    Autometer - Full sweep electrical fuel pressure gauge failed

    Has anyone else had an electrical fuel pressure gauge fail?

    I was going to get a replacement but they are $250!

    What failed?

    Go to autometer.com and print out A repair service form.

    I have had 5 from Glow Shift fail, so I gave up on having a FPG for now. Glow Shift gauges are cheap in price and quality.

    Re: Autometer - Full sweep electrical fuel pressure gauge failed

    Was wanting to put one on the SoGT to monitor it from the cab but opted for the mechanical $30 liquid filled and adaptor on the fuel line under the hood (bonnet).
    If a quality one for $250 fails, then I'll keep my setup.

    Yeah, I am pretty disappointed. I thought I remembered them having a lifetime warranty but I guess not. Looks like I'll be shipping it back for repair.

    Re: Autometer - Full sweep electrical fuel pressure gauge failed

    https://www.plxdevices.com/Fluid-Oil...7346002382.htm I gave $80 on sale. PLX uses VDO sendors they are around $50 and it is included . I called PLX and although the instructions say not to use them for fuel, they say a lot do and never have any trouble. I see on you can buy a sendor specifically for fuel that has the right perameters for even less(knock off).http://prosportgauges.com/performanc...re-sender.aspx otherwise https://www.summitracing.com/parts/vdo-360025/overview/

    You are selling them? For $80?

    That's cool but the issue is I want the giant 2 5/8 gauge pod hole filled and the other gauges are Phantoms. Maybe I should get a clock?

    I see, I don't know why the price swings so much. I figured you had a PLX with a DM-6. I didn't want to mount another gauge since fuel pressure along with O2 is kind of redundant. It just daisied right onto the DM-6 and I just toggle to it to check it.

    I had an old cobalt fail, I sent it in. They said they couldn't fix it. They gave me a new one for like $100 I think. And they sent my old one back. Beats buying a new one for $250+

    I was not entirely correct with a Christmas sale I got it for $89.99, but had a $12.97 shipping charge.

    Re: Autometer - Full sweep electrical fuel pressure gauge failed

    Sent it in today. $25 in shipping and packing... presumably the same to send it back and then the repair cost on top.

    Hopefully they can fix it though. Maybe I just need to ditch the guage pod and stick with my DM 6 and link up as mentioned. I just like all the lights and dials!

    Re: Autometer - Full sweep electrical fuel pressure gauge failed

    Well, slightly /topic but...

    I had some wiring issues with my gauges:

    EGT light came in with IGN.
    Greddy went off if I turned the instrument panel lights on.
    EGT gauge didn't work at all.

    So I fixed all of that and now my console lights are looking pretty good...

    As ever, there is an issue. When I turn the lights on when the IGN is on, the fuel pump primes. It's probably a ground issue but has anyone dealt with it before I dig in?
