Does RAQ have a dimmer/illumination wire at the harness?

Looking for a dimmer wire to connect to a AFR gauge. Normally there is one on the radio wire harness. According to the wire diagram on wkjeeps I don't see anything labeled as either illumination or dimmer.

Anyone know if there is one or if not, where is a good wire to tap into for one?

Re: Does RAQ have a dimmer/illumination wire at the harness?

I have found this wire diagram online as well. It lists the Black/Yellow striped wire is the Illumination wire. The WKjeeps site does not list a Black/Yellow stripe wire. Anyone use it before?


It also says there is an Orange wire used for the Dimmer. Again, WKjeeps does not mention an Orange wire. hmmmm

Moderators,

Please feel free to delete this thread. It appears the MTX-L gauge needs a 12v switched source and not a rheostat voltage.
