The green wire should be the ignition(-). Do not confuse it with the regular ground.
Check your manual where to find your diagnostic connector( the one they put a jumper on for smog check, and where the diagnostic codes are checked); it is usually in the engine compartment, or maybe under the steering wheel.It is usually covered by a cap that says DIAGNOSTIC. Somewhere in or around it there should be the IGN- hookup.
Some other possibility would be to check for the ignition- cable coming out of the distributor(that is if you have a distributor).
My 91 Toyota has both, but I hooked my tach to the IGN- right besides the diagnostic connector in the engine compartment.
WARNING; my tachometer says that when the tachometer is hooked up, never let the tachometer ground itself( it means it should never touch the chassis or any metal, and also that the cables going to the tach should be VERY WELL SHIELDED!!); otherwise it would ruin the coil of your car.
That also means be careful with the cable not getting frayed or where you place the screws if you hook the tach to the chassis.I would recommend hooking it to a plastic part of the console, or place it over a rug or rubber glove so that the tach does not touch ground(chassis).
Connect the green wire to the negative side of the coil.
The green wire from the tach goes to the negative side of the coil.
There should be a blue wire behind your original gauges. That's where you hook up your green signal wire
need to know where to hook coil wire is all i need to know.
Green wire on the distributor is the tachometer pick up. Green wire on the distributor is the tachometer pick up.
You may not have a ground wire in your older housewiring. Hook it somewhere to the metal plate that holds the fan to the box.
the green is the signal wire and it goes to the negative side of the ignition coil
It goes to the top wire on the coil, the one that usually has a cover over it.
The green wire goes to the negative side of the coil. The yellow wire is probably for a light in the dial. You'd want to connect it to a power source that comes on when the headlights are on. The red wire should be connected to a source that is live anytime the key is in the on position.
The green wire is supposed to go to the negative wire of the coil , that is usually a white wire, but make sure that the tachometer documents tell you to use the negative wire it is usually the white wire. If you have a test light hook the cramp to the negative of the battery and check the two wires if the light glows that is the positive, connect the green wire to the other wire it will be the negative. There are some that say to use the positive, ""PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTION VERY CAREFULLY"" Or you could short out the coil and the igition module.
off the neg. coil wire just t in
Hook your speakers up to the amp.
hook your green wire from the tach to the white wire from the coil PAC it should be a white and a yellow wire coming from the coil. the tach should have a white wire that will be your light inside the tach a red wire for power and a black for ground.. good luck
You will need to hook up your tachometer to the coil connector. After disconnecting the throttle sensor and applying the hand brake, look for the plain black wire at the coil connector to hook it up to.
a tachometer, wire and wire terminals
Load is too large for the circuit, or there is a short in the wire you are hooking up.
on my tach, the green wire connects to the neg on the ign coil pack
White wire coming from the distributor.... remove a section of sleeve from wire and splice the signal wire from tachometer to it!
i dont know whwere is the tachometer wire of 2001 ford windstar
ok. the first thing u do is unplug the ignition coil and find a red and black wire and just kinda skin it and touch it when the car is on to see any movement and the dimmer switch pull it out and find a green and blackwire hook the white wire up to that and test the lights you know turn the head lights on everything else is instructions when you buy the tach.
DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for your actions You need an ECU diagram of your vehicle. Find the correct pin # and find the wire that attaches to it. Use a wire tap and run that wire as the signal wire to your new tach
Green is trigger which goes to the tach side on HEI distributor. Red to positive, black to neg, and remaining wire is for the light so it is hooked to anything on your light circuit such as dash lights.
if you have the Bose system you might need to hook up the aftermarket amp wire to the factory amp
If you are hooking up a trailer plug the left turn signal wire is yellow and the right turn signal wire is green.
