Have a Nice Day? HELP gauges don't turn OFF.

I wired 2 prosport gauges to my clock harness to test the colors and what not, everything was fine exept the gauges will not turn off when I turn the car off.

The gauges are not connected to the sensors (boost and OP sensor) they are ONLY connected to the harness of the clock pod.

What am I doing wrong? plz help thnx.

You obviously connected the gauge power to constant 12V instead of the correct accessory/switched 12V. It's easy enough to check the wires with a meter to find which is which, if you don't have a wiring diagram.

When you turn on your car if set right the clock will be on the right time. This is because the clock has a thing called the memory wire which has constant power so you dont have to set your clock every time you turn the car on. There is also a wire to the clock that powers the clock face or the read out THE NUMBERS. This comes on when you turn the key on. A better place to get power for the gauges in under your steering column at your ignition but you should buy or barrow a volt ready and see what wire losses power when you turn the car off and gets power when you turn it on. This will fix your problem.

Check gauges is different than check engine. You are going to have to diagnose what system your gauges monitor isn't functioning properly to turn it off. Alternator, Oil pressure, coolant temp, something isn't working properly. I donít know if this will work on you but try to pull the cluster out and test look at the back side for wear or damages check good and test before replace. Hope its helps.

I bet that's it. If you look on your clock pod, they are labeled just find which color is the 12v accesory and rehook them up. I made that mistake too, it's an honest one to make.
