On a 2005 C6 what wire do I need to hook to to get Cobalt boost and fuel gauges to dim (white wire from gauge). Where can I find it and what color is it

The dash light control is the button to the lower left of the dash. To the left of the steering wheel, next to the air vent. You could probably tap into that switch since it controls the dimming of the dash lights.

found it

I found the wire. On my 2005 C6 at the dimmer switch the wire is brown that gets 12 Volts when the headlights are on. Hooked the gauge up and works great. I wonder if I were to use one of the other wires would it dim. :cheers:

Not so

Also the white wire on the gauge just makes it light up. I thougt it would be lit already and when the white wire got 12 Volts the gauge got darker. Not so.

it does make it dim

The brown wire on the dimmer switch hooked to the white wire on the Colbalt gauge allows it to be dimmed. All you have to do is turn the dimmer down and gauge and instruments all get dim. Weeeeeeeeeee: :buhbye:

My dimmer switch on my 06 doesnt do ****. Ive turned it both ways and the dash lights never change, they are either bright with the headlights off or slightly dimmed when the lights come on. I have no control over them and the owners manual says nothing??? WTF???

another aggravaTING BUTTON I found it takes patience( idon't have) and a delicate turning to get them the brightest.
Sort of like touching that special place on a woman.
