    I just plugged in my new scangauge and mph and mpgs aren't working. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

    Since you say you "just plugged in" the scangauge, did you go through the steps in the instruction manual that tell you how to set it up for your vehicle? You know, telling the scangauge the size of your fuel tank, that sort of thing?

    Here you go.

    Never heard of that problem before. I'd contact the maker of the Scangauge, either something is odd about the 2011 (perhaps your truck is really new and there was a mid-year change?) or your scangauge is defective.

    Problem solved. I had the cluster out to replace the led's with all blue ones (done by yosh2000) and for whatever reason the scangauge wouldn't read those two things without the cluster plugged in.

    That's weird. I am having a problem with the avg reading ridiculously high (read: 55-60 mpg) and some other weird readings. I used to have the scangauge II set up in my old Impala and it worked fine, it's like it wont switch to the new truck. I am about to look over the manual again to see if I need to do something more to get it to work.
