Gages do not work, new painless kit
I put a complete 12 circuit painless kit to fix any electrical nightmares I may have had with a jeep that has sat for years. I bought the painless 10110 kit. most everything works, I have 2 gages that do not.
The oil pressure gage reads 0 at all times. The kit has 1 purple wire for it, I put it to the top of the dome part of it, there is an additional switch adjacent to it with 2 prongs, and no wires for it. The dome part of it and the switch are attached to a "tee" that comes out of the block. If i remove the "tee", there is an external thread coming out of the block, i cannot remove it, to put a pressure gage there. what am I missing? is this a normal setup?
secondly, my tach does not work. it has 2 wires coming from it, i assumed one was the backlight, painless has 1 purple wire for this one also. it doesnt read no matter which wire i try. i am also TBI injected if this matters.
i would like them to work.
any tidbits would be great. thanks.
The only thing better than a Jeep, is 2 Jeeps...
