Question about 2006 Chrysler 300

Open Question

My engine temperature gauge is not working. What could it be?

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300 base model 2.7L V6. I already replaced the sensor and was able to borrow an instrument cluster and it still didn't work. What else can it be? Please help, don't know what else can be wrong.

SOURCE: Speed gauge is not working in car.

more then likely it is a speed sensor located between the motor and transmission

SOURCE: 2000 Chrysler Voyager Instrument Cluster is dead

have you got a dimmer switch on your model to dim the dash lights. if you have it may be faulty. link the cables together if the lights work the switch is faulty. if you have not got a dimmer switch
your printed circuit on the back of the dash may be faulty or the plug in the back of the dash is not pushed all the way in. hope this helps

Take your car to the nearest auto parts store and ask them to read and erase your trouble codes. As soon as you throw another code get them to read it again to verify which code is alerting you. Remember that just replacing a part is not always a solution. A egr is not too expensive and easily changed by someone handy. Buy a haynes repair manual for around $25. It's a good investment and will walk you through most repairs. It will also give you a basic understanding of what could be wrong with your car so that you will npt be taken advantage of by an unscrupulous mechanic .

I need the easiest possible directions to replace the coolant temperature sensor in my 1999 Chevy Lumina ltz 3.8 v6 car please.


The coolant sensor temperature is usually found just beneath the cylinder head, on the engine block.

You just disconnect the 1-2 wires and then undo it with a wrench.
The sensor will look like one of these:
1999 Chevy Lumina ltz 3 8 v6 coolant temperature sensor Google Search

Just be aware .. you may have TWO such sensors on your vehicle.

One sensor (usually with 3-4 electrical pins) is near the thermostat and works in conjunction with other sensors to regulate fuel/air according to engine temperature.

The other type of sensor is in the block near the cylinder head. It sends a signal to the temperature gauge on your dashboard ONLY. If your temp gauge constantly reads too hot or too cold .. this one is the culprit.25939754-r0ibht2u2t2rhetbyfvb2pry-5-0.jpg
If it's a running fault .. speed .. rough running .. fuel. It may look like this:

Why is my temperature gauge not working?


Chrysler has made major advancements in their technology that is based on 1991 platform, however they still suffer old school problems, if you have an incomplete Ground circuit it will cause odd reactions and rare is the case that 2 identical vehicles will give the same reaction ( dimming in lights on the dash, faulty gauge readings, delayed or extended cranking engine starts, eventually engine control module failure ). Also upgrades such as the stereo or on Board GPS unit and not putting the ground wire back on ( this is the Dash to Chassis Ground circuit that is completed through the antenna thus creating a noise reduction filter by proxy of power flow ). This can even be caused by nothing more than a dirty connection at the battery.

Happy Tuning...

My temperature guage doesn't work at all


If you know the engine is warming up, and the cooling system is full, and you replaced the temp sender for the gauge and not the one for the engine computer if equipped, the problem may be in the instrument cluster on the dash.

Hello 2006 Chrysler,

If your talking about the component that is located along the air duct run from the air filter to the throttle body it is caled a MAF sensor.

The check enging light comes on then goes off. I foud out the code po118 engine coolant temp circut high input. is it the coolant temp sensor. if so how do I replace it. It is on a 2004 jetta tdi


According to Autozone.com:

Because ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor procedures vary depending upon their location, first locate the part. You may need to partially drain the engine coolant to prevent coolant spillage.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Unplug the ECT.
  • Then, unscrew it.
  • Reverse the removal procedures to install the new part.
  • Connect the negative battery cable to the battery.

Fig. Remove the coolant temperature sensor
The coolant temperature gauge sensor is a temperature-variable resistor, or thermistor. As coolant temperature increases, the resistance of the sensor decreases or decreases, depending on the type of sensor.
A1 and A2 platforms use a different type of circuit that A3 vehicles. On A1 and A2 vehicles, the circuit is a "resistance to ground" type. A3 vehicles use a "variable voltage" type, where a voltage is supplied to the sensor. Because of the circuitry design on A3 vehicles, testing of the coolant temperature gauge is limited.
The engine coolant temperature gauge uses a heat sensitive sending unit to transmit an electrical signal to the gauge. The sending unit is a heat sensitive variable resistor that is located on or near to the cylinder head and threads into an engine coolant passage. The sensors are a Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) type. As the temperature increases, the electrical resistance of the sensor decreases. As the coolant temperature changes, so does the resistance of the sensor. The gauge is calibrated within the operating range of the sensor and interprets the resistance value to display the coolant temperature.
Beginning with model year 1994, the engine coolant gauge and the Engine Control Module (ECM) temperature sensors were combined into one sensor with 4 terminals. The basic operation remains the same in that their resistance decreases as the coolant temperature increases, however the actual resistance values of the 2 sensor circuits are different. The electrical connector of the 4-wire terminal sensor ( 1 and 2 ) is keyed to prevent improper connection of the sensor's electrical circuit.
