Has anyone fitted an oil pressure and volt gauge from a cavalier to a corsa b.
I am unsure of what wire does what. I have got 4 wires Black, Brown, Grey/Black and Blue/Yellow.
I thought it was as follows
Blue/Yellow- oil pressure
Black- ignition live
Brown- earth
Grey/Black ?
Is that correct

Can anyone help.

These are easy to wire in

Black - Ignition
Brown - Earth
Grey/black stripe - Dash clock illumination
Blue/yellow stripe - Oil pressure sender or earth out to prevent damage to gauge

I think that's what you need..?

Yeah pretty much.

It's set up as a parallel circuit it will read the voltage across the live and earth then a voltage regulator inside the gauge will give you a reading

I got them off here months ago and they had been modified to fit straight in the stereo slot. Theres a few on ebay but they seem to be getting expensive.
