hi there

i have a 2001 y reg van with digi dials fitted as standard (mine showd revs when put into test mode)

bought a set of clocks of ebay from a fiesta (digi also) pluged in and all worked ok inc rev counter

had to make sure the connector plug was locked into place properly (got all sort of weird readings first from gauges)

but they went straight in with np and work fine

have you checked your plug and the wires comeing of it for any breaks in conections etc ?

i bought some clocks with rev counter

THESE ONES

thought id just try them see if the rev counter worked, which it didnt,

so reading this thread its says pin 8 for wire to alternator

pin 8 on mine already has a black/white wire? do i need to splice into this?
