SOURCE: Temp gauge soesn't work

IF YOU CHANGED THE FLUID AND THEN THE SENSOR FAILED IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS AIR IN THE RUBBER PIPING TO THE TOP OF THE ENGINE MANIFOLD. THERE IS A BLEEDE VALVE TO RELIEVE TRAPPED AIR AND ONCE THAT IS GONE THE GAUGE WILL RESPOND. YOU HAVE AN AIR BLOCK AND THE SENSOR NEED TO BE IN THE ANITFREEZE SOLUTION TO FUNCTION.

Where is the coolant temp sensor on a suzuki grand vitara


If it's a 2.0 it'll be on the back of the cylinder head on the intake side, sort of between the engine and the firewall - it is a single unit with two separate and independent sensors, one for the dash guage, the other for the ECU.
