  • good with electrics???

    just after some help

    i fitted a boost gauge yesterday and it stays on for about 5 mins after i've taken my key out the ignition. i used a fluke and checked the voltage and its holding about 3 volts for the 5 minutes

    can i just use a resistor and stop the 3volts from getting to the gauge and keeping it on, but when i turn the ignition on it's able to get enough voltage to power the gauge?

    hope this makes sense

      Alright dean, what is the power feed off of? A resister should solve your problem though, youll have to try a few different resistances though i would think. Is it just staying illuminated?

          A led is a good way to disapate power, .

            where have you took the feed from? look for a black (ign switched live) that will do the trick, took mine off the headlight switch plug
