I am trying to create a simple device which will monitor water temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure in my car. I already have in my hands the arduino diecimila board, an LCD and 3 sensors. I have connected the LCD to arduino and I can display data on it without any problems.
Now, I am trying to connect one temperature sensor to arduino. The temperature sensor I have is the VDO 320-059 (http://www.egauges.com/vdo_indS.asp?Sender=300F_150C&PN=323-059) I have tried connecting the sensor using one wire which goes from ground to the sensor and one wire which goes from the sensor to analog in 5. I tried to heat the sensor but I always get 0 from analogRead(). What do I need to connect the sensor to arduino?
Keep in mind that I have no idea on electronics! ::)
