Switch from metric to English units on the Tripminder. All measurements should change.

DTE to 0 is a common fault not necessarily tied into anything else. Search this board and LincolnsOnline.com.

You may have a bad speedometer cable if the needle jumps around at some speeds. Invest in an electrical vacuum troubleshooting manual (EVTM). You need to check the circuit for the speedometer.

Random guessing faults for troubleshooting takes up a lot of time and effort but doesn't always correlate to positive results. Good luck.

The white/yellow wire is a battery voltage sensing wire that provides the V-regulator an accurate reading of the actual battery voltage.

In the absence of battery voltage at this wire, you will get no charge and the dash lamp will remain illuminated.



There must be battery voltage at the "A" terminal at all times.

Hope this helps.

Grab the plug, the heavy charge wire, and the 175 amp fuse off the Taurus if you pull an alternator. That stuff will come in handy for the install. I like re-purposing the factory stuff, besides, usually you cannot buy that length of heavy cable and the fuse for what you'll pay for it at the junkyard.
