And no worries! It helps to know what you're buying when you spend half a G, and there's no industry where it's harder to be sure about that than cars.

Based on the above, do I have the requisite wiring to support what I want to do? Also, not wanting to regurgitate information already posted somewhere, would you be aware of a useful post / thread that I should review to understand more about what is a MULF or a combobox?

Once again, many thanks for all your help.
