They do if someone adds one for an EGT gauge.I didn't think 1.8T's had an EGT probe.
Kool guys thanks for tha info yeah car came with.They do if someone adds one for an EGT gauge.
The thing shown in the left of the photo is the #1 oxygen sensor. That's the one the ECM uses to determine if fueling is rich or lean so it can make adjustments in an attempt to keep fueling optimal. Further down the exhaust (after the CAT) is the #2 oxygen sensor. The data from this second sensor is compared to the #1 sensor to determine if the CAT is doing its job properly.
Looks like it's already ruined.You don't think that I'll ruin it by splicing it?
Well don't yu think if I blew tha gauge it wouldn't even light up or blink or what I really hope its not totally ruined that HKS egt is freeeakin expensive.. lets pray to the passatgods. LolLooks like it's already ruined.
If you're lucky, the melted connector is the only problem and replacing it with a splice will get things working again.
If you're unlucky, when it melted to the CAT it also shorted a conductor to ground and blew the gauge.
Try contacting the gauge manufacturer to see if they have tech support available or if they can send you a copy of the install manual.
Ima n00b but not that bigga n00b lol thanks steve:thumbup:For all we know, blinking is the gauges way of signaling a trouble code. We don't know for sure because we don't have the manual for the gauge system.
Fix the melted connection and see if it goes back to working. Note the polarity of the wires so you don't hook them up backwards.
Thanks Steve :thumbup::thumbup:
