wire and parking lamp wire together, nothing. Not sure what I am doing wrong, but it is getting the best of me right now. I am pretty sure that it is something that I am doing, rather than the clino being messed up. I just have to figure out what exactly it is that I am doing wrong.

If you need a power source that turns on with the car, why don't you tap into the 12 volt outlet power? Not sure what exactly you're trying to hook up but kind of confused why you'd want power only when your parking lights are on. I'd think that you'd want poswer when you turn the car on.

I am running the power lights on my clinometer that I installed. I really don't want the light to it on all the time, for I don't want to run the risk of it burning out or something. Plus, if it is daytime, I can see it, so I don't need the lights to it. I only need it on when it is dark and can't see, therefore, I wanted to run it to my parking lights, which are on at night.
