    I have an 06 mustang gt automatic. i am installing an oil pressure, oil temperature and water gauge in a dash pod. I have read of several different ways to wire them and wanted to post what I am planning on doing and have a couple of questions. I plan to add an add a circuit to one of the open...

    Heey guys! This weekend I'm going to do some beauty work on my Mustang. I've the inside all taped off and read to repaint. But I still haven't decided which paint to go with to repaint my needles in the gauges. I know I should use a fluorescent paint, but was just wondering if any of you guys...

    I'm thinking about getting a Dakota Digital gauge cluster for my 1965 coupe with a c4 transmission. It has a speedometer cable right now, but the digital gauges requires installation of a vehicle speed sensor (VSS) in place of the speedo cable. Is this a relatively easy thing to do, or does it...

    hey guys and girls of all ford mustangs! I have a few small problems that are going on with my 2000 V6. So let me give you a little backstory before I get to my current problems. So a few weeks ago I was noticing that my starter was struggling to turn the flywheel and start the car. I would...

    So I have a bit of a problem, just bought a mustang and I discovered my amber lights and gauges have no light. Discovered fuse #4 was blown, so I replaced it. Hit my headlight switch and it blew again, but my headlights still worked. Tested for power and got nothing. I do have 5 autometer...
  7. Superchargers+Turbochargers
    I am leaving for basic training tomorrow and getting a 2012 when I get back. My hopes are to supercharge it next year and I'm looking at the "Procharger High Output Intercooled Supercharger - Complete Kit (11-12 V6)" on AM. My only question is what else will I need to accompany this mod and what...

    I have the Prosport Evo 52mm Performance Series Blue/White gauges in a center dash gauge pod. Very happy with them except when we got out of the city lights and were cruising in the dark country I realized that they are too bright and actually hamper visibility. Especially when you are looking...

    Hey guys, first off sorry I haven't been posting for a while. I sold my car for a few months and missed it so much I traded my Harley to get it back. Anyway, on to the post. Have any of you had any recent interaction with the gauge company called Caribbean custom designs? I just ordered a set of...

    My instrument gauges are not working they light up however do not work could this be fuse related and if so which box is that in internal or under the hood.

    I wanted to change the the gauge scale from MPH to KM/H for my 2011 Mustang GT/CS so i totally changed the design in the process. I printed the 1st draft and on two layers of white gloss and transparency sheets. The gauges are very thin compared to the stock gauges so there is a light leak in...

    My 05 mustang says its overheating on the gauge. But its really not overheating. The car can sit all day i go start it up and its near the red. I replaced the temp sensor and that didnt work. I checked fuses and they are good. The only thing i could think of is that the gauge is messed up. Any...

    I am having a problem that I assume is a short. I replaced my CVR (constant voltage regulator) with an electronic version after learning from one of the forum threads (assuming this was the problem. However, my fuel and temp gauges appear to work fine until I step on the break ane then they...

    So this wideband and supercharger stuff has cost me a lot more than I expected, Im trying to cut back in places where I can. I have a procharger on my 4.0. Im getting a wideband air fuel, and a boost/vacuum. Im deciding between getting an oil pressure gauge which is half the price of a fuel...

    Just had a fresh rebuild on my 97 mustang gt. Picked it up today and my temperature gauge speedometer rpms and battery gauges are not working. Fuel and pool are. Mechanic said he's ordering new cluster but seems dumb. The **** worked befe. Any ideas?something I can fix myself? Thanks for any...
  16. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    I love my mustang GT, however there have been strange things that have happened to it. The gas gauge and tach have not worked in about 2 years. at 15,000 miles the red door panel inserts fell off. (car was out of warranty by years, not by miles.) Ford would not stand behind it. #8 cylinder...

    Hello ladies and gents. I've got a question regarding cleaning the instrument cluster. Is there anything special you guys do when cleaning?

    I'm going to add a rpm gauge to my code A to be safe and since im adding gauges what else should i add.
  19. 5.0L Tech
    My headers keep burning my speedo cable? It there a better way to run the 75" cable? Also, what color gear for the cable should be in the transmission with 3.73 gears? I have a reddish one. I think it is 19 teeth? I had a white one in but it was off and then the speedometer stopped working. It...

    I am having issues while restoring my 88 GT. The temp gauge does move but only up to the first notch when the car is running. My gas gauge is stuck at 3/4 but does move as well. The battery gauge seems to be ok and my oil pressure gauge is real low, even lower than the minimum? Could it be the...
