Re: wiring up light in boost gauge.

If ya need a switchable one(gauge black when no power-Defi style) an you`ve wired as far as cigarette lighter already just find the swichable live to your head unit join into that.(not sure why cigarette lighter aint working though.)

I only needed illumination for when dark so just wired off illumination on the fog or driving light switch,just found which wire were live when i turned sidelights on/no power with sidelights off on the plug off the fog/driving lights switch an used that.
Best sealant used to date- Fourstar ultimate paint protection *Now discontinued* Rebranded as sonus SFX4 paint sealant-Try some ya wont be dissapointed.
