VSS wiring

I bought a harness kit from American Autowire which includes the VSS for the trans but the instructions don't say if polarity matters out of the VSS. I will call them next week but it is the weekend and was wondering if anyone knows if the polarity at the switch matters. I have a signal and ground wire going from the dash to the VSS on the trans and then the VSS has a black and tan wire. I'm assuming the black is the ground.

Agree?

Thanks,
Paul

Re: VSS wiring

I have the same aaw kit and a T56. Purple goes to signal on the guage, yellow to ground. Scott

Re: VSS wiring

Thanks Scott,
I've got the wiring on the back of the gauge. What I was wondering is the wiring to the unit that mounts into the trans.

Re: VSS wiring

I talked to AAW and Purple goes to Black. Yellow to White.
