The Tremec T-56 Magnum transmission comes equipped with 3 electronic connections that control the vehicle speedometer output, reverse lock out, and reverse lights. If you are using the T-56 Magnum in conjunction with a GM connect and cruise package or utilizing an electronic speedometer from companies such as: Classic Instruments, Auto Meter, or Dakota Digital you will will be able to program the outputs to the needed pulse count as well as control the parameters of the reverse lock out all from the Bluetooth enabled smart phone app.
The Tremec T-56 Magnum All-in-One Harness utilizes a small, built in, epoxy sealed box that will control each of the 3 functions with power and grounding for each function through a switched +12v circuit and a wire connected to the negative battery post or engine block. Control of the reverse lockout solenoid is based on a user defined speed setting (Default is set at locked above 4 MPH and unlocked at 0-3 MPH) This eliminates the need for a separate lock out control box which is currently the only option to activate the reverse lock out correctly. It is common for most folks to just simply connect their lock out solenoid to a momentary on/off switch such as the brake light switch to activate. This method will get the job done, but can over work the solenoid, and over time shorten its life span. For your electronic speedometer, the harness is equipped with 2 speed sensor outputs; the speed sensor outputs generate a square wave signal that goes from about -5 to roughly +5 volts, varying in frequency as the speed changes. But, you say, my ECM input needs a positive only signal. No problem! The output will automatically shift and give you 0 to +10 volts. The 2 speed sensor outputs are completely independent and can be calibrated separately with any pulse count and ratio you want. So, these two outputs should pretty much be able to drive any common speedometer, cruise control, or ECM. This will give you much greater flexibility in the components you are able to use and requires less time wiring everything up. The reverse lights are powered by a single output wire connected to the positive side of your reverse lights; grounding of those lights should be local to the bulb socket. There is no easier solution for setting up your Tremec T-56 Magnum transmission!
