Smiths 12V Analog Clock Install - Mx-5 Nb1

14 April 2020 - 04:19 PM

Hello lasses and lads !

 

My name is Arnaud, I'm new to the forum.

 

I own a 1998 MX-5 NB in Evolution Orange Mica. 

 

I am currently doing a makeover of the interior to give it that sweet sweet 60's/70's British roadster style.

 

I want to install a Smiths analog clock (it has a light in it as well) in place of the OEM digital clock currently in the car. 

 

There will be a bunch of soldering to do in order to get the new clock working like the OEM one.

 

My question was : what wires do I need to feed into the clock ? This is the install information I found on Smiths' website : 

 

https://www.caigauge...c-clock-482.pdf (it's the 52mm with metal case one)

 

I also found this information from Jack58 about what the wires on the OEM clock are on another thread here :

 

Black = Earth

Grey/red = +ve from light dimmer
red/black = +ve light
Blue/black = +ve ignition
Blue/red = Permanant live

 

Can someone tell me which wire I would need to feed into the Smiths clock and where to ground it ?

 

Thank you so much !

 

Stay safe with the whole Covid-19 thing !

 

Best wishes from France,

Arnaud
