    factory boost gauge stopped working.

    I just noticed on the way home the A-pillar boost gauge is not working anymore, is there anything obvious I can check or is it usually just broken?

    Thanks.

    Mine stopped working. Opened up the sensor and the solder joints were dried and cracked, resoldered, good as new.
    does the guage read 0 or is it not coming on?

    Sounds the same as what mine did, take off the sensor and open it up and look for dry joints.

    The sensor is on a bracket near your brake fluid reservoir, will see an vacuum pipe plumbed in if you didn't know.

    Is it possible to replace the bulb in the factory boost gauge?
