Those meters are the same as the ones from ColdFusionX. They are all Chinese made, probably from the same place and the only reason they are cheaper is because they are direct shipped from China instead of from the importer in CA.

Just noticed that, probably they are all made in china!! There is another company 'sure electronics' that seem to be selling branded meters...the only thing is they are 5v...would have to run a resistor on them or maybe power from a small battery pack. Ill give it a shot for $10!

So today is the 20th, 8 days after Mr. Wong promised to send out the meters in one or two days. Based on that email I should of had the meter by now. Sent him another email so let's see what he says.

Good! I just sent you a PM asking that same question...

Maybe I'll get mine tomorrow.

After exchanging sever emails with Mr. Wong, I have my replacement meter installed and calibrated to match a hand held digital meter I trust. There's a screw on the back of the meter for calibration. The decimal point still does not display, but "Oh, well."

Cutting the dash opening to the correct size was difficult. There is only about an eighth of an inch difference between the size of the part to be inserted and the face plate. I had an ugly gap top and bottom, but found some caulking that matched the dash.

That orange thing above the key is a flasher wired in parallel with the turn signals to remind me to turn them off. The clicker is not loud enough for my aging ears. I sure wish cart turn signals would kick off after the turn like those in cars do.

Glad to hear it pjs On my new meter everything was fine including the dip switches. On the one in my cart now I have a sliver of plastic between the red case and the white #3 switch, holding it down just enough to show the decimal point on the display.

Currently my wife is my Amber warning light letting me know I didn't turn off the turn signals but I do like your idea of placing one on the dash as well to let me know I left them on when she's not with me

Before I installed the meter I did a cardboard cutout to fit the meter itself, tight, then I taped it on the dash before I cut out the hole. It was a bit tight so I opened it up with a file and no gaps.

Next time I have the dash apart, I'll fashion something to hold the #3 dip down. When I tested the meter outside the cart, it did show, but then quit.

My wife also delights in telling me about the turn signal. Must be a common wife-gene.

I did my dash layout bass-ackwards. I measured and then cut a square of cardboard and then taped and traced around it thus expanding the hole. Yours was the better approach.

The turn signal assembly on my cart does have different LED's that flash for right & left turns as well as a red led for hazard, but the problem is that the stock steering wheel hides them. Hummmm, I guess I'll just have to buy a new custom steering wheel that doesn't block them. (Let's see how this goes over with the wife!)

I have one of these units, but would like to confirm the DIP settings. Does someone have the settings they could send me (especially the discrete input GND, DIP 4 I believe) ?

Thanks.
