Just red... Using injector positive i beleive...

No other lights turning on, using 3 pin coil.

Breaking me head trying yo figure out what might be wrong.

No other lights coming on during cranking inducates that you are not getting trigger signal from dizzy to ecu. Once you get trigger signal to ecu, you will see RPM.

I had the same issue u had bro. I'm not saying 3pin coil doesn't work coz many people has had success with it using dicktator BUT I blew 3 different hall senders wiring it that way and have had success using a e30 BMW electronic bottle coil and dicktator tp100 so far. When blowing dizzys I had connected injectors, coil and dizzy using the injector 12v. Also had minor success using the tps 5v to power the dizzy but that got the car driving for 5metres then it switched off or would break off at about 3k rpm. The only trouble free solution I've had thus far was going BMW coil plus tp100. It will cost u R200 for a 2nd hand coil and about R530 for a tp100. Worth every penny to me considering my car has been driving for the longest time since doing the build lol. Just my 2c,use it don't use it...just letting u know how I over came the same issue ur having. If there's only the red light on the dicktator chances are (n this has happened to me 3c) that uv blown the hall sender in the dizzy.

Use switched 12V from ignition for coil and dissy. Injectors power from ecu.

Coil and Dizzy Working Perfectly, unfortunately had no time to retest, i believe the issue might be with the relay or somewhere with the wiring.

Good to hear dissy and coil is fine. You’ll get this sorted. Just recheck all wiring.

Managed to sort out the issue... Dizzy signal picked up.

However i have a new issue... Dicktator red light is off when cranking? To my limited knowledge this should not be the case?

Any idea what can be wrong? Rechecked all wires everything seems couture...

The dicktator isn't getting enough power then. Is it connected straight to the battery and is the battery fully charged?

Thick red wire connect to 12vpositive terminal on battery, thick black connect direct to batery negative terminal. The thin red ignition wire beed to connect to switched 12v. Try finding the old 12v coil wire ( think it is black ir black red stripe) or acc switched wire. I found a black switched wire at fusebox and used that. Red light must stay on during cranking.
