volt gauge?'s

picked up a digital volt gauge and was wondering what everyone was using for ignition hot source voltage. Was thinking of using headlight switch wires for source and also for the light in the gauge that way gauge only lights up when headlights are on. Anyone see a problem with this? Also anyone know what the color wires headlight switch do what? Hope this makes sense to someone

that sounds about right. If I remember right it is the brown wire that is keyed 12v power.

Tap off the ignition circut behind the key and you can use the headlight wire for the ligthing up the guage, you want true voltage.
