        My shift light has started intermittently not flashing at the set rpm. It still reads the rpms on the side though, so I know it must mean there's something faulty inside the shift light itself. It worked fine for the past month since I got it installed. Is there a way to disconnect the wire and fix it? I don't want to have to re-install the wiring and everything.

        Is it able to be set up for launching, and more then one shift points?

        • Yes, the MSD Programmable Digital Shift Light can be programmed for multiple different shift points.

        This Shift Light has worked great since I installed it. Is there any way to add a Sound Alert to this. I react better to sound than light and think that this may cut my ET's.

        • The MSD Programmable Digital Shift Light does not have an audible output.

            Waste of money

            I had mine installed by a mechanic a month ago. It worked fine for the past month, but recently it has developed an intermittent issue were the light does not flash, even though it's still reading rpms. I've had $20 shift lights before that never missed a beat. This one should last a lifetime for the money spent! Waste of time and money!

            MSD Shift Light

            Quality MSD product. Programming was a little tricky ... I set it for 8 cylinders, but it was actually only connected to 1. After the program change it works perfectly. It is easy to see and looks great on the dash. I like it's compact size also.

            Just put my msd shift light in no problem, the hardest part is running the wires through the grommet in the fire wall only took an hour and a half total, very pleased with how it went.

            Few things.

            The display on the side dims, the shift light doesn't seam to dim much. Every time you put power to the unit it flashes 21 times and it's a very bright light at night. If they made covers for the shift light it would be helpful. Autometer light covers might work.

            small and effective

            Purchased this for my wife's car that I recently finished building. She is not an experienced Drag racer, and was hitting the rev limiter in her shifts. This allowed me to set the shift points for 1-4th gears independently, and now she is banging gears like she has been racing all her life. it is small and compact and mounted perfectly above her gauges in her pillar mount pod. programming it was the longest part of the install. it could be priced a little lower though.

            digital shift light

            very easy to install you only have to connect one wire to any coil lead and on the inside add a positive and a ground to switched positive. the unit works just like they say. the lead that goes to the coil does not have to be cut. the inducktive pickup just pass the wire in the hole of pickup and it will work.

            Love it!!!!

            I fabricated a harness and mount the light to a suction cup which I place on the windshield. This way the car looks stock when not in use at the track. Love the inductive pick up rather than having to splice.

            It's Really Bright

            This shift light could not have been any simpler to install. Three wires(power, ground and sensor) are all that need to be routed and connected. I used 3M tape to mount the bracket on top of the dash by the a piller and drilled no holes. I have the brightness setting at "1" and put a white plastic cap over the lights to dim it down to where I want the brightness. It works as advertised. I almost didn't buy this light because others had indicated that the mounting bracket was weak and a piece of trash, I have found those reviews not to be true. The bracket is designed to "slide" the light into it, not "snap" the light into it.
