Can anyone help me find an install guide for the large tip display?
I am waiting on install directions from seller, but would like to do the install like, right this minute. He labeled the 4 wires for me, and that was great, but I dont have the write up yet..
Anyone?
TIA, :)

BUMP

The four wires on this guage are labeled:

1) negative ground

2)Black/Brown TCU.....

3)Dimmer switch blue Grey.....

4)PW, Ignition....

Where is the TCU ? Wheres the easiest place to tap into the ignition? And how to get into the dimmer?

TIA everyone, I figure its better to ask first, then to break something and ask later. :p

Oh and Christina, I'll start looking for spots where there's a good back-drop :)

Thank you kokopelli,
I went exactly where you said and found the wire.
I couldnt push the pin out so I bent it up, snipped and stripped the brown /black wire from the TCU,
And connected it to the guage signal wire.
Im not getting any reading on the guage :( ,
and the tiptronic display is still on the dash when I put it in tip mode. Any suggestions?

Man Rusty, Where were you yesterday ?!?! :lol:
I couldnt find that thread, and audithings site hasnt been up for a while.
With the help of finding the sending wire from the TCU,
I just tapped into the cigarette lighter for my power/ground.
S_Klass,
I bought it off "B5Car" in classifieds. Julian has one he might want to get rid of if your interested.. I will take a pic tonight and post it or PM it to you. Its basically just a digital guage which comes on when your in tip mode displaying the gear your in. Looks awesome at night...
