ok; heres another question; I have a unt called a "fuelsaver-MPG; dual efie deluxe, tht I need to know how to hook up
Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.
sorry not familiar with that product would need to see the directions. then I could tell you how to hook it up.

your main problem is you have no power to pin 16 at the dcl connector because the fuse is blown to the cigar lighter. the fuse is in the fuse box under the dash.
