Insight question?

Just installed my insight with EGT probe but the screen reads EGT N/A. What did I do wrong?

There are two egts. Try the one under the Temperature (the first tree). There is also one under Ford then under Air. I almost positive you need to use the one under Temperature.

if you have the setup on say the quad display and EGT is one of the 4 parameters you are monitoring and the pyro isnt plugged in, you need to set the EGT to something different (anything but EGT) turn the truck on, then after you have done this, you can switch back to EGT and it should read just fine.

Also, don't mean to hi-jack, but can those who use the Insight tell me what you see for Mod Volts? I see between 11.2v -12.2v at initial start up for as long as 56 seconds, then between 13.5v -13.7v during normal driving thereafter. Are these normal readings...can you help me compare?

those volts are about normal IMHO, as soon as I start my truck they volts are around 11ish, by the time I am rolling is 13.5
