    **** NO, i just gave up on it and put it aside, tried to splice it into the back green wires as instructions say at nasiac. so no luck, let me know if you ever get it!?

    i'm hoping it's not our shift light. i've seen others that have worked. when you plugged it in it would it flash when your turned on your car but not work when it reached the right rpm?

    yeah when i hooked it it, and put the 3k pill it would only come one once the car had power, and when i rev it to 3k nothing, so i dunno whats up with it, its just been sitting for a while, really would like to get it in,

    here's the deal

    so this is what i found out.

    called autometer today and told them my sad story, they told me i had to buy an additional tach adapter kit for our scooby's cuz the signal was out of whack or something. called my local autometer dealer and they sell them for 77 bucks or something, they also said another manufacturer made tach adapters for 25 or so so I gave them a call and they told me that they don't make tach adapters for our scoobies. so basically we're **** out of luck and i'm posting this crap back on ebay soon. unless you wanna fork up another 77 bucks.... sorry man, tried my best as well. i heard something about people throwing there's against a wall, i think i might go ahead and do that.
