A shift light indicates when the driver of an automobile should shift gears, removing the need to look at the instrument panel. An LED shift light is just as bright or brighter as an incandescent light, but is much more efficient. Installation is a simple process. Doing it yourself will save you the technician's fees.

Find a place to mount your shift light. The dashboard and the steering column are both good places because they allow you to use your peripheral vision.
Mount it according to the installation manual. This will probably mean using either the built-in adhesive or using the supplied screws.
Slide the connectors onto the black and red cables and attach the forked terminals.
Attach the power (red) cable to the slot over the ACC connection in the fuse box. Put the fuse in the ACC slot.
Attach the ground (black) cable to a bolt under the driver's seat to ground the light.
Slit the rubber engine grommet under the dashboard with the knife. Run the green wire through the slit into the engine compartment.
Find the blue signal wire that has been terminated. Connect them with the quick splice.
