Speed sensor wire - 9/88 EA S

Hey guys,

I've been wiring up a trip computer in my EA and have one wire left, the speedo sensor one. I have been told to connect the white wire on the trip computer loom to pin 16 on the lower instrument cluster connector which is supposed to be red.

It isn't red. It's yellow with a red stripe. I connected it anyway, and now the computer shuts itself down when the wire's connected and turns on when it's disconnected.

Me thinks I have the wrong wire. Were they in any other pins or were they another colour?

Cheers,

Sundeep

No it isn't.

If that was the case, I would have had my dash back together last week. The problem is the loom in my car is 2 years older than the the loom on the computer, so they are different.

Anyone else? I have been told pin 10 (blue with red bands) should work but I have tried it very breifly to no avail. Should I test it for longer?

Re: Speed sensor wire - 9/88 EA S

Re: Speed sensor wire - 9/88 EA S

I kind of did that about 2 months ago David!

Thanks anyway though Good to see you've got yours working properly too. I bet you got the instructions to put it to the red one off fordmods eh? They said they'd fix that!

Re: Speed sensor wire - 9/88 EA S

sundeep, try the pin 7 on the 12 pin plug, my white is the first pin on the second row of pin holes. (Dunno if that makes sense.).

Yeah I meant I got it working

Have you got the dimmer working? That's one thing I haven't done, but then again who can be stuffed pulling the dash apart for one wire?!?
