Innovate MTX L Gauge Install...


Getting ready to install my Innovate MTX L wideband and MTX boost gauge. It has a white wire which in the Headlight power wire. Instructions say DO NOT attach this wire to the dinner wire. Attach ONLY to the head light wire. This gauge has an auto dim feature. So my questions are. Is the a headlight power wire behind the headlight switch? Even if there is or not I need to the color of the wire? If not behind the headlight switch where can I tap into it?

Thanks,
Nick

this is something you can find with a search. sorry if i knew i would tell you.

you could also use a multimeter and figure it out by finding which wire has power going into the light switch. you could also just put an add-a-fuse in the fuse box. this would give the gauge it's own fuse

i used search and couldnt find anything. I am going to do an add a fuse for the power to the gauge. but this is for dimming the gauge. it has auto dim so this feature only needs power when the head lights are on.

Read this, I think it may help. You are basically wanting to wire the boost gauge into the headlight switch right? I wired my boost gauge right into the wires coming out of the headlight switch, mine was a blue/white wire but yours may be diff because its newer. The wideband needs to be wired into a source that powers only with ignition on.

gauges...some help for a member - Ford Mustang Forums

You need to splice into the tan w/ white stripe wire that is located in pin #9 of the headlight switch.

Shelbydog - For the actual power up for the gauge I am doing a add a fuse to a switched power source in my passenger side fuse panel for my switched power. This id for the auto dimming feature.

Fuel - Thanks I will use that wire, Are you using the same gauges?

if you need the wire that is only hot when the lights come on just use the multi meter to find which one is that wire. you can use a paperclip opened up as a probe so you can get to the wire connection easier.

I am using an Innovate LC-1 wideband and autometer cobalt digital boost/vac gauge. Both of my gauges also need a constant voltage signal for the dim feature and directly state to not hook up to the dimmer wire.

Here is a pic of my guages with the headlights on(in dim mode)...
