NOTES:
1) This installation only intended for the Tremec T56, T56
Magnum, & TR-6060 6-Speed Transmissions. While it
may work with others, these instructions are tailored
toward these and do not address any other installations or
situations including any aftermarket add-ons or any
scenario not covered in the instructions (make sure you
read EVERYTHING – go grab a non-alcoholic beverage,
sit down and actually read it seriously, read it ALL so
you don’t screw something up). If nothing else, make
sure you read item #4 on next page (page 2) or you will
very likely damage something.

How It Works
The electronic module contains a microprocessor that
constantly monitors the vehicle speed while you are
driving. At low vehicle speeds, the reverse lockout
solenoid is energized to allow you to shift into Reverse.
At speeds above about 5 MPH (typical) the control box
de-energizes the reverse lockout solenoid, thereby
inhibiting inadvertent shifting into reverse at higher
speeds. The typical threshold speed is between 1 and 12
MPH depending on the your vehicle’s drive train gear
ratio and speed sensor configuration. The average is
around the 5 MPH mark.

NOTICES
1) This installation procedure requires some mechanical
aptitude and minimal splicing into existing vehicle wiring.
If you do not feel comfortable or do not feel you can
properly install this product, please have a professional
mechanic perform the work.
2) This installation only intended for Tremec T56 & TR6060 transmissions with 2-Wire VSS Sensors and 2-Wire
Reverse Lockout Solenoids that use a reluctor wheel in
the transmission for speed detection.

Tremec T56 & TR-6060 Reverse Lockout
Control Module Installation Instructions
Make sure the vehicle is in NEUTRAL with wheels blocked when performing this installation.
Make sure your vehicle is secure, whether elevated on jack stands or on a vehicle hoist. BE
SAFE and CAREFUL. Chock block your front tires if lifting one end. Don’t put jack stands on
soft surfaces like dirt because they will sink in and jack stands will tip, crushing you! ☺
3) Disconnect all vehicle BATTERY POSITIVE connections until CONTROLLER MODULE WIRING
INSTALLATION IS COMPLETED. SEE NOTE #4 – YOU CAN DAMAGE THE CONTROL BOX OR
YOUR VEHICLE ELECTRONICS IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS PROPERLY.
4) ****** The Black ground wire labeled “(-) NEG/GND” of the Control Box must be connected FIRST,
before other connections of the controller box are made to prevent permanent damage to the
control module or your vehicle computer. If you securely connect (-)NEG/GND of the Control Box
to vehicle ground/chassis before proceeding with any other connections, this risk is eliminated.
If you have any questions or are uncertain about anything, STOP and ask for advice or double
check whatever you are unsure about and if necessary, call Samoco Industries for support (248565-4700). Failure to properly connect the remaining wires could result in damage to either the
product or the vehicle as well. The same applies to product removal – MUST FIRST remove the
+12V Power (RED wire) to the box to disable it BEFORE disconnecting any other wires from the
box during product removal.
5) If your vehicle wiring is any different than the attached instructions show (read all pages and see
all diagrams), call us for help or do not proceed, as these instructions are not meant to cover any
other scenarios other than those outlined here.
6) Exercise caution when reconnecting the Battery Positive and restoring power – If you see or
smell any smoke coming out of the vehicle, you most likely have incorrectly connected
something.
7) Make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy whenever working around vehicles and modifying
anything that requires cutting wiring.
8) Wear eye protection when cutting, snipping or anytime you are under the vehicle. Rust, dirt and
dust can easily get into your eyes and this takes the fun out of the whole project.
9) Route all wires AWAY from exhaust system, sharp metal edges, moving parts, and avoid having
wires hang down. Tuck wiring preferably along existing vehicle wiring and attach with the
included zip ties. Allow sufficient slack in wiring for drive train movement relative to the vehicle
body.

10) We recommend you solder all connections and then use high grade shrink tube or electrical
tape.

Control Module Installation Instructions
Because this kit is used on a variety of different vehicles, the
instructions do not specify where to mount the electronic control
module (Black Box). Some prefer mounting the module under the
dash, while others behind the glove box or behind the driver’s side
kick panel. It must be installed somewhere inside the vehicle
away from the elements and somewhere out of the way where it
won’t get damaged.

