How can a LM2917-8 be used to create an "Engine Running Only" circuit?

But That was with a meter that measured average not peak voltage.
Gotcha, I used the same meter to test output of my pickup and the function generator. Since I only "saw" 7 volts I assumed that was all it was putting out. I set the meter to record Min & Max and that's where I got my range of 6.69-7.14 on the pickup. I haven't done that with the function generator.

It's been a couple decades since I took a basic electrical course and I'm trying to remember how things work. I've had a lot of questions, read a bunch and all that seems to do is cause more questions. Glad I found this place to help me out. Thanks for everything so far!
