Anyone have knowledge on where I can tap into a dimmer wire to dim my Aeroforce gauge at night?

Thx

Dimmer dial on the dash left of the steering wheel?

I have a 2010 CTS-V. (build date 4-10) I bought the footwell ambient Ambient Lighting front and rear for a 2008-2009 regular CTS. I used this wire for the variable dimming.

It is located on the drivers side fuse panel when you open up the drivers door. Of the 3 connectors you see, it will be the upper left connector which has 20 pins. On my 2010 CTS-V it was pin number 13 and it was white. This is your positive wire. The ground wire I used is located on a bolt under the carpet near your left foot about 6-7 inches up from the door sill.

Just splice into that #13 and ground it somewhere. If I remember correctly, the voltage would vary from 4.5 to whatever batt voltage is.

Put the front wheels up on ramps. Makes whole job easier on your back.
