tranny gauge not moving

I installed a set of isspro gauges and the tranny gauge never moves from the 100 mark. I know it has to get hotter than that. I hooked it up as per directions. Could it be a grounding problem?

How far have you drove it it takes it awhile like 10-15 mins. of driving . Mine only gets to about 140-150 degrees its normal I remember when I first put my gauges in I thought I broke the sending unit when I installed it but everything worked.

could be a ground problem or a hot wire problem. I remember the 1st isspro gauges I intalled I did not think the "box" needed a 12v ign source, but it does.

Also where are you located as in climate wise. If its cold out then it won't go over 100 degrees unless your pulling somthing. Temps are usually 60-80 degrees over ambient temps outside without a load. I won't see mine move till spring now

It takes awhile to heat up almost 5 gal of ATF, if you live up north it may not move til spring. Did you get a gauge that started at 100 or 140? Average temps are 70-90 above ambient, the lower when unloaded and the upper when towing, so take that into consideration.
