    If you dig into one of the unused connectors behind those dummy plugs you can get dash illumination on that switch too.

    Their are only two terminals left, any Idea as to how they are wired? I assume that one is to 12v source and the other to ground, or looped in series with the on-off portion of the switch. I will try to experiment when I have time, but if any one knows it will save me a lot of time and fuses!!!:confused:
    Thanks.....

    They are for the switch light, and they span the dash illumination circuit (variable voltage) to 12V+ when the dash circuit is on.

    If you wire it the other way (from the variable voltage to ground), the light will dim opposite the rest of the dash.

    Just dig out one of the unused connectors behind those dummy covers. On the end will be two terminals, one that varies with your dash dimmer and the other is 12V+. Connect the light between those two.

    Thanks TocoTurd, That makes sense, I'll try to find the dimming circuit.
