Finished the gauges, now Q's...

Well I got my gauges in last night. My friends did them for me since I dont know exactly what im doing yet . the pyro is reading correctly and same with the boost but the trans temp dont move. the needle jumps a little when i turn the key but the gauge never reads anything close to 100. I crawled under and felt the probe and it felt at least 100. any ideas?

The little box might not be getting power. It has to have 12v of juice going to it to work. I'm not sure what it's called, but I know that little box takes the signal from the probe and turns it into a useful signal for the gauge.

boost seems low, unless you dont have a programer. also. I had to heat my trans up with a torch for a bit to get it to read, then it worked fine.... also it takes some driving to get your trans to heat up.

my tranny temp gauge naver moves unless im pulling a loaded trailer. But the lowest reading on my isspro gauge in 140 degrees. also 15 psi boost for a stock 7.3 is pretty normal.

i dont know if i am the only one that had to do this, but i couldnt get mine to move intill i torched it... and one of my buddies had the same thing. but my gauge starts at zero. so it moves pretty quickly now.

frankly though guys if the gauge never moves...especially those where the minimum setting is 140...thats a good thing...means your tranny stays cool.

mine starts at 100 and it only moves to like 110 or less. And I gotta be on a highway for that to happen. And I only see 16psi with an empty bed, no programmer. On cruise on 75mph with a loaded up 32ft 5th wheel it hit 20. Stock turbo and everything. That was before the S&B intake and wastegate delete mod if it makes any difference I dunno.
