How to Install Derale Transmission Temperature Gauge Kit # D13009


I purchase a transmission filter kit stock number 13091. A question on the meter D13009B. On the back of the meter there is a +, I am sure this is 12v in and a Sinch I assume this is the sensor input? Does the meter need a ground connection? What gauge wire do you recommend? How far from the sending unit can the meter be mounted? Thanks for your help!!


Expert Reply:

The + sign on the right-hand terminal on the Derale Transmission Temperature Gauge # D13009 is for connection to an ignition-controlled 12V power source. The middle terminal connects to a chassis ground. Both connections require 18-gauge wire. The left-hand "S" terminal is for the sensor, as you noted, and its wire can be as long as needed (within reason!) to reach from the sensor to the gauge.

The written installation instructions are linked at right for your reference.
