Very nice thank you! Ive been looking for a boost gauge lately and Ive come across a few DIY's but they are not as complete as Id like them to be. Yours has a lot of very clear pictures with the complete instructions. Thanks again.

Hey, so I know the brown wire on the headlight switch is a ground. Is there a wire on there that is just acc power? Not contingent on if the headlights are on or not?

I followed the directions newsouth had.. and mine lights up all the time regardless of if lights are on or not.. now sure its possible i tapped the wrong wire.. but i dont think i did.

(Car has to be on for it to light up.. but i dont need to turn the headlights on)

Okay, cool thats what I was wondering.

I think the grey wire on the switch is for the dimmer. I think you tap the purple/black striped wire for the power then.

Thanks!

I ended up tapping the power into the fusebox using an add-a-fuse cable. Tapped into the 12V electronics fuse.

Grounded it using the brown headlight switch wire though.

Your pictures helped, thanks.

Just installed one of these this weekend, thank you for the write up and pictures, especially not being able to use the rubber band to hold the gauge in. Thank you!
