Speedometer help- v8 into 98rs
Ive been blessed to have a 98 with the funky speedometers accoring to everyone I talk to.
The normal Subaru sends the speed signal for the VSS through 3 wires that go and do their thing.
The GB wire goes to the check connector or gets grounded.
The GY wire goes to the cluster.
The BR wire goes several ways but needs to get to the OBD port.
Now apparently all Subarus ECU's do the thinking and figure the speed out and send that to the Clusters which process it and you got speedo!
Apparently on the 98 its somewhat backwards. The Cluster has 2 output wires for signals going to the ECU. The cluster calculates the speed and then sends it to the ECU....
Ive cleared it with several people... Including Andrewtech, Area1320, n ECS.
So Im looking to see if anyone else has had to deal with this...
Paul mentioned adding a pin for the Information spot on the cluster and wiring that that way... but I need those diagrams anyway...
Basically Im lost and Im trying to figure it out lol.

Hmmm, If we're talking about the same Paul, then this is what he told me: Run a wire from the VSS right to the custer and ECU. Find a source for the 12v power and ground it to the pitch mount.
