With the Scan gauge plugged in and the vehicle not driven for a few days will the battery be run down to the point where it will not have enough juice to start the vehicle. I had a Dashawk a few years ago and you could not leave it plugged in for very long with out the vehicle running or it would run down the battery, thanks.

No. Not in my experience. How long do you plan on having it plugged in for?

What scan gauge are you talking about? To diagnose codes? I am totally lost here.

I believe it's called a scangauge, it is used to read temps,mpg,time to empty,ect.ect. i am going to use it to monitor the trans temp. it can also be used to diagnose codes.

My Scanguage II shuts itself off a few seconds after I kill the engine and does not come on even with the key in the On position. I have left mine in for about 4 years with no problem so far.

The "X" gauge codes for reading your transmission temps are on this forum. Works great.

Oh I didn't know that mach. I'll look for them, thanks. I have been using my SG2 for about 2 years now with a previous vehicle and then in the Jeep without any issues.

ditto. When some of my gauges quit working on the Mustang, I didn't want to spend $600 on a new set so I got a Scangauge II. It's been hooked up for several years and I have had no battery issues.

I plan on getting one for the JK and doing the mirror mount.
