    Problems with my egt when i turn on headlights??

    so it was starting to get dark and i was looking at my egt, and i turn the headlights on the all of a sudden my egt drops below 3, i started messing with it..........when i turn my inside lights on with the knob it goes down a little when i turn the headlights on it drop down like 1celsius on the egt.....also when i press my brakes in nuetral it will be at 4 then i press my brakes and it goes down to 3, i let go off the brake it goes up it press the brake it goes down ........i ripped my car apart to see if me egt wire was fried cause i remmeber i had a coolant leak.......everything look fine ......

    my brother tells me its probably the wiring maybe were we tapped it something got loose....any suggestions before i tear more stuff up?

    MORE INFO:the car was on i was at a light an i turned the lights on whne i saw this, as im driving i will turn off the headlights and egt will drop .......when im at a stop i press the brakes the egt will go down when i let go it goes up i pump it the needle jump up and down

    If you're on the brakes your EGTs are going to go down cause your engine RPMs are going to drop.

    Sounds totally normal to me...

    sounds like a voltage issue from me and your meter is just reacting. youll probably notice dimming in your other electronics at the same time? are you running a large stereo or anything?

    nope everything stock im running a perrin lgihtened crank pulley.....nothing happens when i turn on stereo when i turn ac on it acts funny and today i was turning on my blinkers the needle started going with the blinker lol, if its a electronic issue i can have someone look at it.........but what do you think?

    this just started to happen

    today without my head lights on and stuff the car when i pressed my brakes it did the same thing needle drops like a whoel celsius just not even slowley like :wha wha: immediatly.........i think cause i took my fog lights off and i dont have anything hooked up to it caould this be a factor? the wries are just hanging under my car

    you can just make sure theyre dry and tape up the connectors. you dont have to snip them incase you ever want to use them again...

    i dont know my team manager did it........this jsut happened recently it used to work fine im thinking maybe the tapping is crappy or the wires got loose? when i turn my headlights on the gauges lights come on.......but its doing it now even without my lights on when i press the brakes it will jump all weird
