Default Installing a Raptor

For those interested in buying a raptor shift light, I just mounted one tonight and noticed something interesting.

If you look at the guage pod, you will see two black screws going upward holding the plastic trim in place. If you remove the screw on the left, you can place the raptor bracket right in that recess and then thread the screw back in place. The shift light will then hang-down from the left side.

It is a perfect place to mount the shift light and is angled perfectly at the driver and not blocked by the steering wheel.

The screw on the right, will not work. This will save some effort and prevent you from drilling any holes.

Thanks for the idea.I'm going to get a shift light soon but I have been holding off on which brand.I read a couple of threads about CEL's being lit by the Raptor.I like the Raptor but not the CEL's.Repost when you have your's installed and tell us how it works.

Well he bought my shift light which was throwing the code P1233 "Fuel Pump Disabled" on my car. And last I talked to him he got it hooked up and it DID NOT throw a code :wallbash: So I have no idea why it threw one on mine. I really want another one too lol

Could it have anything to do with the wire chosen for the switched 12v supply?These ECM's are plenty sensitive and maybe they got a weird signal and figured it meant the fuel pump was at fault????I hate electrical gremlins and try to avoid 'em at any cost.This is why I'm checking all possible sources for all info before buying.

It is installed and seems to work fine. No SES, although I have only driven it a few miles. This is the same, exact light that csledd had.

That's what we thought too, but it was hooked up into the exact same 12v line everyone else was hooking into, so why throw a code on my car?
