Question AIS install question. AIS owners???

I just got my new AIS intake system delivered today and I noticed there is a grey sensor posted in the back of the intake box. I don't remember seeing a wire and connector that hooks into this sensor and I wanted to know if it's okay to just run it without this sensor being connected???

Also, is there a wire and connector that hooks into the filter minder as well? if so, Is it okay to run this also without hooking it up?

Thanks

The grey sensor that your seeing is your Intake air temp sensor, your old air box should of had on in it also. And i'm not sure about hookin up the filter minder, mine is hooked up and i never unhooked it. But if you do leave it unhooked it wouldn't hurt anything just maybe trip the filter restriction light on the dash.

[QUOTE=E'sStrokr01;2019708]The filter minder or the air temp sensor? Or both?

Well i have never taken off the filter change reminder button, but when I take off the air temp sensor I dont think it does anything.

Question

Correct.

My question is: Is there a connection to the filter minder itself? Is there a wire that runs to the filter minder or is it just a stand alone gauge attached to the top of the air filter housing????

And finally, if there is a hookup attached to the filter minder, is it okay if it is unhooked, and is it okay if the air temp sensor is unhooked as well.

I will look again more closely but I don't believe I have any wires under the hood that would run to either of these two sensors (filter minder AND air temp sensor), and it appears at a glance that they've been hacked. I haven't been using them obviously with my CAI becuase they don't appear to be there but I wanted to be sure that it's okay to remain unhooked since the new AIS has these sensors already mounted on the box?

Sorry to be confusing and Thanks in advance.

Question

there is no wire that goes to the gauge on top of the filter lid.

If it did not have it before, it does not need it now.
I believe later model trucks had a wire that attached, all it did was turn on a dummy light on the instrument panel so you would not have to go to the huge expense and trouble of opening the hood and looking at the gauge. My '00 does not have a wire to the 'filter minder'.

Are you building this truck from scratch or something? If you unpluged a wire when you removed the old filter then you need to plug it back into the new filter, same place it came from it goes back on.
