in need of help... installing reverse glow guages

I really want to order the reverse glow gauges for my 04... no shop in the MD area will install. They say "it's to risky and easy for something to break". I'm not very mechanically inclined nor do I have the proper tools.

Just curious does anyone know of shops in MD that will do them or know someone on the side. I don't mind paying as long as they know what they are doing.

You don't need any hi tech tools. Just a torqx and a screw driver I believe is all you need.

I read there some splicing involved if I wanted to wire them to come on with my parking and headlights.

Just a small brown wire is what you will have to splice. Go to American muscle and read their install. Hopefully that will give you a boost in confidence to tackle the job. It's not that hard

I installed my reversed glowes and even wired it to the factory headlight switch and the factory dimmer. It's pretty easy if you use a volt tester and find the ground power etc...

If i remember correctly the instructions say the gray wire...i tried a brown wire and a red/blue wire neither worked. Then i tried the gray wire. Send us a pic of your wire box so we can make sure..

I'm just unsure when they soldering what that means, It sounds like some sort of method to connect the wires. Thanx for the help also

You don't not have to do that you can just splice the wires together like I did and it will work fine, if your set up is the same

Pretty much this is how you solder. Except you're just gonna take off some insulation off the middle of the gray wire(dont cut it in half with the wire stripper like i did; i used a knife and scrapped away) and wrap the end of the wiring gauges red wire around that then solder it. But you could also do what the other guy said and not solder at all.
