    Generally its an orange/greystripe in the stereo harness that needs to be connected. However some stereos have to be set up to dim when the headlights are turned on
    JVC for instance has a menu setting for dimming the stereo at night.

    Well it's my understanding now that it's a signal from the computer that dimmed the factory head unit. The new head unit is a jvc. There is a way dim dim the head unit by the stereo but it also has an automatic function that works with the headlights. There has got to be a different avenue to take besides a signal from the computer

    I really don’t think there is. Either manually from the stereo or dim automatically when everything else dims .

    Stereo illumination wire.

    If your harness adapter didn’t come with an illumination wire
    Tap the wire from the headlight switch.

About us
“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.
