LED gauges
« on: October 15, 2015, 07:55:26 PM »
So I bought some LED gauges for my truck. They're nice during the day. But at night, drowning holy crap they are bright. I hooked the wire to my trucks factory dimmer switch. No effect. So... is there some of controller to dim LED lights?

cell phones have screen savers that peel off and are a shade darker. try one and see what it does for it. i have 3 gauges on my pillar and installed a switch to turn off at night for this reason and mine dim they just don't dim that much. 9v min i believe vs 12 volts. or a piece of window tint
