    Stereo illumination wire.

    I have a 2010 unlimited rubicon just had a stereo installed. When I turn on my headlights at night my stereo does not dim. Do our jk's not have an illumination wire that plugs into the head unit for this function.

    There is definitely an illumination circuit. Sounds like they were too lazy to connect it

    There definitely is an illumination circuit as stated above. Also some head units have illumination function in the settings. Check the radio as well.

    Thanks for the 12volt.com reference!! It tells me that the radio illumination is on the can bus. So how can I get my deck to dim when I turn on my headlights?

“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.
