Well Ansett has finaaly come through with the goods on my redundancy, and i got an S pak dash 4 my car and all the gauges work perfectly excdept for the tacho. i tried all the dasshes in the shop and none of them worked and he said i might have to add a wire. So does anyone know wich pin to hook it up to and where to run it to?? Also there is a light that stays on it is a box with what looks like a fan in it.
Well to start with, that red light with the box and fan is the coolant low warning light. You need the sensor in your coolant reserve tank for it too work. I removed the globe on my digital dash. Also, the tacho wire can be found in the engine bay near the brake master cylinder.
Its a single pink/blue wire (i think) - run a wire from there into the back of your dash and it will be a-ok :)
Well I ran a wire from the tacho connector to the pink and blue wire in the back of the dash, and at low speeds it cuts the enigne out and the lights fot the dash come on. The engine will stay running at high revs but runs like shit. I spoke to the bloke at the wreckers and he said that I need a s pak computer.
you dont need a different coomputer.
are you sure you have it running to the right connection on the dash ? id say youve put the wire on somewhere it shouldnt be
is the tacho working at all ?
make sure its not the diagnostic output youve grounded
also where exactly did you connect it on the dash ? you run a wire from the tacho connection under the bonnet (the pink and blue wire or something?) to the back of the dash ,i had to solder it to one of the pins.
I put a S pack cluster in my GL and it is easier to give it to an auto-elec and he will wire it up and check all the globs and make sure it all works.
Cost me about $60.
It's easier than ****ing around when your not sure what to do.
I too have brought a S pack instrument cluster but have not yet tried to install it, how many of the instruments have to be wired back to the engine bay? For example oil level gauge and rev counter?
