WOW!! - :surprise:

Those look fantastic. Clean installation, too. Thanks for posting night pics that show the brightness of the gauges. They look very easy to read.

Great improvement!!

was it REALLY 91 degrees? Or do the digital gauges just display the incorrect temp the same as the analog gauge did?

No...had it running in the garage. Not happy with the location I put the sensor.

Going to tweak it a bit tomorrow.

It's GOOD that it comes with its own temp sensor, instead of relying on the info from the OEM sensor; and moots whether its the OEM sensor or OEM gauge that results in the (always) inaccurate temp reading - HA! (My OAT gauge is always WAAAYY off).

Cheers, Carl

Yep... moved the sensor this morning and took her for a spin. Pretty much spot on now. It was around 61 or 62 this morning and that’s what it was showing.

Where did you re-locate the sensor? I tried moving the stock sensor, with some improvement, but still not what I want to see.

It's basically in the same area as the stock sensor just more towards the passenger side.... I assume the stock sensor is dual purpose feeding the DIC and the floor gauge.

The DIC seems to be more accurate then the floor gauge. It knew it was icy a few months back.

So, without my digging out my Service Manuals, just about where is the stock sensor located. I just might have to opt for these digital gauges. Looks very nice and the stock gauges don't really do much for me.

P.S. You need to bump the radio clock one minute so as to "sync" the time it shows in (Pic 2) with the new gauge.:grin2::wink2:

The sensor for the temperature is in front of the radiator, just below the upper crossmember. Look under the bowtie.
