Question about 1996 Audi A4
My gauge cluster shows the water temp maxxed out and the overheating warning light is always on, but the car is not overheating. Found the sensor in the lower radiator hose on the pass side has nothing plugged into it and I cannot find the wire with plug to hook it up anywhere. I've been looking for hours at every inch of the engine bay and there are no unplugged wires hanging anywhere. At this point I have no idea what to do next. Any advice would be great.
What i would guess it that the person before you had the car, left the plugs off from the sensot, and they melted onto something that got very hot. That would explain why it would read overheating. Check everywhere near the sensor for places it could have melted onto and then either buy a new plug for it, or just soder the wires straight onto the sensor.(Not reccomended )
