Can anyone help with this problem. I have a VDO Tach and we are trying to conect to my 3800SC. We tried the PCM port but the tach does not work. Is there a wire in the coil pack area. If so does anyone know which color or wire to use.

If you look at the ignition module connector from the wire side( not the pin side) while the clip is on the top side you will see two rows of four pins, eight total.
The tachometer signal wire is normally not used on some of these harnesses so you may have to splice into it on the module side of the harness. (this view is not from the module side but from the harness side)
Anyway it is the top right wire/pin that you want for the 3800SC.
I have all of this detailed on my CD BTW. The pin numbers refer to the lower row of 16 pins on the ECM Red connector.

Ignition Module Connector

..................CLIP.......................
(12 V+ Run)...(Pin 7)...(Pin 9)...(Tach Head Signal)
(Pin 16)...(Pin 15)...(Pin 6)...(Pin 8 )
............View from wire side............

Any questions just email me.

Jim

I just finished going over that cd about the wiring, Its going to enable me to wire up my car myself. I would not think of doing it without it.

The tach wire should be white (pin E)at the coilpack. There are two white wires at the coilpack.One is pinA{est control} the other is pinE {tachometer}. It can also be found at the pcm harness(on cars with an air box pcm)con 2 pin8 white{tachometer}. it changes to white/black at the dash instrument cluster harness on these cars also. steve
