are you saying that if the car is off it is at 800 F? If you disconnect the probe does it still reads 800F?

don't know didn't try that yet. had a shop install it for me. so because it starts at 800 instead at 0 the pointer goes to the max beyond 1600 deg. F after a little driving, which in normal circumstances would be too hot. another thing manual sais the gauge is going through a self test process apon startup which lets the pointer go to the max and then come back to 0. mine only moves from 800 to like 1200 deg F and back to 800.

If you can figure out how they wired it, check all the electrical connections. Might not be properly grounded. I also had a problem grounding a gauge using the instructions provided. I had to tap into another ground wire, rather than use a bolt in order to get it to work. If a shop did it bring it back to them.

I'll probably bring it back to them to see what's up.
