Re: electrical problem in CJ
Thanks for the info, I actually already read your page about the gauges...How could I have fried my gauges? I just assumed that if I hooked it directly to ground than it would be no different, I thought a ground was a ground and the way the voltage was regulated was through the power lead? Is this correct or not? Anyway, if I have ground at the gauge as well as the sending unit wire, shouldn't the gauge work unless its a bad gauge? I tried to short it out like your page indicates and I only got it to move to like 1/2 full once. I'm not sure if I was doing it right however, so I should probably do it again when I get a chance...Any other suggestions? I really don't want to get the SW gauges because they are $80 for the fuel and temp, and I am not even using the temp because I have a mechanical temp and oil gauge. What are the chances of getting a used gauge that works? Is burning up the gauge common?
