Can an old Auto Meter rpm pill style shift light be modified to work with this controller?

Asked by: BossFord
Hi, thank you for the question. The older style pill light was an independently operated light that triggered internally with its own circuitry. This particular model would not work properly with the older style pill light. You'd want to run a simple light-only like model 5334 or a completely independent light, like the 5343, which is the successor to the older "pill" light.

I purchased a #5312 shift controller & a #5332 shift light from you. On the download instructions it does not show the tach signal input wire, optional (VIOLET wire) or the trans brake/line lock (BLUE wire),does the blue wire have to be connected?

Asked by: JoeKool
Thank you so much for contacting us. The 5312 does not use either a purple or blue wire; those are used on the Level 2 and Level 3 devices. A 5312 will simply use Power (red), Ground (black) and Signal (green). Hope this helps!

Can this controller be used with a 5" sport comp tach and an msd digital 6 ignition? If so, how should it be wired?

Asked by: Dwayne
Hi Dwayne, thank you so much for the question. Yes, the 5312 is fully compatible with an MSD ignition and will work along side a Sport Comp Tachometer. I'll provide a direct link below to the instructions, but both the tachometer and 5312 Shift Light Controller will share the tach signal output on the MSD ignition: https://www.autometer.com/media/manual/2650-1207.pdf

Is this controller good to work on a Harley-Davidson VROD(2017) ? also, what are the dimensions of this controller ? I'm kinda tight on space for mounting. Thank You!

Asked by: JoeKool
Thank you so much for contacting us. While the earlier V Rods had a tach wire out of the computer, I don't believe that is the case on the later models. You should be able to connect it to one of the coils at 1/2 PPR calibration, though it may be a bit jumpy at lower RPM due to the low frequency of the signal. Our 9117 tach adapter would remedy that, though I'd be inclined to try it without first as it's really only the higher rpm readings that you're interested in. The unit itself is 5" wide by 2.8" tall by about 1" deep. Hope this helps!

I purchased a 5312 along with a 5330 shift light & would like to know where exactly the green wire goes to on a 08 Holden VE HSV which has a L98. I was told the green wire from the 5312 must be connect to the purple wire on the cylinder 1 of the coil.

Asked by: Bazza
Hi there, thank you so much for the question. While we have no specific access to wiring data on the Holden, since the L98 is a variation of the LS, you may be able to acquire a 2 pulse/4 cylinder signal off the ECU. It's also possible you may require the 9117 tach adapter, which will provide LS details in the instructions. If you have additional questions on the adapter installation, please send us an email here: http://www.autometer.com/resources/index/ask_a_question

Does the 5312 have a rev limiter? Will it work with Pertronix Exciter1?

Asked by: Scott
Hi Scott, thank yo so much for contacting us. The 5312 will control a shift light but is not designed to be a rev limiter. That function is most commonly controlled by the vehicle's ignition system. While I'm not personally familiar with the Pertronix unit you're referring to, provided it's a 12v or 16v ignition system that uses a suppression style plug wire, I wouldn't anticipate any compatibility issues. Hope this helps.
