OK will do ! but does anyone have any idea about the light? I was thinking i may have to connect the power wire to my stereo and ground it off somewhere so it comes on with the stereo ! If there is an easier way please let me know !

The light issue could be one of the following

1. Instrument line (R/GRN wire) not connected

2. The dimmer line (BLU/WH wire) not connected
