set it up and it works fine but....

-my head lights never go off, even with the key out.
-and when i turn my light switch to the 3rd click {where the headlights should come on} it kills the tach.
also i think my gass guage might not be working

i connected:
black to ground
green to coil
white isnt connected yet {light for tach}
and red to the red/whit wire undrr the dash


is this right????
and what wire should i connect the white to??{what is the dash light{s} lead wire colour??

thx

Thanks for giving me a clue on how to kill my DRL system. It seems you were pulling the ground ckt of the coil down when the key was off and this seems to be how they control the DRL relay. The red wire should go to ignition on feed and the white is probably for lights in the meter. I figure they must switch the relay off with the tach signal and thus when you fed grnd thru the meter it was on constant. When the lights were turned on you then fed voltage thru the red/white down to the coil and killed the tach. You may have also blown a fuse with all this and that could be why the fuel gauge is out.
