Hey guys.
My mates just installed a boost gauge on his car, but the instructions to get the gauge to light up on command from the head light switch are very vague.
The gauge has 3 wires, Positive, negative and earth (from memory)
Which wire goes to what so that the light on the gauge come on when either parkers or head lights are selected.

Cheers guys.

I wouldn't hook it to the interior light circuit - you don't really need it to light up when you open the doors.
Hook it to the headlights or dash lights or cigarete lighter light - basically any light that comes on when the headlights are turned on.
