How does the LED shift light works?


The LED shift light receives information wirelessly from the OBD2 module via Bluetooth. And the wireless OBD2 plug is included with the purchase. No extra wiring for data reading is needed, but you do have to use a multimeter to find out the 12V (+) (positive) and ground (-) (negative) to power up the shift light module. They are usually found in the steering wheel multifunction plugs wiring for most European and American vehicles. Japanese vehicle usually will have to run an extra ACC wire from the closest point to the steering wheel clock spring. Some delay is to be expected. In addition, cars' speedometers tend to over-read by about 5-10%. Basic video set up of the shift light module: Youtube
