Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, manufacturer and supplier of VDO OE-engineered instrumentation and replacement parts for the custom truck and car enthusiast market, now features a premium automotive grade wire harness as standard equipment in every VDO Viewline 5- and 6-gauge instrument kit.

Called the VDO Speed Harness, this new, ready-to-use wiring harness features a plug-n-play configuration that helps make installation simple and trouble-free, Continental says. Each connector features a keyed tab that only allows a one-way hookup to prevent unintended cross wiring and short circuits.

Using the Viewline single plug connector design, each gauge connection is clearly imprinted to make identification simple and straightforward, the company says. All of the gauge connectors meet at two centralized connections, each with color-coded pigtails. One connector is attached to the under-dash connections such as power, ground and turn signal, while the other connects to all of the gauge senders.

According to Jeffery Ross, VDO product manager, “In addition to giving our Viewline kit customers everything they need for a successful gauge project, we are now including a free, automotive OE-quality wire harness in every kit to help make the installation even easier. The new VDO Speed Harness is made in the U.S. with OEM grade materials. Every gauge connection is clearly marked and identified for easy hookup. The power/ground and sender wires are also color-coded for quick identification and accurate installation.”

In addition to the new Speed Harness, the VDO Viewline kits come with all required mounting accessories, matched senders (including the speedometer sender), threaded adapters, electrical connectors and easy-to-follow instructions. In addition, VDO Viewline Instrument Kits offer enthusiasts a wide choice of styles and sizes, including for street rods, muscle cars, tuners, custom vehicles and kit cars.

The new instrument kits are featured in the VDO Auto Enthusiast Gauge and Accessories Online Catalog, www.vdo-gauges.com. This interactive catalog contains the most comprehensive database of product information, specifications and details ever assembled for the legendary VDO instrument line, Continental says. It also features search capabilities covering the breadth of the line.
