other quesiton is:

The gauge has 3 wires, power, gorund and a purple one. I assumed the purple would be the reader one but cant i jsut hook that into the same place as the power?? i tested the gauge with my PC but when i hooek the purple wire into the same place as the power the needle didnt move. Any ideas smile thumbsup

I would think the third wire is to dim it for night use. If it is set right, the less the voltage in the night wire, the dimmer the light.

The unit should be hermeticly sealed. no way to open it without grinding the edges, then separate the halves.
