    Remote Start Experts- Need your help.

    Installed an Audiovox Pursuit Starter in a 98 Ford Econoline E350 diesel today... I can't find the tach wire. According to 12v.com, the tach should be white/pink. I tried every white pink I could find, not one would work... I busted out the DMM and tested as well I'm wondering it is a different color because it has a diesel engine, any help would be appreciated

    not sure off the top if that ford falls into the realm but many for deisel trucks have a dirty tach signal and y\would require a directed tach signal generator...if not you can try at any injector the odd colored wire

    I'm thinking this may be it, I'll order up one of those generators.

    Thanks for the help. I'm still pretty new to doing starters and alarms

    I would check in the gauge cluster as well...

    Otherwise the odd color on the injectors; but not sure it this works for all diesels.

    EDIT: And you should always have your DMM out...

    A power probe is not a standard test light. A power probe will not cause an airbag to deploy nor will it mess up any circuitry.
