Exclamation Help glo gauge problem

OK so installed the aftermarket BEM gauges I bought installed them did all the wiring correct but now they won't turn off. They have these lights on them but they won't turn oFF!!!!! I can put it in low power no problem, but I dont know if it will waste my battery charge.

Re: Help glo gauge problem

where are you powering them from? The power source you are using is the wrong one probably, you used an all time hot vs a only key hot power source.

Re: Help glo gauge problem

I wired the red(positive) to the grey headlight wire which is the one the instructions in Americanmuscle told me to do. theres a button to dim it which i can press to dim it to almost off (very low dim) im not sure if leaving it like this would be ok.

Well not to sound to harsh but AM is WRONG in your case you need to wire the positive to the BROWN wire that is in the switch. If you have a test light test the wire before you hook it up but it should go to the wire that is hot when you turn the headlights on.

Re: Help glo gauge problem

Well if it stopped working already than something is wrong with the product. But the brown wire from your light switch is your parking light wire, witch would turn on your gauges when you turn on your parking lights.

well with the red wire connected to the grey wire the light from the dashboard itself turns on but not the glo.
