Secondary gage moniters the secondary air tank. Tank sender may be bad, or the gage can broken. Do the air brakes work? Then you have pressure in the secondary tank. So gage or sender, or wire is off the sender!

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Where is the sender located, is it on the front of the secondary tank
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Typically on the connections to the tank. Single pressure sender.
