Wiring of 6 speed gear indicator
on: June 01, 2020, 02:57:03 AM
Hi All, In 2018 I bought a Gear Indicator off EBay. Due to things beyond my control I have only just found time to install the unit. I have run the wires back to the plug which I think is used for diagnostics and got ready to connect and found the unit doesn't come with a diagram to indicate which wire goes where so I don't want to go any further without the proper information. The wire colours of the unit are 1 x Red, 1 x Black and 1 x White. It came with a female plug but the wires have to be installed in the plug once you have run the wires through to near the existing blanked off male plug. I will really appreciate some help with this if possible.
Kind regards

Does this help with the colours and the plug orientation?

The one I got, and I think this is true of most of them, attaches to the diagnostic (ODB) plug under the seat.  A very easy install, and I find it useful.  There are also a number of videos of guys install the indicator, for example,

I think rather than fast i think it was telling him its faulty ,now if it was the gear indicator that was faulty or the presenter that is yet to be determined .
