    Ignition and Dash Illumination wires - Need help finding them

    I am installing an ARB Twin Air compressor and need to pickup an ignition wire and a dash illumination wire from under the dash somewhere.

    Does anyone have experience with locating those two wires? Thanks in advance!

    I got my switched power from the 12v accessory plug (on right-only one I have) and the dash light from the power mirror control. Don't remember what color wire but you can find it with a test light.

    I shouldn't need a relay. The ARB came with a switch and a wiring harness. I just have to tie into the ignition and dash lights with the supplied harness

    That sounds like a good place to tie in. I'll take a look in the am.

    Just curious, do you have two outlets?
    The power mirrors might be the difference. I would like to add another outlet, maybe on the back of the console so the kids could use it on trips.

    (Sorry for the threadjack)

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
