Engine temp gauge died, now trans. temp gauge dead.

I have a 1996 monaco windsor and the engine temp gauge quit working a yr ago, now the trans. temp gauge quit working.. the trans temp gauge is not even in the same cluster as the engine temp... I have seen a small junction box in the engine compartment (diesle pusher) where the senders connect to but was wondering if anyone else had this problem.. the other gauges work fine.. i have tried wiggleing the wires and still nothing.. can you help me..?

I would start with a new sensor for the engine temp, and if that worked I would install a new one for the trans. I have also installed (plug and play) a Scan Gauge D. It will give you more info then you could possibly want. Camping World has them and they are GREAT. I wouldn't want to drive a pusher without one. $152.00 no tax in Oregon. deSanford PS it could be the gauge has failed.

I had the same problem and jumped thru hoops behind the dash, played with grounds and what have you.
I replaced the wire ends at the sensors on the tranny and engine. Works okay now. The connectors were rusty implying low quality. Also of course cleaned the contact surfaces on the sensors.
