    Quick question - Oil gauges

    In the pic below, what is the blue wire attached to and where do you think it goes?

    I'm currently fitting oil pressure and oil temp, i have my pressure sender like that but I don't have that other sender so wondering what it is?

    I have an oil temp sender but thats got 2 wires coming off it as thats what I thought that must be initially

    Thanks

    blue wire goes directly to back of the gauge and the other is the pressure sender.that goes to back of the pressure gauge.

    make sure you have a good connection tho as with mine i had to much tape on and it did not earth correctly
