Don't know if you knew this or not yet, but 99+ GT's need a COP (Coil on Plug) Tach Adapter for an aftermarket shift light or tach. Check out www.ponyexpressperformance.com for the best on the market.

Re: INSTALLING SHIFT LIGHT

you need the adaptor for your car, the green wires usually goes to the coil pack but... that wont work on your car

Re: INSTALLING SHIFT LIGHT

i dont see why you would need a tach adapter, just find the correct wire to splice into liek i did with my raptor, i guess it should be the same

Re: INSTALLING SHIFT LIGHT

Re: INSTALLING SHIFT LIGHT

The green wire on the Autometer Shift Light is the tach signal but you will need a tach adater to make it all work on that light... There are several tach adapters availble for way less than $75 so pick one up and it will all work perfectly.
