Im about to install an Auto Meter tach. I know where the tach signal and battery lead go to, but I was curious where those of you that have done this hooked the illumination wire and the ignition source wires to? Any pics or diagrams would be helpful.

Blue wire with the red tracer is interior dash illumination and can be dimmed with the factory dimmer switch. The places to tap into this wire are:

Pull out the headlight switch and put an in-line wire tap on wire. (recommended for A-pillar gages)

Pull out HVAC controls. Put an in-line wire tap on wire going to HVAC control harness connector (recommended for passanger side Tach pods, tachs, aux gages in coin tray, and vent gages)

Cigarette ligher. There's a single blue wire with red tracer that goes to the ash tray/cigarette lighter that could be used for switch panels/rocker switches in this area.

Hope this helps you out and good luck.

Is that just for the lights? If so, what about the ignition wire?
