Use the wiring for the factory clock.

Or if you into electrical wiring, run a dedicated power line from the battery, and use a relay with the clock being the igniton trigger to turn the power onto the gauges. Don't forget to put an inline fuse for each gauge incase you short things out later. Don't wanna blow those expensive gauges.

"stays on" or "say's on" (no clue what that is). Perhaps you hooked it up to the wrong source.

The clock has always on, ign, and light. You need to hook it up to ign if you want it to come on when the key is in.

opps I meant to say that it "stays" on. I used the big red wire on the clock. Can you tell which wire on the clock I need please? Thanks
