Question wiring gauges question

If I wire all three gauges(oil,temp,amp)to the same fuse for power do you think that will overload the circuit and blow the fuse?

Re: wiring gauges question

boy john, having a busy day?

A single power feed for the guages is fine. I usually run it in a daisy chain, crimp the feed and a second wire both into one connector, put it on the first guage go to the second, same thing, etc.
You can also do that for the ground connection, and the illumination. Tie the illumination into the LPS terminal on the fusebox and the guages will dim when you twist the headlight knob.

Are these factory gauges or aftermarket gauges? Amp gauges are wired differently. If it is a aftermarket amp gauge, lose it and get a voltmeter.
