That's the problem I'm having. My clock works, but the light doesn't. I was going to hook it to the illumination circuit. Pink/blue and pink/black.

I have my truck in the garage dissembled ill try that tomorrow..
What i was testing is that. Although the wires are ignition circuit.
They are able to dim cause the gauges make em dim. Otherwise they are just direct current /or ignition..I have tested it with a light and they just on or off. They isnt a circuit that actually dims.
Knowhatimean?

Do I want my clock to dim? Is it even that bright? Oh if you connect it to the pink wires, it will dim.

Well when you turn on the lights.. They turn on and will function with the dimmer ( illumination switch )
When you don't use the lights it's obviously off . But still getting power..( direct current )
Should I try in hook it up ti the dimmer, with a pig tails on the dimmer wires ?
I guess I could. But I was hoping to have it done through the gauge harness..

I simply want it to be on when lights go on, and turn off when I turn off lights.
But when I hook it up to Pin 30 the ignition. I turn on my truck to run on idle it doesnt turn on..
But only works well when i just have the keys turned to acc.

Sure glad I wont have these issues when installing all my stuff in my 87. My 95 V-6 truck wiring harness swap is going to make this a sweet swap.

It needs 12vdc for the illumination. The pink/blue wire serves a different purpose for the clock. You don't need to hook the illumination wire for the clock to pink/blue, the pink/blue should already be connected to pin 40. Hook pin 30 to switched 12vdc and plug everything else up and it should be full bright when the headlights are off and dim when they are on. All the other illumination is OFF normally and only illuminates when the headlights/parking lights are on.

Sounds great...Can you tell me which wire close by in the gauge harness is a 12vdc switched wire?
