Just Recieved my Ultragauge
« on: July 03, 2012, 07:15:55 AM »
As the title says just Recieved my new ultragauge
What a great piece of equipment
I've installed it into a turbo Ford Falcon 4 liter straight 6
Only issue I have come up against is the water temp reads a constant -40 c
Not sure what I have done wrong
The boost gauge, volt meter, intake temp all seems to work fine
Can't wait to play around a little more and discover what else I can monitor

A value of -40C is the lowest value possible and means that the ECU is responding with a value of 0.
Must be a bug in the vehicle's ECU firmware.
One thing you might try is to re-discover in safe mode as opposed to enhanced mode.  The gauge may be phantom and not really there.

Just tried the Safe start up mode and unfortunately that didn't work either it still reads -40C :'(
Looks like I just have to use the analog one on the dash board  ;)
