- Mustang Gauge Inserts Installation Guide
$44.99FREE Shipping on orders over $49
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m here with a couple of different ways to trick out the interior of any Mustang, thanks to these white face reverse glow gauge inserts and matching white face A/C gauge inserts, fitting all 94-04 Mustangs. These white face gauge inserts, are reminiscent of the white gauges found in the 94 and up Cobras. Of course the styling is a little more radical especially at night when the reverse glow feature comes into play. The term reverse glow refers to the actual face of the gauge themselves, as you can see here during the day the gauges are bright white, but at night or whenever your headlights are on, the white part remains dark but the numbers and letters glow in a very cool and easily readable blue light. You may think these inserts are solely for the Mustang owner out there who enjoys a more aftermarket type of look, but that’s not always the case, in fact, many of our customers have told us how much they enjoy these white face gauges, because they’re easier to read during the day, but if you’re having difficulty seeing that red needle on the black background, like in your factory cluster, then these inserts may be for you. To match the look of these overlays we’re also featuring this matching white A/C control insert as well, available separately. A few nice things about this piece, for one, it’s easy on your wallet, it’s also a piece of cake to install in about 15 minutes, and it really completes the look when compared to these white face gauge overlays. In addition to the overlays you’ll find a dimmer switch and 12V power source needed for the install. Speaking of the install, you’ll want to make sure you have a T-15 torx tool, some basic hand tools, and either a soldering iron or quick splice connectors or bite connectors, just depending on how you prefer to wire everything up. Since you will have to disassemble your cluster slightly and do some minor wiring, we’re going to call this one an hour from start to finish. These white face glow gauge and A/C inserts offer some very unique styling at night and improved visibility during the day for a price that’s sure to fit into anyone’s budget, be sure to check them out right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Great overall product. It lights up nicely just like in the picture. Wires were too short so I had to connect longer wires. I reccomend buying this.Helpful (0)

Cool but gauges now don’t work
It looks really cool but the circle cut outs are not large enough, making the fit too tight to where some of the needles on the gauges barely move. I cannot tell how much gas I have, it stays at 1/4 tank even when I fill up. I really like how it looks so I’m a bit sad. It was a little challenging to install.Helpful (0)

It happened to come in a reasonable time but as soon as I took it out the box and had my mechanic test it to make sure the connectivity and circuits within work, turns out they Came to me broken. Customer service sucks because they absolutely refused to accept the return of the item.Helpful (3)

The stock gauges are pretty boring in the daytime and nighttime. These gauges are wayyyy better. Obviously they look amazing at night but they look great during the day too. They really stand out and make driving more fun in my opinion. They are brighter in person than they are in picture/video. Installing them is easy. The only tricky part is the wiring. The instructions show you where to connect the positive wire but not the negative wire, it just says connect the negative wire to the black wire, even though there are two black wires (these are where the “rear def” button is). I connected the negative to the smaller black wire and it worked. Overall, these gauges are worth the money.Helpful (5)

Big visual help.
The difference is immeasurable, I recommend to all with older Mustangs.Helpful (3)
KM/H ? Hey, Ive noticed that the gauges are in MPH (obviously because you're based out of the US) but does this come in KM/H? I live in Canada and really want to get this for my mustang.
This gauge insert has the MPH, show in blue on the outer track, as well as km/h, shown in red on the inner track and shows up to 180 km/h. Hope this helps!
dimmer knob what do you do with the little knob? i cant use my stock dimmer knob?
The small dimmer knob that comes with the kit is to adjust the brightness of your new gauges. if you follow all the steps without doing some modifications your stock dimmer knob will dim your gauge needles and temp. control lights.. etc. the new small dimmer knob can be placed anywhere. ive seen many people drill holes in the dash or under the stearing wheel and placing it there... or simply taping it somewhere. it can be spliced into your stock dimmer knob so that the stock knob will control all the lights in your gauges and rest of interior etc.
Will these white face bushes fit my 2002 v6. Mustang does the glad or plastic facing come with these bushes if not I need this too mine has a crack in it
The White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert will work with all 1999-2004 V6 Mustangs. This will include the gauge faces only and will not include the lens or needles.
What is the warranty on this? I installed it less than a year ago and after about 5 minutes of driving with the lights on, the illumination goes out but the needles stay lit.
The White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert would not carry a warranty, however, please give us a call in and we can see what we can do for you.
Does this work with the dimmer in the turn signal switch arm?
Yes, this product will work with dimmer just like your factory one did.
In some cases it was possible for these Mustangs to receive different color wiring than intended when originally being manufactured in the factory, or even just mix up which color went where. So, in some rare cases where you are to follow a wiring diagram, the colors the diagram says you should have may not actually line up with what you actually have. Something like a volt meter or a shop that specializes in electronics may be necessary to identify exactly what you are working with. Ultimately, if you receive a product that is not working as designed or advertised, please contact our customer service for appropriate assistance.
You would still have the check engine light show up with this gauge insert.
Please contact us at 1 (888) 318-4347 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
The switch provided with this gauge insert allows you to adjust the brightness of the glow manually. Typically this is tucked behind with the insert itself, so the idea would be to find a solid brightness your comfortable with before getting that lens installed back and wrapping the project up.
Unfortunately, we do not carry the transformer separately from the kit.
The White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert will have built in illumination for the gauges themselves, but will utilize the factory illumination for all of the warning lights, such as the check engine light, brake warning light/parking brake light.
To install the White Face Reverse Glow Gauge Insert (99-04 V6) you will not need to remove the steering wheel. You would need to remove the dash panel to expose the gauge cluster, no need to go through all the extra work to remove the wheel! Hope this helps out!
The version for the GT model is a different product. Different products will have different prices depending on their size, material that they are made of, their use, and other factors.
