Egt gauge problems

For the last month or so after I was towing my buddies wheeler up to the mountains my autometer egt gauge hasn't been working properly ( incorrect readings) or not reading at all. Before the tow it was completely fine. Any ideas as to what may have happened?

Perhaps the probe broke off or failed in some way.
Check that first, then contact autometer. They're known for taking care of people

Nice truck BTW, I like the simplicity. None of that flashy crap and huge rims

I would check out the probe and the wiring going back to the gauge. You may find an issue there.

Like stated, give Autometer a call. I am sure they will help you out and take care of you.

Well checked the probe and it looked fine, checked the wiring and it looked fine as well. Guess ill be calling autometer later on this week.

Joel - thank you for the compliment on the truck, it sure has come a long way from being stock and not much for the flashy look simple is the way to keep it. If only I could find a canopy for a decent price that was color matched I'd be ecstatic! Love the look of your rig!
