So what did ^^^^^^this^^^^^^^^ mean? If you have power on one side of an ammeter and not the other then the gauge is toast providing it has an internal shunt, and if external, then the shunt is fried. There is no more to this story. A test light will show this up easily. The question is if it is an internal shunt or not. I suspect after looking at the diagram that it is an external shunt. Yellow wire #37 in the diagram. There still is really only one path and that is through the yellow wire. I am suprised that they used a heavy wire to the gauge itself if it is an external shunt. OP, I hope you are watching this.Actually you should only get power to one terminal of the gauge at a time.
This is your OP speaking Nucleus. By the way, what does OP mean?...Other Person? Other Party? or Outside Party?...Please clarify. I was waiting for the mud to settle before speaking with you.Averagesupernova
The OP has not answered any of my questions so I doubt he/she has even read them. I feel like I am talking to myself!
Averagesupernova and/or Nucleus,Averagesupernova,
How do you bypass the ammeter making my car work like it has a new guage? (posted in your 2nd last message at 4:03 AM)
This is the wiring setup to the alternator guage and the oil pressure guage as it stands now.
1) ALTERNATOR GUAGE: Looking at the back of the guage in a normal upright position -
Left lug/post = small red and pale violet wire Right lug/post = heavy duty "live" black wire
Bottom lug post = a ground wire
2) OIL PRESSURE GUAGE: Looking at the back of the guage in a normal upright
Left lug/post= heavy duty black wire Right lug/post = small black wire
Bottom lug/post = a ground wire
Is this setup correct?
