    Default Wiring in corsa b speedo transducer

    Is it possible to use an electronic speedo transducer from a corsa b in an f20 gearbox as a speed sensor with stand alone . And if so does anyone know what wire does what on the transducer . Cheers

    I'm attempting to do this right now. Transducer is live, sensor and earth. I plan to connect my 5v up to black and blue/red back into the dials.

    Just make a note of how many pulses it is to configure the dash with.

    This link implies you need to add a resistor but I'm going to try without first - http://www.race-technology.com/forum...pic.php?t=1697

    I have now come to realise for me this will only work for boost by gear . But will not work for traction control so i am back on with figuring out one rear sensor off the drum and 2 front sensors using abs sensors and abs ring i just need someone bright enough to make me a dual vr conditioner
    That will go between the front sensors and the ms3 to make a wave signal that the ecu can read .

    The vr conditioner boards and components kit are only about 15 but depends what ecu you have

    Can you get something off the edge of the drum? Maybe araldite a magnet there and set a sensor up to read it shouldn't be too tough to do.

    One advantage of rear disc conversion is you can use the ABS rear wheel bearings. It's a pain to get the wires to it but I'm told it's doable

    I remember my Corsa C rear discs having sufficiently long enough wires I thought it was a good idea to cut them off flush. Would be a nice solution.

    I have pics in my WIP of fitting an ABS sensor and the "orange box of tricks" to convert it into a usable signal too.

    ^^ realy what page are they on mate . I have plasma cut the brackets out to hold the sensors on the front knuckled so would be good to see how someone else has done it.

    Laser cut bracket sounds good, any pics? Something you'd sell?
