Tap into the pin location with alligator clips without doing a full spice first to make sure it lights up.
I also didn't mount it permanently. I wedge the mounting bracket located on the light itself between the black plastic gauge cluster and the dash pad. After racing, I simply unplug it, store it in my glove box, and tuck the lead back above the steering console.
I can't take credit. It's Joe's site and it's helped me out on several occasions.
I went out side to try and install the shift light, and with your instructions I was finish in about 20 minutes. Everything worked out fine, the only problem was that my red wire with yellow stripe was fourth from the right and the brown wire with yellow stripe was eighth from the right, but everything else was perfect.
Thanks for your help.
