And don't know whether to s/charge, turbo or N/a??
I dont know the answer, but was wondering if anyone could help me with a similar problem. How to mount and wire up an Autometer Monster Taco with shift light to an EB Falcon. I want to mount it on the A pillar, how is it done, and also the wiring. Thanks guys
Mounting it is pretty straight forward. Just remove the windscreen heater vent (an allen head screw on both sides) then carefully unclamp the A-pillar trim. Then follow the manufacturer's mounting instructions to mount it on to the plastic.
Is there any wiring info? I'm pretty sure all it would be is a park lamp signal, earth, acc +ve and a tacho signal wire.
I bought the Tacho off a mate, so i had no wiring diagrams. Is it illegal to mount it on the A pillar, in the case of a crash, its something you can hit your head on. Thats just something ive heard. So if i have to peel away the trim, does that mean it has to be cut around where it is mounted?
um why have you got an auto meter techo when your car as standard has a techo.
Thats right it's next to the speed output thing.
Now take it back and go get a unifilter or something that will actully do something for your car.
There is a pink diagnostic plug that also doubles as an out put for a techo.
You should be able to simply run a positive and a negative from either the battery or an ignition on wire to the techo and then a wire from that pink plug (up near the brake booster)
Breathe! It's only the internet....
