Trans temp gauge not working

I bought a matching Isspro trans temp gauge to go with my Pyro and boost.

Its an EV1 gauge. I put the probe in the threaded trans plug and mounted the sender on my firewall. I havn't had the gauge in the truck though until yesterday because I didn't have a big enough pillar. The lights and everything work on the gauge, but it hasn't moved off of 100 since I put it in. It's been about 10* F lately but truck has been in the shop before driving so surly the transmission can't be 100* after 10 miles.

Does anyone have any ideas? Should I contact Isspro or diesel manor? (the place I bought it from)

Youd be surprised at how long it sometimes takes. Before going any further, I'd run it longer than just 10 miles and rule out a cold trans.

I doubt there is anything wrong. With that temp and an empty truck it may never come off 100. Hook a trailer to it and make a run

Usually Your trans temp gauge will not read until it's over 30 degrees outside, and that's after driving it for a good 20 min. Probably nothing wrong with it. I have the exact same TT gauge in my 2001 and it seldom reads at all this time of year.

If you drove only 10 miles with that temp being outside your transmission is still cold, I have a 6.0L cooler and when the temp is in the 40's outside it takes awhile too reach 100*.

Well, thanks for the input guys, The truck was in a nice warm shop all night then immediatly started driving so I figured that the trans would warm right up.

Its about 70* in the shop, so I suppose the transmission would have to raise 30* to even register on the gauge? That wouldn't happen in 10 miles?

You guys are probably right though. Maybe I will plug in my transmission pan heater tonight and see if I can get it to register on the gauge.


But thanks again.

Mine does the same thing. I have a relatively short commute to work and it rarely ever moves over 100* unless I am driving really hard.
