I've read that the dimmer is also run off the CANBUS, though that may only be on the Focus. For those of us who want to run dimmable gauges, for example, which wire would that be?

I'll see what I can get. I'll get to this Thursday cause I'm off tomorrow.

It is in fact controlled by the BCM. No way to integrate to factory system. Maybe run a separate potentiometer?

Rude!!!!!!

Thanks for the info. I may ask more questions when I start installing in case there's a workaround, but I don't have the wiring diagram in front of me.

If anybody needs a reference pic, here's RAP.


I'm working on getting a remote start to work with our cars. There's zero firmware from the major companies, and backdoor methods are proving difficult due to the PTS.
