I need help, I'm installing hsv ve gauges and I can't seem to get the lights to turn off. Going by car modded tap into the body module but I can't do that. It's too hard basket. Is there a easier way?

Illumination wire I connected it to body module pin 24 brown plug.

When gm LAN + wire is disconnected, the lights for the gauges work like they should on and off etc. but when I connect the gm LAN + wire the lights won't turn off, they stay on even if I turn the headlights off.

Bottom right hand side under head unit.youll see the white plug.thats for the smokers pack.sounds like your gauges are getting a 12v+constant power source from some where else.
