center gauges question
#1
I was changing all my dash bulbs to LED when I remembered that the TEMP gauge in the center pod did not seem to work so I thought I would check the wiring.

Both the TEMP and OIL wiring seems to be backward. The TEMP gauge has the red/white wire on the inside post and the ground on the outer post. The OIL has the white/red wire on the outside post and the ground on the inside post. The gauge housing which has the wiring positions imprinted on it states just the opposite if I am reading it correctly. To add to my confusion, the OIL gauge still works. What is correct ??

Thanks,
John

Follow the instructions on the back of the gauge cluster.

Let me check your shorts!

OK, I think I found the problem.

My OIL gauge is on the left side of the 3 gauge pod; TEMP is on the right.

The owners manual shows them opposite of mine. That explains why the wiring was reversed (I think !!).
