CAN Wiring Information

CAUTION: The CAN Direct Wire option is intended for experienced installers with access to the vehicle’s wiring diagrams, and must be connected in accordance with proper electrical practices and CAN wiring techniques. Dauntless Devices LLC is not liable for any problems arising from this type of installation. See product Installation and User Guide for full details, instructions, advisories, and disclaimers. For most customers, we instead recommend the simple OBD Plug & Play option.

 

Supported Vehicles – Direct Wire to Tachometer / 12V RPM Pulse:

This option is intended for older vehicles and others that do not offer compatible CAN data, however this does come with important electrical requirements and considerations. It is designed for a typical 12-Volt DC tachometer pulse signal which switches between 12 V positive and 0 V (ie ground) at a frequency corresponding to the engine speed. It may also be possible to trigger this via a fuel injector pulse or other 12 Volt signals, however this connection will impose a small load increase on those circuits and could possibly interfere with proper operation on some vehicles. Whenever possible, use a wire specifically meant for a tachometer. See product Installation and User Guide for full details, advisories, and disclaimers.

CAUTION: This Direct Wire option is intended for experienced installers with access to the vehicle’s wiring diagrams, and must be connected in accordance with proper electrical practices. Dauntless Devices LLC is not liable for any problems arising from this type of installation. Do not connect to ignition coil high-voltage output, spark plug wires, CDI systems, or other high-voltage sources. See product Installation and User Guide for full details, instructions, advisories, and disclaimers.

The following Pulses Per Revolution options are offered, to support a wide range of engines:

  • 0.5 – May be useful for 12-Volt fuel injector signal
  • 1
  • 1.5
  • 2 – Common for 4-Cylinder engines, and some V8’s
  • 2.5 – Some V10s (eg Dodge Viper)
  • 3 – Common for 6-Cylinder engines
  • 4 – Some 8-Cylinder engines
  • 5

 

Just Say NO to Devices that Kill Your Battery!

We optimized our shift light with extreme efficiency and intelligent logic, to give you more options and help prevent draining your battery.

  • Sleep Mode Threshold: 1 minute of inactivity
  • Low-Battery Shutdown: approx <11.8 V for 1-2 minutes
  • Typical Power Consumption @ 12.5 V:
    • Sleep / Shutdown: <2 mA
    • Fully-Awake Idle: <55 mA
    • All Lights On at Max Brightness: <190 mA

Sleep mode is intended to drastically reduce the drain on your vehicle’s battery when the ignition power is off. It will not be entered within 2 minutes of device power-up / reset, or within the threshold time after an active connection to the mobile app, engine RPM is detected, CAN data traffic is detected, or the device’s button is pressed. After entering Sleep Mode, this device will periodically enter a low-power wake-up to check for ignition / engine activity, causing a very brief increase in current draw, and then return to Sleep Mode. Mobile app connectivity is not possible until the device is fully awakened, which can be easily accomplished by pressing the device’s button or starting the vehicle’s engine. Depending on the vehicle, certain other activity may also wake it. These characteristics and thresholds are subject to change with future firmware updates.

 

Display Unit Dimensions (approximate):

  • Length: 69mm  /  2 3/4″
  • Width w/o Connector: 47mm  /  1 7/8″
  • Width w/Connector: 55mm  /  2 3/16″
  • Height: 18mm  /  3/4″

While our slim case is great for most vehicles, we’ve found a few vehicles that can benefit from increased visibility by adding our 6mm Spacer
