    Would it be possible to run a Transmission temp gauge by tapping into the wires on the factory trans temp gauge?

    I noticed there is a trans temp sensor located on the top side of the transmission on my 05 tacoma pre-runner

    Would like to hook up a digital gauge

    Thanks for any info on doing this...

    A ScanGaugeII or UltraGauge will read that temp through the OBDII port, along with many other sensor outputs.

    Perhaps I spoke out of turn. I own a ScanGaugeII and it can display transmission fluid temperature, but I'm not sure the same can be said for the UltraGauge.

    White, debadged, Mudflaps removed, ICON 2.5 in front, 2.0 in rear, all 4 corners have reservoirs, Spidertrax wheel spacers all around, BAMF bolt on sliders, Avid lightbar, oem transmission cooler converted to power steering cooler, aftermarket transmission cooler eliminating all oem transmission cooler stuff, remote mounted spin on transmission fluid filter TrueTrac rear differential, rear diff housing vented and filtered into left side bed box, URD MAF calibrator, Volant intake scoop into oem airbox, second filter removed, airbox internals smoothed, blended and polished throttle body, NST intake manifold spacer, Wet Okolee set covers, WeatherTech Digital Fit mats, inexpensive JVC single DIN, Scangage, AVS Stepshield door sill protectors
    The newer Scangage can display both trans pan fluid temp and Converter fluid temp. Mine is setup to show both simultaneously.

    I don't know if Ultragage will or not.

    Rather than a work the oem wiring if you do not go Scangage, add a remote trans filter and install a temp probe in the fluid return line from the cooler. Or better yet, add an aftermarket cooler with the fittings already in place for the temp probe. Then run whatever gage setup you prefer.

    Which trans temps the SG gives depends on the year of the truck, for 10+ you can get the pan and converter temps via an Xguage setting, 05-09 only gets the pan temp.

    UG cannot do trans temps at all.

    Can also read it using the Torque app ($4.99) on my Droid that talks to my $15.00 OBD-II bluetooth sensor. I have about $20.00 invested in a very powerful and useful tool.
