I picked up a Digital dashboard from Acewell (Electrosport is the US distributor). The unit completely replaces the entire dash cluster upfront for the same price as a single unit from Dakota Digital. I got the 396x unit here: http://www.electrosport.com/street/s...eries-3950.php
Everything came in one package that is just excellent. Well I went to go read the diagrams before I install and I just have a couple of questions that I'm hoping someone here can answer for me.
1) Is there a wire in the dashboard anywhere that is hot all the time other than right on the ignition switch? I didn't see one, but I'm notorious for missing things.
2) On the front ignition coil, is the Black wire positive or is the Red? "Common sense" wiring says Black is negative, but when you look at the tach. gauge, Brown gives power from ignition switch, and B/Y is the ground wire. The wiring diagram that came with the digital unit shows to hook the sensor either to the positive lead between the CDI and the Coil or to wrap an included wire around the plug wire for inductance sensing. I'd prefer to use the coil wire for accuracy.
3) I'm sure I can measure it (sometime) if I borrow a meter, but does anyone know if the fuel sensor is 100, 250 or 510 ohms?
4) What is the "Distance Sensor" that has Red and Green wires coming from the Turn signal control unit? Is this for the odometer/trip odometer? If so, will it hurt anything to disconnect and insulate it since it is not needed anymore? The new unit comes with a speedo replacement cable and handles odometer functions internally.
Thanks in advance guys!
P.S. Can someone verify for me that on the oil pressure warning light that the Brown wire is the + and the Blue/Red striped wire (going to sensor) is the - ?
