Unit came to me with intermitant temp light on , now the temp light stays on even if the machine is overnight cold, i replaced the temp sensor in the water inlet housing on the cylinder head , and still the light comes on ,and the engine is not overheating, i tested the temp of the engine with a infrared temp gun temp of the motor never went above 170 degrees . that is after 30 mins. of hard running, never got hot enough to turn on the cooling fan, but the darn temp light stays on.

SOURCE: Cooling fan wont work

The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.

SOURCE: cooling fans on 2001 chevy malibu will not come on unless ac on

the relays control circuit is grounded by ECM (computer) . to check this make sure the is hot enough for the fans to be commanded on by computer and check to see if you have voltage at relay and it has ground from computer . you may need ECM.
good luck

SOURCE: 1999 cadillac deville overheating

my husband did everything that everyone else did that had this overheating problem. It was so weird that my engine cooled at a light and heated up going down the road. I have a north star 4.6 engine and this is natorious for happening. my check engine light also came on and so I had a diagnostics done which told me my #1 injector wasn't firing , car ran like **** as well. After putting in a new water pump and plugs,ect. and realized injector was good a friend told him we could have a blown head gasket. So just to see if this was the problem I went to buy a bottle of glassbeads and the auto parts guy told us to purchase a bottle of BARS STOP LEAK BLOCK SEALER NOT RADIATOR BUT BLOCK SEALER $31.99 . He followed the directions and we waited 24 hrs. before driving it. What ever the problem was has stopped my car runs like brand new and I am loving it again. no over heating no injector problem, runs great.......I hope this helps. I know its probly a temperary fix but its a fix and now we know what the problem was. SASSY

SOURCE: I have a 2003 VW Jetta 1.8t that is overheating.

Assuming engine tune / mechanical condition is not the cause of the overheating:-
Ensure cooling fan is cutting in at the appropriate engine temperature - check operation of the fan controlling relay,
Ensure fan switching control temperature sensor is serviceable,
Ensure cooling system is filled properly, taking care to bleed out air where necessary,
Ensure coolant pressure cap is of correct rating and in serviceable condition,
Check coolant hose on suction side of waterpump is not softened and collapsing at engine revs above idle,
Ensure radiator core is not blocked or cooling airflow inhibited by insects etc.

Car has been sitting overnight thermostat recently replaced as well as the temp sensor still reads hot


If vehicle reads hot when it sits overnight and is actually cold, there is an issue with the temp gauge... temp sensor... wiring.... . You didn't state year/make/ model so it could even be a BCM issue.

I have a 2006 expedition 5.4 the temp gauge stays on cold whats wrong?


check your coolant. the temp is the water temp. Your radiator is out of water? you`ll burn out your water pump. Also check to see if your radiator fans are running constantly.

Won t stay running when first started. runs fine once its warmed up


This sounds like the temp sending unit for the ecm is bad. There are 2 temp sensors, 1 for the light/gauge and 1 for the ecm. The sensor sends a signal to the ecm to tell it engine temp, the ecm them adjusts fuel mixture for cold or warm engine.This works much the same way as the choke does on a carb for cold starts

Temperature needle stays on the hot and doesnt move even when the car is cold?


YOur guage is faulty. Your will need to replace your guage if it stays in the hot position even when your car is off and your key is out of the ignition. If it only rises to hot when you turn the key to the run position, you have a wire between your guage and your temp sending unit that has been gounded out. Usually this happens when a person opens their hood to add oil or perform some minor maintenance on the engine and inadvertantly bumps the sensor or switch or wiring. This causes about 65% of these minor issues people incur, but if it does stay all the way up with your key out of the ignition switch, then you will need to replace your temp guage.

My temp gauge stays on hot but not over heating and the heater is blowing cold


you might have a defective sender unit (temperature) or faulty wiring to the same unit.Identify the sender unit and disconnect it whilst your ignition is on. Temp gauge must fall to cold.If it does, sender unit needs replacement and if it stays high your wiring to the sender unit is shorting with ground

Temp gauge on 1994 mercedes c220 stopped working could it be fuse or what


Well, "Or What" would be the correct answer based on the choices given. Please read this article about fuses: Where's The Fuse?

You most likely have a problem with the Coolant Temperature Sensor. There are a couple of temp sensors. The one with the single green wire is the one for the gauge. If you disconnect the wire from the sensor, the gauge should read COLD. If you take a paper clip or small screwdriver and ground the green wire, the gauge should read HOT. If this works, then replace the sending unit. If the gauge stays COLD even when the wire is grounded, Then you need to check for an open circuit in the green wire between the sending unit (Sensor) and the insrument cluster. If the gauge reads HOT even with the sending unit unplugged, then check the green wire for a short to ground between the instrument cluster and the sending unit. If there is no problem with the wire - Not open or grounded, then the gauge itself is bad.

Temp gauge stay on cold.


Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.
