    Please don't kill me because I'm posting up this thread...

    Ok so these three people or more know I've asked this ten times.

    I've been trying to hook up my water temp gauge for a couple days ago. I've never done or have seen this done. I bought a auto meter water temp. gauge... this basic electric one.

    What I don't understand ( which dave,decker,tyler have told me many of times) what is reading the damn temp? What came in the box.... a gauge... a light bulb and wire to hook it up... couple of metal things for God knows what.

    Am I missing something that reads the temp? I have extra electric wire that I bought... I just don't understand this basic thing.


    I was told to find the old stock one and replace it but with what... ok I'll shut up I don't even know what else to ask thats how stupid I am... I've tried looking it up and reading the instructions too by the way for you crazy ass people who will scream that at me.

    HeLP?

    you need a autometer water temp sending unit. I had to buy one seperately for my water temp guage on my bike. Most of the aftermarket guages that I have seen wont run on the stock sensor because of different voltage outputs(I.E. it will read an incorrect temp)

    they should sell one or see if the one you have willl support OEM temp sensors.

    Yep, they should come with the sensor. It a little brass sensor that should screw into the same hole as the stock black sensor.

    Also, sensors vary in resistance. Not voltage.

    So... I feel better about it. Now where am I going to stick it... I thought i found the stock one on the throttle mani. side. I saw to little plugs. One kinda looking red and a smaller one plug black one right next to each other. but it just snaps on and off and its very hard to get to. is that the right part? I'll take pictures if needed.

    It doesn't screw in the stock one.. its a different thread line and its a tad smaller then the stock one... Should I just JB weld that bitch in?

    If no...

    Then where can I get the adapter from? An auto zone or advance? Something like that?

    I do not believe it just threads in, i have never seen that, unless you force it. Do not use JBweld, it doesn't hold up that well with hot coolant sometimes and that's just ghetto man.

    Get a radiator hose adapter, or like a million other people do, drill and tap a whole in the water neck if you have an SR, KA just use the radiator hose adapter. That will be the easiest thing for you to use.

    Nissan is JAP

    Autometer is USA
