I'm not sure if you have a facelift 99, or if the facelift 99s had the illuminated vent controls but if you do then the method outlined here will work.

The installation manual for AWE Tuning's gauge will also help you.

You can find a parking light wire behind the kick panel on either side of the car. Only down side of doing it this way is that you wont be able to dim the gauge light.

I used the ciggarette lighter. But i used the little that light ring that glows up around it when you turn the lights on so it will work only when they are on.