The electronic control module is already fuse protected, however it
is necessary that you connect the +12V/IGN wire to an unused 10
AMP fused connection in your fuse box. This protects the red
+12V/IGN supply wire should you ever short it out against
something along the length between where our fuse is located and
3
where you make your connection to the vehicle.

Tremec T56 & TR-6060 Reverse Lockout
Control Module Installation Instructions
Using an Ohm Meter – Check Resistance Between “Negative Ground” (Chassis/Frame) And Each of the 2 Existing
Vehicle VSS wires in the vehicle harness to determine which wire is the “VSS Reference” Wire And which is the “VSS
Signal” Wire. If you have no existing vehicle wiring, skip down to #4 below
NOTES: THIS CHECK PERFORMED WITH IGNITION OFF AND VSS PLUG DISCONNECTED .
*** For these these tests, one test probe should be against vehicle metal, body ground, chassis.
1) With Ignition in OFF Position, “VSS Reference” Wire shows nearly zero resistance to ground. Typically the
resistance is about 1 Ohm with Ignition OFF (Typical). Note that if you do not turn the ignition OFF, you will not get a
proper reading.
2) “VSS Signal” Wire typically has a very high resistance to Ground (usually 60 to 200 Kilo-Ohm range – Thousands of
Ohms - Very High).
3) Remember – In 1 and 2 above we are checking the resistance of the connector terminals in the existing vehicle
harness to vehicle body ground, not the sensor itself. Sensor should be DISCONNECTED.
4) If you don’t have any wiring at all in your vehicle for this sensor, you need to add wiring for your speedometer (unless
you have a mechanical speedo kit). This kit does not address that, however it is relatively simple. Consult your vehicle
wiring diagrams for more info.
***YELLOW MODULE WIRE FROM CONTROLLER BOX CONNECTS TO THE "VSS SIGNAL” WIRE ON HARNESS
AND ONE OF THE VSS SENSOR TERMINALS AT THE VSS SENSOR
***THE OTHER VSS SENSOR TERMINAL ON VSS SENSOR CONNECTS TO EITHER THE EXISTING VEHICLE
REFERENCE HARNESS WIRE or BLUE “VSS REFERENCE” WIRE FROM THE CONTROLLER BOX YOU ARE
INSTALLING. IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY VEHICLE WIRING TO THE VSS SENSOR, YOU WILL ONLY BE
CONNECTING THE BLUE “VSS REFERENCE” WIRE FROM THE CONTROLLER BOX TO THIS VSS SENSOR
TERMINAL. AGAIN, YOU DO NOT NEED BOTH THE VSS REFERENCE WIRE FROM VEHICLE HARNESS AND THE
BLUE WIRE FROM OUR BOX TO BOTH CONNECT TO THE VSS SENSOR. IT IS REDUNDANT. OUR BLUE “VSS
REFERENCE” WIRE IS MEANT TO TAKE THE PLACE OF THE REFERENCE WIRE WHEN IT IS NOT PRESENT IN
THE VEHICLE. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE FACTORY 2 WIRE HARNESS TO THE VSS SENSOR CUT & TAPE
OUR BLUE WIRE OUT OF THE WAY IN A SAFE PLACE AND DO NOT USE IT. - See Attached Wiring Diagram For
More Info

DETERMINING WHICH WIRE IS THE VSS SIGNAL WIRE: With IGNITION OFFAND VSS CONNECTOR
DISCONNECTED, check resistance with an Ohm Meter between Vehicle Negative Body Ground and each of the two
wires that run to the VSS Sensor from the existing VSS Sensor Vehicle Wiring Harness with plug disconnected and
Ignition OFF. VSS Reference wire will have typically less than 1 Ohm resistance to ground. Ignition MUST BE IN OFF
Position or you will get an incorrect resistance reading. The VSS Signal Wire typically has a resistance in the
thousands of ohms to ground (much higher than the VSS Reference Wire). Note: If using original vehicle wiring that
includes a VSS Reference Wire, you can eliminate the Blue VSS Reference from the box connection in this kit (since
you already get the reference from the Vehicle Harness Reference Wire – Tape it securely and safely out of the way if
you aren’t using it.
