    Default EWP LED?

    Is there a kit or some type of diagram for a warning light when the ewp goes out?

    I remember finding one on shbox.com a few years ago. Not sure if that site is still up and/or if itís still there.

    Wiring in a light/buzzer to a inline flow switch in the heater hose would show if WP was "pumping" as the other types just show if it is getting +12v which does not indicate if a ground dropped or the EWP itself was not turning

    ...but for me in the 19 years I have had my EWP....I just keep and eye on the temp, and other, gauges.

    Another option would be to install a "A" pillar gauge, water temp, with a programmable alert temp that activates a light in the gauge

    Or mount the gauge in the lower bezel of your instrument cluster

    Shoebox is alive and well. He does have a circuit for adding an LED to a manual fan switch, but I don’t recall one for an electric WP.

    OP Google it, there's a wiring diagram on the impala forums

    I talked to shoebox, he said he will have the site around for as long as possible, and when he decides to pack it in I may take it over

    I have always wondered why folks will see a light going off, but not see the gauge cluster creeping.
    Correlation does not imply causation.

    I personally wired one because I was driving my project before I had a full set of gauges.
