I'm looking for a few wires to get my gauges working again. It's a 95 yj which wires are for the oil pressure gauge the temp gauge and the volt gauge. This is where I'm looking to splice in at any help would be appreciated

Thanks I'll take a look at it after work. Almost done with my 347 swap abd the wiring is proving to be very annoying.

You can use the pdf and search on the wiring color abreviations to nail it down.

This plug is under the dash;




Circuit G60 is your oil pressure gauge
Circuit G20 is you temp gauge

Ooops dinner time!!

The voltage gauge seems to gets power from fuse #9 in the fuse box under the dash.




I have to assume the other side of the gauge receives a resistance value from the temperature sending unit.

That seems to be a DKBL/WT wire that comes through the right plug in your picture. Pin is three rows down and three rows in. It is possible that it is a double crimped wire pin.

My gauge is receiving a signal but now it just pegs out the second I go to start my jeep. The sensor pigtail has one white wire with a orange tracer and a black wire with a light blue tracer. Which wire should go to the oil pressure gauge. Which is gray with a yellow tracer. My original plug was a 1 wire sensor if that matters the new one is a 2 wire sensor.

You have a two wire oil pressure gauge sending unit? I do believe that it is supposed to be a case grounded one wire unit.

Circuit G60 = gy/yl for oil gauge


That information was already posted above.

OEM # 5602 6779

What's the difference between the two? The one I have now is the same style the jeep came with and the one that is being suggested was not on my old 2.5l.

If your oil sending unit has one pin on the back of it pull the 2 wire adapter plug or whatever it is and hook it up to that G60 circuit wire I mention earlier...
