I seem to have some sort of electrical problem with my pyro gauge (Autometer), when the air con is switched on the needle starts to move erratically at a rapid speed between the current temp and 0.
This only happens when the air con is on and does not happen all the time, it seems as when the air con compressor starts to kick in is when it starts to happen. I have changed the earthing point for the gauge and nothing has changed.
Would changing the earth strap from the battery to the chassis/block make a difference?

Thanks

Add a new earth strap directly from the battery to the engine block, not only will this fix this issue but the car will crank over faster, use a correct heavy duty earth strap

Thanks Jet-6, I finally got around to redoing the earth cables and that has fixed the problem.

Does it also crank over faster now? Bet it feels like a new battery and starter too

yeah the autometer gauges when they turn off and back on they reset back to 0 degrees as they are an electronic gauge.
