This is a discussion on Shift Light for 2011 WRX within the Interior Mods forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; i don't know anything about the 2011 transmission, but i won't ever hard launch my 2007 wrx. nice light location ...
i don't know anything about the 2011 transmission, but i won't ever hard launch my 2007 wrx. nice light location though.
when you drop it at 4k, does it still stay in high boost range on launch?

top addition. Planning on doing the same once I figure out how to remove the "information" dash. Any ideas would be appreciated.
I just removed the radio, gauges and side panel.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question (not an expert on the electronics...) but how does this connect to the LED?
The 4 wires from the unit are
red - power
black - ground
grey - tacho signal input
blue - device
How do you power the LED with 1 wire? Obviously the light needs power and ground.
Do you connect the blue wire to 1 side of the LED and ground the other to the chassis to complete the circuit?
Or am I missing something...
Yes, I understand the LED has 2 wires. That's my point/question.
How does the LED (which requires 2 wires, power + ground) connect to the RPM activated switch when it only has 1 wire (the blue one) to connect to your 'device', in this case the LED.
Obviously you don't just plug it into the same red/black as the switch because it would just be permanently on.
So does the LED need to plug into something else, which accepts a single wire on/off signal (similar to a car amp turning on/off).
Or does the blue wire function as the 'positive' wire to the LED, and then you ground the LED to the chassis?
Not sure how you turn 1 signal wire into a 2-wire LED... ?
Reading it, I understand your question. If I'm getting it correct, they want you to hook up the ground (-) lead of the LED to the ground point (I recommend the same point as the device, 0 resistance) and the positive lead to the Blue wire. Let me know if that works, just in case anyone else needs it.

This is pretty nice! I like it. I may have to put this in when I do a new headunit and gauges.
Yep, that's the diagram I was looking at. The way you have explained connection it was my assumption too, I just wanted to make sure.
I haven't actually bought it yet because I wanted to make sure this was correct, and that I wouldn't buy it only to find that I needed to purchase something else to make it work as well.
Going to pick one up soon and will post back with confirmation.
Will do, Greg.
Thanks for the input.
