Yeah you can have just the light. You can program it so when you hit a certain rpm it lights up.

Does it 'read' the RPM's from the cigarette lighter?
Can you also cut the wires and connect them to the wires of the lighter underneath the console to have the wires all out of sight?

yes it reads RPM's through your cig lighter plug, the process works by reading the RPM's from the alternator, more revolution per minute in the alternator, the more it gives power to make the light blink, theres a thread regarding how it works, if somebody knows please explain better... really sophisticated stuff, that one on ebay NO, Pivot is is the best and its from Japan thumbsup

i posted this in the other thread...found it somewhere else tho.

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.

Can I hook this up the same way we hook up our foot well neons? Using a "add-a-fuse" to create a new circuit for it.
