you fail again sir, OBD-0 doesn't have that nice feature

Either use the wire at the dizzy, or pull the instrument cluster and tap into it there.

there should be a wire behind your speed-o not sure which 1 it plugs into your insrement cluter and its is the tach signal wire, gotta hook it to that. someone one hondacivicforum.com told me what 1 it is along time ago, i'll see if i can find it.

quote: kc4...hcf.com....You don't actually have to go through the firewall. If you take off your gauges there are wire clips connecting to it. Two smaller ones on each side, and two big ones--one dead center, one a little to the left. On my Honda Civic DX, the tach wire is blue with silver rings and it is on the big clip a little to the left.

WARNING: Some places on the net say that use the blue wire with silver rings on the smaller clip on the left. THAT IS WRONG! That wire goes to the airbag (SRS) light, and can be a pain if you cut it.

thats all i can find so one of the larger clip the one thats offset find the blue wire with silver rings on it. just cut it it doesnt have a stock tach its not needed in the harness clip. strip the green wire on ur tach and strip the blue n silver wire splice together and if you have a soldering iron or gun bust it out for a really good conection elec tape it up and you shopuld be good to go....hope it helps
