Transmission speedo sensor wiring Question?

I'm to the point of wiring this up. Speedo is a Wire Plus round style. The sensor has 3 wires (red, black and green), I know that green is the speedo signal, and black is ground. Does the red power wire need to be connected to the ignition breaker, it seems like it would need to be for constant power when the ignition is on. The speedo has an orange wire that needs to be connected to the ignition breaker as well ( I understand that).

Maybe a stupid question, but I've never dealt with an electronic speedometer and sensor, and don't want to fry anything.

Thanks

Red goes to power.

Just be certain that the sensor you purchased is not for a later model year as some of them get 5VDC from the speedometer head rather than 12VDC from a primary power circuit.

It's a thunderheart speedometer sensor, just the basic one. I was told that it was one of the correct ones for the Wire plus speedo.

Made sense to me to hook up the red wire to the ignition breaker.

Thanks

if your speedo jumps around time to time clean the bottom of the sensor now and then of the metal dust that ends up sticking on it. from the tranny oil
