Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the XUV 550? Specifically I'm looking for the wiring relating to the hour meter (AM142727) and what it requires to activate the timer of the hour meter.

In case you don't read the whole forum I've hacked my Gator and installed a Honda engine which required a bit of rewiring. My hour meter turns on and displays the hours and the seat belt and parking brake light still work but it no longer records engine time.

The hour meter uses a sense wire tied to the ignition coil primary circuit. Time accumulates on the display as long as the meter detects a continuous string of ignition pulses from the running engine

Thank you very much for the diagram and explanation.

I wonder if a wire wrapped around a spark plug lead will induce enough current to activate the hour meter? Time to do some experimenting.
