AX-15 Shift light

Some of you may have read my post about the wires on the AX-15, but now I'm wondering how to hook up my shift light. my YJ didn't come with one from the factory, but I can use the light socket from the emissions maintenance light-since mine has over 82500 miles, and for some odd reason,I don't think the 258 will be running at 165000 miles!!!

so, how do I grab the right wire from the PCM to hook it up?

Re: AX-15 Shift light

What year is your YJ? Couldn't find it on your profile. I looked thru the schematics for all years with the 258's and the shift light hookup appears to be the same though. The schematic shows a pink wire from the ECM, changing to tan as it connects to the upshift switch. Tan comes out of the upshift switch to a brn/lt blu wire to the shift indicator. Would post a pic..., but my scanner is broken. Hope this helps and good luck. Laters.

Re: AX-15 Shift light

Thanks for the reply, and my YJ is a 1990 model. Guess I should work on my profile. [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] anyway, back to the question. Since my YJ didn't have a shift light stock, would the upshift switch already be installed? Where is this switch, and how hard would it be to install if it's not there? I am going to be training a new driver, and someone else who has no experience in driving sticks. Other people on here have complained about the light being out of sync after adding tires and gears. how far off would mine be if I have stock gearing, and 31 inch tires?

Re: AX-15 Shift light

i have 33's on my YJ, and the first thing i did to it was unhook the shift light.. i couldnt stand seeing it on all the time.. its activated by rpm, and comes on at 1900 to 2000 rpm. got really annoying having it on almost all the time. the purpose is so you can theoretically get the best gas mileage possible. if you actually shift by it, you'll be dogging the engine on every shift unless you're going downhill.

Re: AX-15 Shift light

I would like to add an opinion. Forget about the light for teaching. Teach them to drive the manual transmission by ear. They shouldn't be looking at a guage. It's all feel anyway. Might as well use another sense. Instead of driving by nonsense. The Jeep will tell them right and wrong. Then pick up a new clutch for yourself. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
