SOURCE: yellow warning light

Dunno where you reside but our indoor/outdoor digital thermometer shows a snowflake once the temp drops down to 0C/32F. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that a Jag would have a warning light for freezing temps.

SOURCE: air conditioner doesn't work when the outside temp goes up

You need to take it to a local shop and have the freon level checked. It sounds like the compressor is cycling to much on the hotter days and is not running long enough to cool down the low side. this is mostly caused by low freon levels and with this type of system with an expansion valve is common. this is not a costly fix unless you have a bad leak or blockage.

Radiator fans not coming on. replaced thermostat and cooling sensor

Hi Bill, is the engine actually getting hot enough for the fans to come on? if the engine does have overheating problem (but you say the temp gauge reads normal) then i would check the operation of the engine temp switch, there are two, one for the gauge and one for the fans.

Temp gauge works errtic on a 2001 optima but does not overheat

First check your coolant level. If it is low, look for leaks. Also don't rule out the reservoir isn't bad. Also if the hose is pinched to reservoir, this will cause low coolant in the engine.

2003 vw 18.t temp lights goes on but temp gauges read normal

If your coolant overflow is bubbling then regardless of what your gauge says you are having overheating issues. If your coolant is missing with no aparent leaks then you need to check your oil for a milky consistency and apearance which would most likely point to a blown head gasket. This would also explain overheating. Hope this helps

Temp gauge goes haywire ,shows low coolant but full,shows extreme temp and accereator stops then gauge goes normal and so does everything else. sometimes it just shuts down when gauge shows extreme...

Make sure the electric fan is working I have a simple fix for that on U Tube. Most of these are caused by the sensor and Then the Ignition will also cause this problem These cares are very Hi Tech but simple to do easy fixes on them.

Does this sound like a sensor problem?

I think you correct in thinking the sending unit is bad, this is a common problem. if the temp gauge reads hot and the engine is running normal and there is no coolant overflowing onto the ground and the radidator is full then i would have to say that the car is not really overheating but rather the sending unit is bad, i would replace the unit and go from there. these trucks run up to above the three quater mark on the gauge at times before the cooling fans are turned on by the computer. hope this is helpful.
