How do install a shift light?

Hey, just orderd a cheap shift light for my 94 gt. It has 3 wires, 12 volt switched power, ground witch I can figure out, but the third wire is a signal wire. Where do I splice this wire to? Also any mounting location ideas? I was thinking In the heat/ac vent

Figured it out, there's three wires as I stated one is ground BLACK easy enough, one is 12v RED switched ignition, and one is GREEN witch is the the signal. I found with the 5.0 it's easyiest to run a wire out under the hood to the coil next to the distributor, and splice in to the yellow wire or left wire on the 2 prong harness that plugs into the lower part of the coil, this is the negative. The shift light is a cheapo eBay LED adjustable one, and works exelent for the $19 I played for it. I also didnt glue or screw any holes in my dash, I just bent the bracket and clipped it onto the center console near the pedals where my legs won't hit it and aimed it up at my face. I'm contemplating dissecting the board out of it and hooking up a brighter auto meter mini or raptor tack light because the eBay one is not all that bright when the sun hits it, but at night it's obnoxious.

Here's some pics of the wire and where I mounted it. Its actually a white wire I'll put arrows to it in the pic. Also I KNOW ITS A AUTOMATIC I use the b&m ratchet shifter at the strip and it works exelent, so I figured I'd install a shift light so i can really wind her out without red lineing.

Nice shifter! I didn't know you could change the ugly handle part on these. I might get one now. Looks really clean

Thanks, it's available on American muscle.com, it's made by b&m. I had my factory AODE spiced up with a shift kit and a stalled converter when it took a poop. Now I can controll every gear with this shifter SAFELY without missing second or going into reverse by accident because the factory shifter can do that if you just touch the brake. I also changed the knob because the T handle it came with was so tall my finger couldent pick up the lock witout putting my Palm all aquard.
