Issues with Autometer
Anyone had issues with any of their Autometer gauges in the past? Particularly the 0-1600 pyro? Mine is roughly a year old. Worked fine when I parked the truck for teardown. Now that it's back together, the gauge has started acting like it's possessed or something. It'll start climbing as normal during an acceleration, then all of a sudden jumps 200, then drops, then jumps to 1600, then the needle swings all the way to the 6:00 position. The only single part of that thing I touched when the truck was apart was the damn probe. I read a few reviews that said they've been replaced several times. Just seems weird. My last truck had one on there for 2 years trouble free. Now this one hasn't made it much over a year.
Figures...now I have the truck back together, bigger mods, bigger tunes, and the one freakin gauge I really need to keep an eye on starts acting like a tard the second time I've put the truck back on the road! That's not exactly the cheapest gauge to just start replacing over and over...and I'm not about to switch all of them for Isspro's! I'd probably get divorced, considering the amount of coin I've dropped on this thing in the past month.
