    I had a B&M Hammer ratchet shifter put in the car Dec 2012. My mechanic wasn't sure how to wire up the gear indicator. No biggie.. So for over a year I have no gear indicator that lights up, and I'm used to it I don't need it. But I want it to be fully functional. What do I wire the gear indicator light up too? Is there a bulb that lights up? I would swap it for a blue bulb to match my gauges and dome light. [MENTION=15502]Ferocious[/MENTION] do you remember how you wired yours up?

    The B&M should come with provided wires for you to work with. You have to find a 12v supply with the ignition switch on.
    I believe I used the wire from the radio and spliced into that for power.
