hey JD...its hard to tell from the video...

this is not steady, lets say when it reaches 5k rpm, it blinks fast thumbsup

i assume you can hook it up to some other wires? b/c my cig lighter is occupied for the engine start button, and these shift lights are quite neat.

How this Shift Light Work?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In order to know how this shift light works. First, we must know the current activities during different driving situation. In general, after the engine started by the support of the Battery, the only electronic supply will be from our Alternator. Since the alternator produce electronic power when it spinning along with the engine. The faster it spin the more power it will generate. That's another reason when you may have the "engine noise" from your stereo system when you are speeding up your car since the more electronic power it generates and the higher current volts it produced. That's where the tricks of this shift lights used. It keeps on monitoring the change of the current from the Cigarette lighter, (Since it is the most convenience place to get the current information from your car and the most reliable source.). Once it reach on the specific current range generated by the alternator, it's internal resistor will be turn off and the LED light will blink.

I hope this information can help you to understand the concept perfectly. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks. [/quote]


found this on another forum...what i was wondering was...I have an high power alpine deck and a 12" sub...since this is drawing current won't it affect the accuracy of the shift light?

btw street...who is that girl in your sig??? eek

yes, this is what i noticed, the wires i have is spliced behind the cig lighter plug, i did this so i can still use the socket, when i charge my cellphone and use the sig lighter plug, it drew current and the shift light starts blinkin, anyway, this might affect when your bangin sounds, like BOOM BOOM then Blink Blink thumbsup
