Looking for electronic speedo wire


G'day. I am trying to install a VDO speed alert which requires the electronic speedo wire. I have the T30 series on a workshop CD. The vehicle is a 2004 ST. On the CD go to quick reference - electrical- driver information system - speedometer right hand drive model. According to the CD , plug M45 terminal 42, but I can't correspond this to my vehicle. I have 2 plastic white plugs in the back, one near the speedo with 20 wires and one behind the tacho with 7 wires, the latter doesn't affect the speedo (just warning lights). Does anyone have any experience/advice on which colour code wire would be the speedo signal? Any help appreciated, thanks...

Re: Looking for electronic speedo wire


I have the installation guide from when my cruise control was put in (by a pro). After a bit about removing the speedo binnacle, it says:
"Locate the speed signal wire (Blue/Black, in brown plug at the back of the instruments at the end, not the centre plug) and splice ... to it"
Maybe this is the clue you're looking for? I'm only guessing that the cruise control and your speed alert would be looking for the same thing and "speed signal wire" sounds close to "electronic speedo wire". I'm not an auto electrician or anything close.

Thank-you very much for your reply. Yes, I hadn't thought a cruise control system would probably require the same speed signal wire. The colour code of the wire you gave may give a bit of a clue. The only problem is I have only 2 white plugs in the back , no brown plug as yours has. I may have to seek professional advice from Nissan or auto electrician? Thanks any way.

Re: Looking for electronic speedo wire


Hi all,
I have just found the speed sensor signal for the series 2 manual ST . There are three locations. One is the ABS speed sensor, second and third are located at the Combination Meter Plug (Speedo) Pin #11 and #33. The Series 2 auto ST has one other speed signal location this is on the transmission and it is called the revolution sensor. Nissan use a voltage of 0.5v to 3.7v for these signals. Most sat-nav or speed devices require a voltage of 5 to 7 volts. So you will need to amplify the voltage.

Re: Looking for electronic speedo wire


I tried to get this signal from the back of the instrument panel (MY04 Ti Manual) and failed. Apparently there is an empty (and I mean empty, not even the metal insert!) pin on one of the connectors but I was never able to get a speed pulse from it. I also read somewhere that it would only provide a reading over 40km/h which is pretty useless for most GPS devices.

I also spoke to my local Nissan dealer's service manager about this (Brookvale Nissan, NSW) and he said that they had tried to fit a GPS system to a series II X-Trail and even sent it to a local specialist, they could not get a suitable signal from anywhere and ended up having to fit a specific speed sensor to the car.

The series I is easy, you can hook into the ECU for this but the series II is a pain.

I am considering selling my Pioneer Vehicle Dynamics Processor module because without the speed signal input a lot of the functions are not available and the speed readout is only accurate if it has good satellite locks.

Re: Looking for electronic speedo wire



I followed this interesting thread from 2004 to 2013 where it appears to end suddenly with a member asking an unanswered question. Is there a page two on this topic? I wish to fit a Terratrip rally meter electronic distance recorder for the "navigator" to play with. I used one in my GU Patrol for many years. So did anyone resolve the "looking for electronic speedo wire" issue. I have a 2008 T31 CVT.

Secondly is there any later news on disabling the annoying key-in-ignition chime after what appears to be the best option -- cutting the red wire in the right hand centre pillar?
