Hello all, I just installed some white face gauges from into my 89 US spec 325i. They are supposed to glow blue when you turn your instrumetn cluster lights on. Anyway, I spliced the power (red) wire from the kit into the power wire for the actual instrument cluster lights (pin 23 on the white connector going into the back of the instrument cluster) and of course spliced the ground wire into the ground for the cluster lights as well. Well, it works perfectly, except that when I turn the fog lights on, the glow gauges inexplicably turn off. They work in every other mode, whether the car is running or not, and it even works with fogs and high beams on. They only way it doesnt work is low beams and fogs on. It makes no sense? Can anyone perhaps gove me any insight? Thanks.
