Temp. Gauge

Soo I might be paranoid but when you guys start your car (when all the gauges and lights come on) does the temp. gauge turn on red for a brief second or is my car just being a total bitch? lol...Thanks

I dunno what you mean by coming on red. That red mark is always there, does the needle go to the red on start up? But a better question, are you p-shopping the speed and tack?

Smile

normal... it lights up briefly as a bulb check; same as your fuel "empty" light; and other cluster warning lights.

funny thing i have noticed though... on some models it doesn't light and on some it does.

I was bored at work lol And I'm pretty talented on p-shop. But really I freaked out, I guess my car is just being a total bitch lately. The check engine light comes on and it's freaking me out...lol I just reset it and who cares. But good to know that it comes on briefly...I was being paranoid....
