Flickering Glo-Gauges

Ive got a nice set of glo-gauges that i installed in the good ol foci, and now they flicker like like no other. I've notice it most when the car idles, i apply the brake, the heat fan is on 1-3 (not 4), and sometimes when ever it feels. I have it hooked it up to the harness that illuminates the HVAC controlls.

My only guess is that its a draw issue?

DOes anyone know a better place to connect them to?

yeah, but didnt you have to then use a switch to turn them on and off? Im thinking on hooking them up to the wire that fed the bulbs for the gauges... since those arent being use anymore, i figure the draw wouldnt be as bad... maybe then they wont flicker...? Im almost thinking on running a wire all the way to like the damn license plate lights as those would probably wont have a draw issue... otherwise if i have to switch them it takes away from the nice clean mod look...
