Where is the engine temp sensor located in a 94 dodge spirit. 2.5 liter car

It doesn't show an 'engine temperature sensor' for that year, make and model
What you do have is a Coolant Temperature Sensor (there are actually one of each on other makes and models - an engine temperature sensor and a coolant {radiator fluid} sensor). Just doesn't appear to be a separate engine temp sensor for the 94 2.5. The coolant temperature sensor is the sensor that will make your temp gauge in the car move. It's location is - Under hood, center, front engine area, near distributor, mounted in driver side of cylinder head. I've attached a pic of the sensor for you.

You also have an intake air temperature sensor and an ambient air temperature sensor that tells the computer the temp in the vehicle's cabin. I can shoot you that info if your question wasn't answered above.

Good Luck & All The Best, Justin Lee

06 rendezvous that the digital temp display for outside temp is wrong. The display reads 32 degree and it is actually 80 degrees so the A/C does not cool vehicle down. What is the problem?

Suspect a failure in the ambient air temp sensor. Has the vehicle ever been in a frontal collision? This sensor is normally located in front of the radiator assembly bolted to the rad support. If it is reading a cold temperature, it will not allow the AC to operate

The windscreen demister button will not go off, my temp gauge is moving up and down and the external temp gauge show -----

A defogger, demister, or defroster is a system
is this the front HVAC defrost mode.
or the rear electric defogger. (heater element grid)
what temp gauge (engine>?) no car has climate controls. advanced.
external? (part of climate controls right) not a hand test tool.

my guess this is HVAC master, climate controls. are all the above.
these are complex on newer cars,
to fix such a complex device ,you need the FSM.
or at the least an account on
check fuses. and read the FSM.
the FSM walks you through each fail and test steps.

on my car, it's a cable and a water valve, and a cable damper.
on your car is up to 3 complex, damper motors
and electronic thermostatic control and sensors.
vastly complex to mine. I can fix both but not with out the book.
what a tech does is , check power to the contoller first.
bad fuse, bad wires bad grounds, we use a DMM and measure the voltage at the controller, this is first.
then we check for loose connections.
i work the simple fails first (mil rules) this can find a simple problem
and by magic fixes the complex. (wasted effort later)
so the air temp sensor external, (real name) we work that first
i test the sensor voltage. is it spec, and right for current temp?
y/n, yes, then the controller is bad.
no? sensor bad, or power source to the sensor is bad.

that is how we fix electronic controls
1: power good.
2: inputs "
3: outputs."

Ambient outside air temp sensor

i may be wrong but that sensor is for the ac not for engine operation and at 113 if its not that hot then the sensor is bad but if its summer its ok,, your engine works with intake air temp

Temp fan failure could be the thermo temperature sensor. I am not sure of the actual name of it but if you can direct wire your fan and it works, then the fan is good, the sensor is bad. I myself have rewired a switch to them so I can control when and how long the electric fan runs.

Cooling fans on 1994 Caprice classic with 4.3 v8 not coming on. I have replaced the temp sensor on the water pump, temp sensor on the block, all relays, fuses are good, replaced the ecm (engine control...

On a vehicle this age, it is likely that the fans themselves have worn out. Test the fans by running battery power directly to the positive contact. If they start, they are OK. On 4.3 motors, there is also a seperate temp sensor to signal the fans, usually called a fan switch. I believe it operates independent of the ECM. Another possible culprit is a bad ground at the fans or even a loose or corroded negative battery cable.

05 GMC shows wrong temp. for out side temp. on

Ensure that your Outside Temp Sensor is in the correct place, installed near the radiator on the lower portion of the vehicle, under the hood.

Check/replace if broken or damaged.
