This makes good sense if you can find that sensor, and ensure it's not used by the rest of the engine management. I don't know enough about Trionic and late model 900's to say, so ask a mechanic, or e-mail Ywan Mason. But I think the simpler alternative is to find the 5th gear switch on the transmission. Every car has one, and I could point you right to it on a classic 900, but again, you need someone who knows the next generation. If you jumper across the contacts leading to this switch, the shift-up circuit always sees 5th gear, ergo no light. Bill Ward
