Does this gauge have outputs for a shift light ?

Asked by: MustangMan
Thank you for your question. 5897 does not have outputs for a shift light, this is typical with our in-dash tachometers. If you wanted to pair a shift light with an in-dash tachometer, you can use a stand-alone shift light such as #5343.

Any idea if this tachometer can be hooked up to a V-10 motor out of a dodge viper? If it can, what all additional accessories should I purchase to make it work?

Asked by: Stip
Thank you so much for contacting us. It really depends on which Viper engine you'll be working with. Some would require the use of a 9117 tach adapter (https://www.autometer.com/tach-adapter.html) while some would require the tach to be sent into our shop to have a custom cylinder calibration programmed into the tach. For specifics on your vehicle, I'd recommend reaching out directly to our tech team at 866.248.6357, via the Chat Link on every page on the site via email here: https://www.autometer.com/resources/index/ask_a_question Hope this helps!

on the back side of a phantom auto meter gauge, what does the SIG stand for.

Asked by: JERRY
Hi Jerry, thank you so much for contacting us. SIG stands for signal. That's where the input for the gauge is connected. Hope this helps!
