Fitted Shift lights - RPM now read 500 higher


Recommended Posts

So, I finally got round to fitting my Shift - i lights today.


Hard wired in (soldered). Live taken from spare terminal on ign switch. Earth from the speedo multi plug and the tacho signal from the white / black wire also ont he speedo multiplug.


Reconnected everything and started up and the rev counter now seems to be reading 500 rpm high (tickover was ~1500 instead of 1000).


Anyone else seen this? Std EU3 1.6ss K.

tickover was ~1500


Minus 1500? So you've fitted a Honda engine too? *tongue*


I use exactly the same feeds as you - my Shift-I works fine and does not affect the main rev counter.


Only thing I can thin of doing is to fit a diode between the two - that way the Shift-I has no chance of influencing the signal into the tacho...
