Hi,

I'm busy wiring my V88 into my twin turbo Dodge Dart and have a question about Autometer sensors. I want to connect my Autometer Trans Temp (electric) guage to AN Temp#3 but don't know exactly what kind of sensor to configure. Does anyone here know if I can use the standard Bosch NTC config? Or do I select a different one?

Thanks,

Alain.

I have looked on the AutoMeter website and cannot find any technical information on the sensors.

If the sensor was one in the software pick list, then both the Vipec and the AutoMeter gauge would read wrong as both the gauge and the Vipec have pullup resistors. You could use a Volt input so you only had one pullup. The gauge would also need to have a 1k to 5 volt pullup for it to read correctly.

Too many problems... Use separate sensors.

Thanks for your response Ray. I didn't know this would be such a problem. I thought I could just tap into the signal and use it for datalogging. Separate sensors is a bit difficult to do as I don't really have anywhere to mount them, so for now I think I'll just skip this.
