Red will, in 99% of cases, be 12v+... green in 99% of cases will be tach signal...

Better of finding a source which comes on with ignition... if not fused, put one in.

Probably easier to just run it to a clean bit of chassis...

As we discussed, im pretty sure that's tach... anyone else care to comment? I think theres a few places to source this signal from...

This is the power system that runs the dash lights. An easy one to 'tap' into is the ashtray illumination... pull out the stereo surround to get to it. You'll need to figure out which wire is +ve...
