HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.
Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin
For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.
When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

Where is the easiest place to pull power from to power auxiliary gauges? Want them to light up when headlights are switched on.

Well, then you need to wire your gauge lighting thru the headlight switch circuit.

Since your instrument lights should come on when the headlights turn on, I would suggest taping one of the lights close to your gauges. Although the instrument lights usually use a small AWG wire, your additional lights shouldn't require much additional current unless your gauges have several light bulbs (incandescent not LED). If your gauges use LED lighting, you'll have negligible current draw added to your circuit. Your best test is to make a temporary connection and turn on the lights. Your gauge lights should come on, and your instrument lights should still be as bright as they usually are. If the instrument lights get dim, you'll know you added too much and will need to look for another connection.

On 86 and newer 944's, there's a light right behind the center ac vent. I've tapped into it on several different cars for gauge light power. Never had any issues with that.
