Man this is really weird. I was getting a really low reading on my volt gage again so I decided to go ahead and wire it right to the relay. I checked voltage at the relay and had a good reading, then I ran a wire to the gage and the gage goes backward and I know I pulled the right wire, so then I thought what the heck I'll swap the wires and it still went backward. Now I'm really confused. I put the old wire back on and the gage works fine but the reading is still low. I'm guessing I have a bad gage so I'm going to order a new one today.

Sounds like your gage is bad , but did you check the ground ?

Lamont,
I know you have a new gauge enroute but did you wiggle the voltage wire on both sides of the connecting harness to make sure you have no changes in your gauge readings? The wire on mine had almost come completely out of the connectoer inside the harness and was the reason my gauge was reading errratic.
