I'm not sure about oil temperature (probably has one with a sender somewhere) but engine temp/coolant temp is definitely available. It's an ODBII parameter, and it feeds the dashboard, so the wiring should be readily available.Originally posted by: DgnZCoug
what about engine temp or oil temp? do those have a wire we can tap into? I have two temp gauges not doing anything at home....
Just tap it to your ignition wire, or to the radio power line, or to the cigarette lighter... basically any 12v source in the car that doesn't see a serious drop in power due to drain by a device. Then ground the other wire to a ground point.Originally posted by: SubNoiseRat
how easy is a volt meter to hook up?
My entire gauge cluster is aftermarket, from Dakota Digital. The water temperature sender is still the factory piece. It works perfectly.Your "water temp" gauge and the "engine temp" gauge are the same thing. It's easy. The sender is located directly underneat the air intake on the upper manifold. I just ran a new wire directly from there to my Dakota Digital gauge cluster brain.
