I am so bummed. I ordered these parts and installed them, wiring them up and soldering per your pics. The dimmer function didn't work. Not sure why. Eyes would come on at 1 million candlelight, twist knob.....nothing happens. Wonder if I got a defective rheostat but I doubt it. Only other thing I can think of is that since I have mine kicking on from the interior light it over-rides the rheostat. Hell if I know. I hate doing electronic crap to my car why don't the damn manufacturers or resellers include a damn dimmer and add $20 to the price? GRRR
