1997 mercury grand marquis

I am wanting to install a tach in my new car. I know what the wires on the tach do and how I need ti wire it up in the car. the only problem I have is I am not sure which wire on the coil is the negative. My old 77 ford truck was easy to do. but does any body know on this car ? please.
