How do I join the wire to the fuse?

fuse #10 and 4, Does each fuse have a numerical slot? OR are you referencing to fuse with a 4 and 10 on it. Because there are 2 fuses with a 10 on them.

When I installed my EV2's I tapped into the back side of the fuse box for the dimmer and for the power. My gauges dim with the factory gauges and I see no need for the optional Isspro dimmer from my experience. YMMV.

They make a fake fuse that you can run your wire into and then plug into the slot. I think they make one that kind of slides in with existing fuses in place too. Your basic parts store will have them.

Yup... It's called a fuse tap.. It slides over the blade of the fuse, re-install the fuse and it has a blade sticking out by the fuse for you to connect a spade end wire terminal to. By number 4 and 10 fuses I mean the number of the fuse in the interior fuse block. The fuse block cover has the numbers on it and what each fuse is for.

Thank you so much guys, my gauges are gauging!!!
Even though i was driving at night and they started to flicker a couple times, maybe a loose illumination wire?

Loose illumination, power, ground, or they aren't set bright enough. When you dim the LEDs down too much they will start to flicker.

Just the lights flashing or were the gauges turning off and on?

The gauges still had power.
I think you hit it right on the money, w them being on too low of a brightness.
All wires seemes like good connections.

#4 isn't a 12v keyed power ignition source though... Its always on or hot on my 94 F350. Are the 95-97 trucks different ?
