You will have to pull your dash bezel off of from your insturment cluster and the ignition switch I located behind your light switch and dimmer. It has been a fwe years since I did mine but I remember thats where I tied into for power and also the dimmer so I can control my gauges with my stock gauges.

Easiest place is in the fuse area just beside the dash on the drivers side. Check fuse 5 and 10. Should be IGN and Dimmer. Use a mini fuse tap and run to the top of the fuse. This will fuse protect your gauge power and lights.

If you install a aftermarket stereo you'll most likely install a adapter for the wiring. Then you'll have a extra lead present for the panel lighting. Also you can tap for keyed +12V from there to without tapping the fuses...

Take your test Lt in hand (with your coffee ) Pull the little panel off Left side of dash above E brake.
Turn IGN on find ones that Lt your test LT. Turn power off find ones that do not Lt your test LT . I Guess you could skip the 1st step..LOL But there are several there that will work, Go dwn to your favorite parts store buy a piggy back fuse to plug in and that's it !
