Raptor Shift Light Install

Over the weekend I had a chance to install my Raptor shift light. I snapped a few pics along the way and thought I would share them for anyone interested in doing this. Install was pretty easy the only difficult thing was getting slack in the wires running to the PCM to get them out of the tight area so I could splice into them.

Pics of the plastic mount included, just had to come up with a bolt that fit inside tight then had to grind the head down so it didn't rub on the body of the light.






Wiring was pretty basic although a bit limited on space, I ran the wires down alongside the steering column and out through the hole in the firewall where the soundtube used to be on my car. Standing facing the engine with the hood open in the front left of the car looking down you will see three separate clusters of wires stacked on top of each other. Carefully releasing the clips remove the top one and push it out of the way, you don't need that one. On the middle cluster you will need to remove it and splice the green wire into the white wire with the violet stripe. On the bottom connector you will need to connect the red wire of the shift light to the yellow wire (a inline fuse is recommended of 1/4 amp, I couldn't find a 1/4 amp anywhere local so I went with a 1/2 amp fuse. I spliced this in further up away from the connection point where I had more room to work). I then took the black wire of the shift light and spliced into the black wire with blue stripe. Hope that helps anyone who might be interested in doing this.

Very nice. I have this on my short list and have been thinking of a good place for it. Was it easy to get the bezel off? Also, how do you adjust this one? Is there a control module that you can preset?
Thx.
Troy

Thanks for the writeup Big Q. Have you tested it out during spirited driving in the daylight? What color LEDs do you have and is it really bright?

Yes just take your time with a plastic pry tool around the edge of the bezel working it out. The clips hold it pretty tight so I was a little nervous at first. There are two rotary dials in the light that you set for rpm's, there are also 3 switches, ensure those are all in the lower position for cylinder selection.

I have the blue led's and yes they are bright. Even in daylight it's very noticeable.

I should add I decided to wrap the wires from the shift light and then solder them I wasn't comfortable with removing the connectors and using scotch locks, one they aren't really reliable and two if I broke a wire getting it out of the PCM harness I wouldn't be pleased. I recommend disconnecting the battery when making the connections and soldering.
