Features
Each of our Dual Gauges offer one type of analog display
coupled with a multi-digital display in one smart looking unit,
thus saving not only space but money.
Wide Range Compatible Sensor Connection Models
Like most gauges, the DS Series models are installed by wiring to
the appropriate sensor; this means greater compatibility with a wide
range of car models.

How to Connect Sensors
Depending on the installation you may need a sensor adaptor. (sensor connector 1/8 PT sold separately)
1. Be sure to securely connect the sensor adaptor according to the manual so as to prevent any leakage of water and oil.
2. Be careful not to carry out this installation while engine is hot; it may result in burns or injury. Make sure engine has sufficiently
cooled down before attempting installation.
Connecting Water Temperature Sensor
Use the hose joint (sold separately) to attach the temperature sensor to the upper hose of radiator.
Cut
① Cut the upper radiator
hose at a suitable
spot.( Water coolant
will spill out, so
prepare replacement
coolant.)
Upper hose
② Fit the hose band onto
the cut upper hose and
securely connect the cut
h o s e to t h e h o s e j o i nt
with the hose band, so as
no leakage will occur.

where road conditions may be
poor, please do not use this

If you install in a car with a SUBARU
horizontally-opposed engine, and use the
screw hole in the oil pump to install the oil
pressure sensor, the vibration from the oil
pressure may be so great. This may cause
damage to the sensor. If you plan to install in
such a car model, please use the oil element
installation adaptor as shown at right.

Troubleshooting
Trouble
Possible Causes
Possible Solutions
Does not work with Engine start.
Poor connection of Gauge cable , Red or Black
wires.
Please reconfirm whether wiring and connections
are correct or not.
The opening demo starts with Engine
start, but the needle does not work.
Poor connection of Pressure sensor or breaking
of wire.
Please reconfirm whether wiring and connections
are correct or not.
Upon starting up, the unit will not start
in the newly changed display.
Because after changing displays, if the car’ s engine is turned off within 6 seconds, the new setting will not be
stored, make sure to wait at least 6 seconds before turning the engine off.
T h e Te m p e r a t u r e d i s p l ay s d o n o t
change from ---, or do not show the

Please reconfirm Temperature sensor and
whether wiring and connections are correct or not.
