    What tube is dimming? Is it a 6" neon tube or the 36" tube? It may be just a bad transformer. Whats the manufacturer of those neon tubes? I have LOTS of neon in my car, so I have lots of experiance with installing/wiring them up.

    make sure you check the ground. If the contacts are not connecting properly...you probably have a bad ground. or theres just something wrong with the neon -scott

    well...it might be a possibility..but if there is something wrong with the transformer...a new ground location will not help. if there is no warranty...just take a peek at the circuitry. if it looks like something is toasted...thats your problem...are all the neons grounded at the same place? if they are..the ground is not the problem....if not..switch out the two 6" neons and see if that helps. -scott
