Race tech dash2 install

Post by moose764 » 14/08/19 0:45

Hi
Just installing a racetech Dash2 electronic dash and have a question you maybe able to help me with please.

Most of the wiring I can use from the 3 connectors from behind the stock dash and am hoping I can use the tacho wires also but reading the installation instructions it says

“This channel requires a 5v or 12v square wave input applied to Connector1, Pin 2, as show in Table 1. IT MUST NOT BE CONNECTED DIRECTLY TO THE IGNITION COIL OR AN INDUCTIVE PICKUP FROM THE HIGH TENSION SIDE OF THE IGNITION SYSTEM. This channel should normally be connected to the engine speed output channel from the engine management ECU.”

I have 92 n/a which has no obd2.

The question is does anyone know if my car conforms to the racetech requirements ie. 12v square wave NOT CONNECTED DIRECTLY TO THE IGNITION COIL OR AN INDUCTIVE PICKUP FROM THE HIGH TENSION SIDE OF THE IGNITION SYSTEM

Also if anyone has any experience in fitting one of these I would value any advice. I’m very cautious as I don’t want my £600 toy to go pop.

Thanks in advance

Dave
