Series or Parallel

just got some autogauge gauges (Oil, water, amp) What is the best way to wire the backround lighting for them? Series or parallel. I'm thinking parallel. Any ideas?

Connect all the lights in parallel
sounds good. Also, how many dash light sources should i splice into. All to one, or find 3 different dash light sources?
Use as many original voltage sources as you can - the wiring and wiring routing is already done for you!
Tie it to the lamps circuit.
John is right. The headlight switch has a dimmer circuit for the dash lights. You only need to connect into the vehicle a single time to get the variable voltage feed needed. Then connect that one wire to all three of your background bulbs. There is usually a fuse just for this and frequently there is a connector you can connect to on the fuse box but I am not sure about your year in particular.
thanks for all the replies!
