You might also be able to tap off the instrumentation dimmer switch located to the left of the steering wheel. My gauge doesnt use a dimmer but I think I remember reading other install guides that mentioned the dimmer switch. Another option would be to tap off of the head light fuse in the engine bay fuse box, but it would require a bit more work to route the wiring for that.[/b]
I guess I'm going to go for the dimmer switches.  I looked into this already, but I'm going to have to take some of the lower dash off to get to those switches.  I'm not exactly looking forward to that, but after driving home tonight, the gauge is waaay too bright in the daytime mode..so I have to do something.  Hopefully I can peel that lower dash piece off without breaking anything.  Getting up under there is my least favorite part of the car to work on!   :swearin:

your talking bout pulling the dimmer switch? No need to pull the lower dash panel-

Reach uo behind & squeeze the tabs to release....

I was looking at the back of the DSC switch not to long ago...
