Damn Voltmeter won't work
okay i hooked up a voltmeter to my car. it worked for about ten minutes then it quit working. now i can't get it to read a charge on anything. i've tried the radio, rear washers, front washers, cig. lighter, and just about anything else you can think of. everything else is hooked up right as far as the back of the gauge goes. can anyone help me???

the rear of the unit should be hooked to ground, positive, and ignition right? something like that...i forget...

anyways, does your car still turn on? if so, it's the gauge itself. try undoing the wires, and re-installing them. good luck.

well it works now. the needle is sticking on the inside of the gauge. so it was working all along just not able to show up. which brings me to another question, is there any way i can adjust the inside? like take apart the gauge?

how is it stuck? if it's wedged in there, you can prob take it apart and sand down where it's wedged. if it is a bit sticky, then you should remove it w/ some adhesive remover. all in all...that is a really risky project...i say complain to the place you bought it from and get a new one. that's wacked.
