    Default Oil Pressure Sender - Wiring Diagram Question?


    TO REMOVE ADS, PLEASE
    REGISTER OR SIGN IN
    Morning,

    I am installing some gauges, one of which is oil press with one of these senders




    Now came with this diagram



    G is signal wire to gauge.
    WK is warning light/buzzer.
    This much is straight forward.
    Now there is also a green wire that comes from gauge...I'm looking at the diagram thinking it is telling me to attach/soldier green wire to the body of the sender?
    WTF, seriously, am I potato retard or is this correct?
    So I take it it earths through the body of the sender, but can't I just earth that wire to any common -ve?

    You're over thnking it... attach the green wire to the top knob.

    You'll find the guage also needs ignition power too of some sort and most likely a light too.

    Yeah, I tend to do that.
    I just think that wiring diagram needs to be a bit more accurate...I mean FFS why draw it like that?
    I have power and parker illumination sorted.
    Gauge has low oil pressure light on it, I understand it now, thanks Matt!
