Subject: Lets shift light my '01 M coupe
Shawn Fogg put me onto a shift light module which sells for $40.00 shipping
This person makes a nice unit, but his customer service is lacking. I
waited over four months for mine.
When Shawn stopped over Sunday we checked it out in my car. This item is
really neat. You program the number of cylinders and then the RPM to a 100
RPM increment. When you reach that RPM it lights the light (6 LED's).
I cut the wiring to the 6 LED's. I mounted a Radio Shack 276-309 wide
angle (40 degrees) 800 mcd red LED to my
A-pillar oil pressure gauge mount using a lens.
I added a 150 ohm resistor which is running the LED at 20 ma. May adjust
the brightness after trying it. I mounted the main unit under the dash. You
have to supply the unit with power (hot in run and start line) and ground.
The third wire you connect to the tachometer signal. This signal is
available on the instrument cluster connector X16 pin 20 black wire. X16 is
on the passenger side facing the unit.
