It's transmission fluid temperature.... When towing I've seen mine as high as 210, but can't remember what it normally runs...

I've seen almost 220 last weekend while driving on the beach. Normally I'm at 165-175

If you are driving without the torque converter locked (like on the beach, or pulling a heavy trailer slowly) it will heat the fluid up way more than cruising down the highway. 220 is a little hotter than I really want to see it, personally. I have my alarm set at 220. On a hot day (any day in south texas) my temp runs about 180-190.

thats what my alarm is set at as well but there really wasn't much I could do about it since I needed to get where I was going.

When you click on the gauge, then click on "assign signal", it gives you "transmission fluid temp", "coolant flood temp", "exhaust gas temp"......etc. It is only abbreviated on the actual gauges. No abbreviations when assigning signals(picking out which gauges you want to run).
