Default gauge installed and small issue

Got a prosport gauge recently. Wired it up got it all taken care of and it works, butttttt it's super dim on the amber setting during the day. Is this the gauge or do I not have the wires connected well enough. Or not grounded well enough. I don't know thought I'd ask see if anyone has had a similar issue

Is it their smoked lense? I had the smoked one and could never see it during the day. And it was wired correctly.

I got one of the smoked ones years ago. Ended up taking off the bezel and replacing it with a clear piece of plastic. You can take a dull knife and get behind the alum bezel and bend it away from the plastic housing, then the bezel and lens just fall out. To install a new, clear lens, just put it in place and run the dull knife or spoon around the back of the bezel pushing it down. Its pretty soft and malleable so just go slow and it will be easy.

Your best bet it just to throw that Projunk in the **** can though. Them things are cheap for a reason. I used to have to reset it by rapping the sensor with the heavy end of a screwdriver at least 4 times a year. Good Luck
