Unable To Find Ignition Pluse Or Suitable Rpm Reading For A Shift Light

Hi everyone,

 

I recently bought a Shift light (Ecliptech Shift p2) for my 275 megane for better indication of shift point for while i'm on the track or hill climbs.

 

The Shift light is meant to be able to pick up an ignition signal off a coil pack to use for its reference to RPM but it doesn't. On newer megane's the coil on plug has only 2 wires to each coil and this seems to be to problem, as I can get the shift light working on my brother TRD Aurion in 5 mins which had the more common 4 wires.

 

Has anyone tried to put a shift light on a recent megane or Clio, is so how have you done it and where have you picked up the RPM feed

 

Any info or help would be massively appreciated

 

Cameron

You could given you wanted to spend a little extra buy an RSTuner with the switched 0-5V output. It then switches based on ECU Rpm. You also get all the other goodies in the package. Just a thought.

You may be able to use Torque Pro on an android phone/tablet to get what you want. I have a MY12 265 and have a set up using that app with a BT dongle plugged in to the OBDII port to get the info/data off the ECU. Torque Pro can be configured to mostly give what you want with readings in analogue or digital form. One of the things I have configured is to give a number on the display showing the current gear selected. Also I have it showing turbo boost, RPM, digital speed, digital Intake Air and coolant temp. All in the colour of your choice.☺ Not sure of the accuracy for your purpose but should be ok given that it is the same data used for the motor ECU inputs. There is a bit of a 'learning curve' first up.

Yeah, BT is not the quickest communication protocol and would probably create latency. Could be related to the speed of the display device as well. Hope you get it sorted. My application is not 'race critical'. Read that as just 'another toy to play with'. Would only tell me at what speed the engine blew up. ????
