* Connect to a dash light that dims via the vehicle dimmer adjustment to ensure the gauge dims accordingly. If your
illumination circuit in your vehicle varies the positive voltage for dimming you will require a REDARC Enhanced Lighting
Controller (GA-ELC) to get the gauge to dim with your night-time driving lights.
** Ensure that the ground connection makes good contact with the vehicle ground. Poor grounding can cause incorrect
sensor readings. REDARC recommend removing any paint from the surface to ensure a bare metal on metal connection.
It is recommended that any wiring harnesses be covered using conduit or similar.
*** A steel 1/8 inch NPT bung (supplied) can be welded into a suitable location on the exhaust for mounting the EGT
sensor. Make sure the tip of the probe is in the centre of the exhaust pipe when mounted.
**** Connect the manifold pressure sensing hose to a suitable manifold hose using the ‘T’ piece provided. If no suitable
hose exists you may need to attach a suitable fitting into the manifold.
It is recommended that any wiring harnesses be covered using conduit or similar.

EGT PROBE INSTALLATION
The EGT Sensor should be installed in the following fashion by a suitably qualified installer:
1. Allow the engine to cool completely before commencing any work.
2. Locate the recommended sensor location point on the pipe. (Each make and model of vehicle will
have a specific location for the EGT sensors on the factory pipes. For aftermarket pipes, the system
may require a sensor location which is very different from the factory location - Consult your dealer or
manufacturer for the correct location for your system)
3. Have the pipe drilled and the included threaded boss welded into the appropriate position by a suitably
qualified installer.
4. Assemble and Install the compression cap and ferrule assembly onto the welded base and finger
tighten (Refer to diagram below for correct compression cap assembly)
5. Remove the black protective rubber cap from the end of the sensor probe and insert through the
installed mounting hardware. Tighten compression nut using an open-end wrench. Do not over tighten typically ½ turn past finger tight is sufficient.
6. If room permits, align the sensor transition and spring at a 90-degree angle to the exhaust pipe to
position the sensor tip correctly in the exhaust stream.
7. Connect the interface plug wires. (Refer to diagram below) Note: yellow wire should be connected to ‘+’,
red wire to ‘-’

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Selecting Gauge ID for multi-gauge systems
If your gauge is part of a multi gauge system (i.e. more than one gauge) and you wish to allow
programming from a single push button, connect the communication link wires together (see wiring
diagram on page 2). The Gauge “Id” of all linked gauges will need to be set to unique numbers.
Make sure that each gauge is set to a unique number or letter and that one gauge is set as the master
“Id.0”. The master gauge switch needs to be accessible for programming all the gauges. Each individual
gauge switch is only needed to set the programming ID.
Setup Instructions
Setup Mode is only required if you wish to change settings such as background color or other options. Setup
mode is indicated by the display of the programming symbol.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Centre black circle on gauge is flashing intermittently.
If the black centre ring is flashing and the gauge sounds an alarm, the gauge may have been
programmed to trigger a relay, but a relay is not detected. Check the relay connection or reprogram as
required. If no relay output is required refer to setup mode 11 and select ‘nc’.
What is the ‘peak hold’ (PH) feature?
When the gauge push button is pressed, the needle pointer(s) and/ or digital display will show the
highest/ peak reading for the function being monitored. This feature will reset when the vehicles ignition
is turned off.
Do I need to purchase the optional sensor for my gauge to work?
No, the standard features of the gauge will still work. To purchase the optional sensors please visit www.
redarc.com.au
What is the P-clip used for?
Attaching the p-clip to the back of the gauge ensures that the connectors are strongly fixed to the gauge,
thereby minimising the risk that they may come loose during installation and/ or rough driving conditions.
I cannot see my question here?
Please contact REDARC’s free technical support on (08) 8322 4848
Is the gauge compatible with existing vehicle sensors or other sensors available in the market?
No, the gauge is designed to work only with the sensors sold by REDARC.
What is the best mounting solution for my gauge?
REDARC offers a range of mounting panels and a mounting cup for its gauge range. Please ensure that
fitment of your gauge does not impede your driving field of view or create a head impact hazard.
Should I enclose the wiring harnesses in conduit?
REDARC recommends enclosing the supplied wiring harnesses in a suitable conduit that will protect the
wiring against sharp edges and/ or extreme temperatures.
Where should I install the black push button?
In most cases, once the gauge is set up and programmed the push button can be hidden behind the
vehicles instrument dash panel. However, if you believe that you may need to regularly change any of the
modes or wish to use the peak hold feature you should locate the push button in an accessible area (e.g.
at the back of the mounting cup).
Can I fit my gauge to a 24V vehicle circuit?
The gauge requires 12V to operate. A 24V to 12V adaptor is available for purchase (GA-2412V). This
can be purchased for all gauges, however the G52-VA and G52-VVA will only allow you to monitor the
charging performance of 12V batteries.
My gauge is too bright when driving (i.e. at night), what should I do?
You will need to purchase an Enhanced Lighting Controller (GA-ELC). This module is to be used when
you do not have a dimming circuit you can connect your gauges to, are using REDARC Gauges for all of
your instrumentation so require dimming or the dimming circuit in your vehicle does not dim the REDARC
gauges to your liking. The ELC allows you to program the night time brightness and colour of your gauges,
including dimming if connected to a dash dimmer (i.e. once programmed your gauge(s) will change colour
when turning on your park lights and back to a day light colour when you turn them off). You only require
one ELC for a complete set of gauges. It can be used in conjunction with the 24 volt adaptor (GA-2412V)
for a 24 volt system (ELC module is 24v capable).

plague or other epidemic, fire, flood, blizzard, hurricane, changes of public policies,
terrorism and other events which are beyond the control of Redarc. In such
circumstances, Redarc may suspend performance of this Warranty without liability for
the period of the delay reasonably attributable to such causes.
20. If a clause or part of a clause in this Warranty can be read in a way that makes it illegal,
unenforceable or invalid, but can also be read in a way that makes it legal, enforceable
and valid, it must be read in the latter way. If any clause or part of a clause in this
Warranty is illegal, unenforceable or invalid, that clause or part is to be treated as
removed from this Warranty, but the rest of this Warranty is not affected.
