Hey, I bought 3 gauges in preparation for track (water,oil temp and oil pressure). The oil pressure gauge is showing up zero when the car is running, i know its not zero because the motor sounds fine and the standard oil pressure light is not coming on. More information: - The lights on the gauge turns on like the other ones and the needle does the dancing sequence thing as well. - I checked with my multimeter the connection between the pressure sender and the block of the engine are transmitting electricity (connected) - With the multimeter i put it on the signal wire and the body of the car and I get a reading of 5 volts. When I turn the ignition on I get between 5 volts and 5.10 volts, but when the car is running I get 5.10 volts - the wire to the gauge is connected to the "g" on the pressure sending unit. the other connection is "wk" and i read that that's to replace your factory sender to light up on the dash -When i disconnect the signal wire from the gauge while it is on it stays on zero It just a cheap eBay gauge and the guy wants me to go to an electrician to check it out but i would probably cost more than just getting another gauge. Is there anything else i can test to see what is at fault?
