Glowshift Pyro problem?

Hey im just seeing if anyone else has an issue with their glowshift pyro.
i have the 3 in 1 diesel combo gauges (boost on the needle, pyro and engine temp on digital read out) and my EGT's get hotter than usual, now this has happened to me before and glowshift replaced it under warranty as it seemed to be a faulty pyrometer prob. so with that being said i think its on the fritz again... im just seeing what people are haveing/had issues before. has anyone replaced the pyrometer with a different brand?? and do you think wiring in a different pyro, such as (autometer, bullydog , etc ) would work with a digital setup ? if so please discuss thanks-

mine will randomly peg 1500 then fall to 0 then back to what the actually EGTs are. usually smack it and it straightens out.

Sounds like bad grounds perhaps.

Mine would give me the correct temp every once in a while and then drop off. Wasnt a bad ground or sender, just a bad gauge itself. Wound up graduating to autometer, I know there expensive but as soon as anyone can afford it I would reccomend getting nice gauges such as autometer or isspro, glowshifts are kind of a temporary thing for me.

I had glowshifts for a while the pyro kept going all over the place I replaced it with a new one and two months later all three started to peg out so I said screw it and got autometers I wish I would have done autometers the first time I love them I think the pyro is more accurate and the quality is so much better than glowshift just my opinion.

I had this happen once with my pyro and my trans temp, try checking the grounds and/or moving it to a different ground location. It fixed it for me.

Grounds do cause some problems when not good
