Hi all,

I'm not too cluey when it comes to things that like to zap me:loser:, so i tend to ask first....
And for the die-hards i have searched first....

I am wiring in 2 Speco gauges and fitting them to an autron pillar pod this weekend hopefully and wanted to know which wire to tap in to to make the gauges light up when i turn on my head lights...

Any help would be sweet, thanks for helping a numpty out....

the easiest wire to tap would be the illumination wire for the radio then, pretty sure it is black but easiest to find with a multimeter, reads as an earth with dash lights off and has 12 volts with dash lights on
