Temp gauge not working 2004 cadillac cts


It would have to be on a scanner to see if the PCM is sending a signal(most likely is, other gauges working). Instrument panel gauges do go bad. And they can be replaced.

Honda Pilot 2003, low engine temperature, thermostat was replaced several times, still the engine temp is low.


use a termo laser to check temp of coolant at filler cap ,with cap off run vehicle till you have hot heat coming out of your heater then check with laser. if it reads above 140 then you know 2 things . either the therm sensor is going bad or the temp gauge is bad , make sure the radiator fans come on ,if they do and you have good heat then you have bad gauge.

Temperature gauge redlines and check gauge light comes one only after driving 35 miles or so.I already replaced termostat and did a coolant flush. Water pump is not leaking no leaks any were. I am...


Try to change out the CTS or coolant temperature sensor to see if that rectifies the gauge problem. If the engine doesn't seem to boilover or malfunction, it may very well be a false high heat indicator problem. in the electronic side of the coolant system.

Car doesnt heat up change therstat still doest heat up


Is your gauge just showing a low temperature? i can guarantee your engine is getting hot. If your gauge is showing low temp you may just have a bad temp sensor.

1998 olds Bravada, runs great in the driveway, once in gear, i give it gas and it quits, only happens in cold weather


Bad TPS will give you a SES light. Possible low fuel pressure from bad fuel pump. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the service port close to the firewall, should stay above 50 psi when juicing the gas. Only use OEM parts on a Bravada! Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay.

I have a 91 bravada all gauges work but my temp can some help


Find and check the temperature gauge sensor 'sender' unit on the engine.
To test:-
- if you ground the wire connected to the sender the gauge should go to full scale high,
- open circuit the gauge should read zero (nil deflection).
If above test ok, replace the temperature sender unit with correctly specified item.
