Re: trip meter in el gli

I'm tipping the pre-wiring will be there and it's just a plug in job. Maybe someone from ford tech will be knowledgable on this one.

Re: trip meter in el gli

Yep, pull the clock out and there will either be another plug there (similar to the one that plugs into the clock but with more wires), or a whole stack of wires that just end - if thats the case youll need to add the plug yourself.

Odds are if its got the high series loom though, it will have another plug which makes it a very simple operation of simple pulling out the clock and replacing it with the TC.

Re: trip meter in el gli

All low series falcons, including XR's had clock wiring.
To fit the Trip computer you will need the Fairmont plug and about a foot of the loom.
How do i know?
I wouldnt be without my trip computer.
