Oil temp/airfuel gauge installation
Hey guys I baught an APC power glo oil temp gauge and I'm lost to how to hook up the wires there are 4 spots for wires 1. sender(I know this goes to the drain plug) 2. ignition switch 3. dash light circuit and 4 ground. so where do I find the iginition switch, do I put it on the fuse or what and wher do I find the dash light circuit? Also I have an Air/fuel gauge I think I'm suppose to install it on my O2 sensor if I'm right which one do I install it in? I would use the directions that came w/ them but they are shit and don't give me any information. I would appreciate this help guys, I'm trying to get this dash project going as fast as possilble

Thanks alot

for the oil temp gauge, you can hook up the ignition switch to the red wire that is connected to the cigarette lighter. the ground can be anywhere that is connected to the chasis and I'm not too sure about the dash light. The a/f gauge can be hooked up to the blue wire near the passender center console. The wire is located coming down the center console, behind the carpet. Hope this helped.

ps. remember to put a 5 amp fuse on the ignition switch for the oil gauge and the a/f gauge.

suppoesdly you should use the blue wire closet to the front of the car for the a/f ratio gauge, but i have not tried it myself.

Wait, so you can install the sender where the drain plug goes? Is it just another piece that substitutes the drain plug?

I thought you had to drill into the oil pan to install the sensor, but if you could just use the oil drain plug, that would be awesome.

It's an adapter that fits into the current oil pressure valve.
