glow shift guage

Put a fuel pressure guage on truck today and will not read pressure
Checked all wires and still reads zero. I have red wire going to fuse panel for a switched
Hot and yellow going to factory trailer plug for opened hot and black going to ground. Green going to sending unit on g side and ground on m side. Everything works lights up and remembers color light but reads zero. When I turn key on it goes to 100 then to 0 then when I start it. It stays at 0. Any ideas. The sending unit sits very close to the top radiator hose.

Ran into the same thing. Make sure you use a tester and find a source that has a true 12 volt switched and unswitched source.They do have good customer service.

Thats the voltage you will see with it running. that variation in voltage wont do anything.

Where did you find a switched 12 volt source in the fuse box? I checked every open connector and none were switched power. there were three constant power sources on the left side of the box but i had to tap into a wire on the backside of the fuse block for switched.

I just did this last night. I used a red wire with green stripe for switched.

On the right side fuse book said customer access. I tested it and only had power with key on. Will check again. Had a 10 amp fues number 29 on fues block.
