    Yeah thats what i use with my lc1,works perfect for me but i did not do a write up though,its not that bad.You will have to unscrew the steering column cover,then use a test light to find which wire puts out power when the key is turned to the on position,then connect the blue wire to that,then find which wire gives power when you turn the key to accessory and connect the green wire to it,then find the wire with power to it at all times no matter what position the key is in and connect the red wire to it,finally the gray wire needs to be connected to the park brake switch.When i say connected to, i spliced and solder every one, it can be a little time consuming cause there is not too much room where the wiring comes out behind the ignition key switch, hopes this helps.

    it does...but do you remember what color the wires were that u put the autotimers wires into? and according to innovates manual it says the gray wire is optional if you are simulating an o2 sensor?

    does this sound right?

    red - 12v+ constant
    blue - ig2 ignition on output (black/white)
    green - ig1 accessory output (blue)

    white - brown wire on lc1
    black - blue/white on lc1

    gray - parking brake switch (color wire unknown)

    ok so i am down to 1 wire and i just need confirmation here is all

    the gray wire is supposed to go to the parking brake switch....i am a 5 speed i dont think i have a parking brake LOL so should i just leave it taped up and tucked away?

    the wiring for future reference is the

    red on the gauge runs to a 12 volt constant...

    blue on the gauge runs to the black/white wire under the steering wheel which is in the harness with the
    blue/black clip

    green on the gauge plugs into the solid blue wire in that same pigtail

    white plugs into the brown wire on the lc1

    black plugs into the blue and black wires after bridging those together...

    ignore the yellow since it is an analog narrowband signal!



    the only thing it comes down to is the parking brake switch...can anyone confirm the location of this wire?

    When they refer to the parking brake, its the e-brake. Connect it to the e-brake switch.

    Which wire is that? Same pigtail as the blue and black/white? I just need to know which wire and where it is at...

    I'm wondering....is the clutch pedal position sensor a good place to plug my gray wire into? According to my schematics it intersects with the ebrake switch anyways!

    No look at the bottom of the e brake lever you will see a two wire switch,with the e brake pulled up you should see it at the bottom just tap into one of those wires.The purpose of this is to not allow the the engine to run with the park brake off.
