I would not hook up an ammeter Dave, I would do a voltmeter, much easier, much safer.

The instructions for the voltmeter will tell you that Dave. Pretty simple. Use one of the pink fused 12v ignition wires from the dash harness (console connection or cluster connection) to the positive side of the gauge, and chassis ground to the negative side. It's really that simple, honest. There is actually instructions in your cluster kit also.

No worries. Yep, they are in the cluster instructions. We show a generic hook up. It's really simple to be honest with you. You won't have any problem.
