    Yes, when you turn the key to "ON" your gauges will power up.

    I need some help here guys.
    Ok I installed the gauges. They have power and everithing.
    But I have the water temp sensor connected and the gauge doesn't move at all. And I put the wire on metal abs it moves and go all the way up.
    But when it hits the sensor doesn't do anything. Any ideas?

    Something isn't hooked up right or it might be a faulty part.

    I'd double check all the connections and from the sending unit to the gauge. Also double check you have power at the gauges.

    The gauges have power. The light is on.
    Ground is fine. Power is fine. Is just the signal wire is the problem.
    Do I need speacial wires or anything?

    The gauge manufacture should have provided the wire needed.

    Usually the unit it's self gets grounded when installed, I guess it can vary from product to product, but it make sense that it needs to be grounded.

    The wires are short.
    I was doin some research and it says that some sensors can be ground it's self.
    But now it's pluged to the ground and it stays stock on 280 degress a d the car is cold. I plug the other sensor and still the same
