You can search your particular vehicle schematic or find it in a chiltons or haynes book look for the engine schematic and the wire will be connected to your #1 coil + wire on separate coils if you have coil packs for 3-4 plugs each there should be 3 wires 2+ones 1-return find the + associated with the #1plug

SOURCE: 98 civic lx where is ignition coil?? ++

IT'S A BLUE WIRE ON THE BACK OF THE CONNECTOR THAT WOULD NORMALLY GO TO THE FACTORY TACHOMETER IN THE DASH. YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASH GAUGE CLUSTER TO GET AT THE CONNECTOR. THE CONNECTOR WILL NOT BE PLUGGED INTO ANYTHING IF YOU DON'T HAVE A FACTORY TACHOMETER (DX, CX, HX ETC...YOU WILL HAVE TO SPLICE INTO OR CUT THE BLUE WIRE FROM THE PLUG. IT GOES TO TACH SIGNAL WIRE ON YOUR NEW TACH.

SOURCE: How do I hook-up Sunpro Super tach 2.

I've got an install diagram for that around here somewhere but for now, the trigger wire to run the tach itself goes to the "tach" connection next to the "Bat" terminal on the distributor cap. one wire attaches to your dash lighting so it comes on with the dash lights and dims properly, the other wire is likely a ground. If I don't add to this later, try googling Sun electronics...I am fairly sure they have an install page.

I never worked on a Suzuki so if this has a distributor look for a connector that has the letter T on it
If it is a distributorless ignition the inginition module will have the same marking for the tachometer.
If you do not see any reference such as I mentioned do not connect any wires anywhere for this tach until you know from someone else that has a better idea

Need to know which wire to spice to hook up a sefl installed tachometer.


The factory Tach on the dash uses Instrument Cluster connector pin C13 its a yellow/white wire. Or off the ECM pin #47 (also yellow/white wire) that is the ECM's Tach out signal. Be careful not to wire it wrong it could blow your ECM or TCM computers

its really easy im not to familiar with that vehicle but it all works the same if it hasd a distributer and a seperate coil or even a dis cap mounted coil either way there is two wires that run into that actual coil all you have to do is tap into them and figure out which way works just pull back the unsulation on the two wires that your tac will come with there might be 3 but one will be a ground and just kinda half way hook it up till you see the tac come to life its really easy just be patient and dont worry if the wires are wrong it wont blow anything up the tac just wont work until you hook it up right 9 times out of 10 when you buy a tach it comes with directions
