Need a How to guided for Indiglo installation

I know you guys had a how to guided for the installation for indiglo gauges, but I can not find it. Can any one of you hook me up with an installation guided for my 2001 AV6 coupe. I finally got the Siliver gauges that i wanted but i need some help !

Mkay, here's a quick rundown. First you need to remove the plastic cover surrounding your gauge pod. To do this you will need to remove two screws near the top. Once removed just pull the trim toward yourself and it should come out fine. Next you will need to remove two more screws holding in the gauge cluster. Also, there are two golden screws at the bottom (there are two sets, and only two of them actually hold the gauge cluster in place); remove those. Now here's the tricky part. In the back of your gauge cluster are 3 connection ports. Pull out the gauge cluster as much as you can, but don't be too harsh. Maneuver the gauge pod until you see a green cap above the temp and gas display. I just used a long flat head screw-driver to pop the connector out of its port. Just look for the little tab and push it up. Once removed you can maneuver the pod around alot better; just remove the other two connectors from the back and the gauge pod should be free.

Okay, now there should be three of those golden screws that are holding the back of the gauge cluster to the front section of it. Remove those screws and you will be able to take off the plastic covering and bezel. Okay, now before you put on your indiglo gauges I would recommend putting two sided tape on the back of them to aid in the installation, plus it will keep them in place better. All you need to do is slide your gauges over your needles, be careful not to break the needles, and align them correctly. Okay, now that you have your gauge faces in your gonna need to hook up your inverter and switch. I don't know what kinda of switch you have but if its small enough you can do the following: on the drivers side, there is a panel, remove that panel to reach your fuse box. Also pull your coin tray straight out (just give it a good tug and it will come out) and remove the screws holding in the metal plate. Once you do this just pull out that entire plastic piece (includes your vent and cruise control and/ or moonroof controls. Once removed reach in the back of this piece and push down the tabs to push out the popout buttons. I'm assuming that you have one.

Now, all you need to do is put your switch in the place where you just removed the tab and run the black wire to the ground source (the ground source is just a screw in the chassis, near your fuse box). Now you need to run the red cord to a switchable power source; I ran it to the top red wire in the fuse box. Sorry, I can't remember what that power source was called, but its on the very top (I remember seeing a pic somewhere on this site, try doing a search and you should be able to find it) You can either "ram" the red cored into the same slot, OR, you can buy a special connector and connect the two wire together. Back to your gauge cluster: there is a small hole in the back and to the left of the gap where the gauge cluster was, just run your indiglo connectors through there and connect them to your inverter switch. Put everthing back together and bingo...your done! It really isn't that hard. Let me know if you have any questions!

*Sorry this was so long winded!

btw: my SRS light came on during the installation and someone told me I should have disconnected the battery before the installation.

Well, my SRS came on, and it was due to the install of the indiglo gauges; either the removal of the gauge cluster, or the wiring caused the problem....

i got the indiglo gauges, and i got as far as taking out the cluster, taking apart the cluster only to find that the holes on the gauges i got didnt match mine, so I bought red bulb covers instead and put them on the 194 bulbs and put it back together, my srs light never came on, so iono what you did wrong.

Yeah about the SRS light coming on, I think if you turn on the car with the cluster removed it will do that. I've removed my cluster numerous times w/o any problems (never had the key in the ignition while un/installing).

I'm 99.9% sure that your right and I remember my Dad wanting me to turn on my engine in the middle of my install; I didn't think much of it at the time, even with my gauge cluster being removed. So in my case I think your right, in relation to my SRS light.
