I'll take a stab at this, there's better than a 50-50 chance, and you can do no damage if the first try is wrong. Red is +12 volts and Black is chassis ground. that's a given. I would try Blue to coil pack "Tach" terminal, and Green for the dashlight. If I am right about the Blue and Green, a 9-volt battery from Green to Black will light the light if it's not burned out. If the Green doesn't light it, try the Blue, but my bets on the Green. If the Blue doesn't light it either, the bulb is toast.

I have a 2003 spyder eclipse gts 3.0l how do i install a after market tachometer?


I really cannot tell you how to do that. You need to follow the instructions that came with the tachometer.

Please note: I would be very cautious about connecting aftermarket equipment into your computer input or output circuits. These things have been known to cause all kinds of drivability problems as well as make it impossible to pass an emissions test (if it is required where you live).

I have personally seen aftermarket add-on equipment cause everything from engine cylinder misfires to transmission shifting problems to engine stalling and no-starts. I do not recommend using any at all. However, there are usually no problems created by "stand alone" accessories that are powered directly from the battery and do not require splicing into any of the computer circuits.

My professional recommendation on this is that if you think you need a tachometer to operate your vehicle, or you just like the looks of a tachometer bouncing up and down, then you would be money and headaches ahead to buy a vehicle that is equipped with a tachometer from the manufacturer - you may be opening a can of worms that you do not want.

This is just my opinion based on 37 years of experience diagnosing and repairing automobiles (and having to clean-up aftermarket add-on messes) - do with it as you wish.

My radio in my truck has soped working and I need to install a new radio. However I do not know which wires go to what speakers etc. Can you help me identify which color wires represent the speakers they...


I always would go to bestbuy or walmart to get a harness adapter kit and the radio bezel installation kit to install an aftermarket radio. Just plug it in, and the wires are all labeled for speakers, antenna, power, etc.

I want to install an aftermarket tachometer in a 1997 Mazda Protege Dx, which does not utilize a coil in it's ignition system. Anyone knows where to get the signal from? Thanks!


some tachs can take the signal from one of the spark plug wires; you just thread the wire into the bood with the plug, or into the other end of the spark plug wire.

05 grand what do i need to install a aftermarket radio


Get a wiring harness adapter kit (about $10) from a stereo shop. It has harness plugs that will plug directly into your harnesses in the dash, and has color-coded wires that you will color-match to the wires on the aftermarket deck's harness. You may need an antenna adapter as well. If your stock stereo face is taller than the aftermarket one, you'll need a dashboard adapter kit to take up the extra space.
