Take the blue wire for plus or the yellow one for turning on the ilumination via ignition.

Thanks for the replies to this some time ago, I still have not sorted it, just for clarity the dials in question can been seen in the jpg attached, does this change any of the advice or just stick, trouble is I know what I am like and if there is wrong wire to connect to a wrong wire ....yup you guessed it i will do it and hear a bang!!

Thanks,
Andrew

Not sure if you will have solved this by now - I've identical gauges for my Yam & the lights are always on ( not sure if that is due to how its wired though) . You just dont see them in the daylight. Is it easy to check on the boat under a thick blanket over the console ? - you will look a little odd , but not as odd as when they dont work at night ! I'll have a look on mine to see how they are wired up & let you know.

I have older multifunctions on a 2000 F115 and the solid yellow wire is for the "Lamps". I ran mine (solid yellow) to the "Running Lights Switch, the gauges light only when the running lights are on.

Hope this helps.

Cool. I didn't remember to look last night (too much beer.)

FWIW, I have mine controlled by the same switch that controls the nav side lights. I figure I don't need the illumination if I'm on the hook (anchor light on); only when I'm actually moving (side lights on.)

My engine tilt indicator stopped working after taking it into a shop to have the cable from the engine to the gauge replaced to fix something else. (The shop cocked up other stuff so bad I don't want to take the boat back to them to fix the problem.)

My guess is there is a fault in the circuit, I tested the sender at the engine and it is functioning. I don't have a wiring diagram so was having trouble tracing the circuit.

Is the tilt sensor "6" in the diagram? Thanks!
