EGT Gauge

My EGT gauge is not working correctly. Instead of have some hole in my pillar while i send it back i wanted to make sure it wasnt my probe.

It works great under 600 degrees. over 600 it pegs out at 1500 degrees or bounces around alittle.

any thoughts? Wiring is pretty straight i did alot of tape on the 3 inches of exposed wires and the rest of the wire has a tube over it.

Any ideas wwould be great. Thanks!

Yea has to be a wiring problem. Unless you did just happen to get a bad sending unit

I've had to replace the probes in a couple trucks because they were acting up. Edge probes go out alot, I know yours isn't Edge just saying I wouldn't worry to much. Install new probe you'll be good as new I'll bet.
