    I have a 3G (2020) TRD Off Road and am looking to supply power for the light on the Switch for an ARB compressor.
    --The ARB instructions say to find a "dash light supply wire" preferably one that reacts to the lighting level of the instrumentation / dash light dimmer.
    Can anyone tell me which fuse in the under-dash fuse box meets this requirement?

    I have attached a photo of my fuse box label for information.

    Got my multi-meter and figured it out. Using the 7.5A fuse (labeled "IG2") on the left hand side in the photo above.

    A jumper harness I've made a few of that works off the ECT PWR or Auto High Beam switches with a dash light pigtail.

    2nd fuse down on the left column of fuses: 7.5A TAIL. I used this to illuminate switches, when the lights are turned on.

    I don't think any fuse tap will produce a variable lighting level.
