    No issue that I can think of. Most electrical parts for cars, that do not have the voltage indicated on them, are six volt items.

      back to temp sensor, I installed a new one, ran a new wire from the gauge. same issue to day I sat in it watched the temp gauge got up tp 150 then pegged. looks like I need a gauge

        Sounds like ohm meter testing job.

          I would say the temp gauge along with the fuel gauge are basically an ohm meter since both senders work increased or decreased resistance.
          correct me if I'm wrong
