Can you give us some more details on what Dakota product you are installing?
Also, is this for an Si or r18 application?

You should be able to use a multimeter to easily eliminate the power and ground leaving you with the signal wire. I'm not sure the colors

There's 3 wires coming from the sensor. Signal, power, and ground. Cut the signal wire, send it to the box (input), and then send a wire from the box (output) back to the sensor.

No, I believe you have to send the signal from the box back to the harness. Let me ask about the ground wires tho. I do have ground wires to the box.

Not exactly sure what you mean here. What @15WhiteSi was saying is the the signal wire on the vss is the only wire you need. Cut the wire and run the signal from the vss sensor to the input on the Dakota, then run the output on the Dakota to the other side of the wire you cut (this feeds the ecu).

I looked briefly at the manual for the Dakota and it looks pretty advanced so I cant say for sure how it is to be wired. Have you tried contacting dakota?

I quote "there's 4 wires you need in total; signal in/out, switched power with ignition, and ground can be taken from anywhere on the body that has connection with battery ground."
