THE TEMPERATURE SENSOR SHOULD BE ON THE TOP OF THE ENGINE NEAR THE TERMASTAT. IT STICKS OUT OF THE ENGINE SO YOU SHOULD SEE IT

2000 vw beetle 2.0 L, low level coolant light...engine mil code 1256


not the pump but air in the system or a broken wire to the coolant level sensor
that sensor at the top of the radiator tank has to be completely immersed in coolant or the circuit is broken and the light comes on
same effect id the wire to that sensor is broken in the insulation

If the outside temp.sensor is reading -38 degrees then this is what is causing the compressor not to come on.You need to check the wiring to the outside temp.sensor and the sensor.Make sure it is connected.It is located on the front grill area.Between the grill and the bumper cover.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Misreading outside temperature sensor on 2001 Audi A4


There are four sensors for ambient tempurature and they work in unison to provide information to the temp reading on the dash, the heater control head ( where to direct air, blending of warm/cold/outside/inside air flapper controls) depending on the ambient temp and the inside air temp sensor located just above the radio as well as the sun sensor on the top of the dash as well as the a/c compressor head.

When you start your car, the body control module takes the readings from all sensors, outside air temp located in front of the radiator, air temp sensor located in the airbox ( senses temp of air being drawn in from the outside into the air box), coolant temp, inside air temp sensor and the sun sensor on top of the dash (this is why it takes a few seconds for the climate control system to begine when you start the car). The intake air sensor is 1st priority, inside air second, coolant third, ambient 4th and sun 5th. For instance, if the sun sensor reads the sun is hot but the interior sensor reads cold, the inside akes priority. The goal is for the system to achieve a tempurature inside the car that matches the selected temp. It uses all of the sensors to set the system up to achieve that goal as quickly as possible.

Example; Its mid afternoon, sunny and 40 degrees outside adn your in stop and go traffic. The intake sensor reads 40 degrees, the outside sensor reads 60 degrees (heat from radiator...engine heat protrudes into cabin) and the sun sensor reads high (sun is strong). The system is set for 72. priority one sensor reads 40, inside sensor reads 65, ambient reads 60= system will blow hot air to the floor out put, dash outlets will lightly flow 65 degree air so the sun doesnt roast you yet your feet are cold(if it blew hot air from all outlets, your upper body would be hot but your legs/feet would be cold). as the interior sensor reaches desired temp, air will be distrubuted through thee dash, defrost and floor with the warmest air coming out the floor and defrost, coolest air out the dash vents. Its a complex system!

The two sensors that will screw the system up the most are the intake and interior sensors. the system will function reasonably well with just those two sensors though it wont blend air temps between outlets if the sun sensor isnt working. If the outside sensor fails, it simply uses the intake sensor, if the intake sensor fails it will rely on the front sensor. However, since the intake takes priority over the outside sensor, if the intake sensor sends incorrect resistance info rather than failing, it will take priority and cause the unit to malfunction such as in your case.

The intake air sensor can be changed from the outside with patience. If it where me, I would pay the two hrs labor and let the dealer do it right.

On the interior roof warning lights there are two lights that keep coming on(orange and red) that look like snow flakes. What sre these warning lights for?


These are outside temp. warning lights. The Yellow light goes on when the outside temp. dips to 40 degrees to let you know that there is a possibility of frost. The Red light goes on when outside temp. dips to 30 degrees suggesting a possibility of icy conditions.

Outside temperature gage display quit working


outside temp sensor is located on the same bar that supports the hood latch. it sounds like something is liking the warmth of the engine compartment and starting to nest. open the hood and locate the sensor, folllow the wire to see where it is broken, do not be surprised to see that it may be chewed through.as vermin seem to make a meal of the wires insulation. they especially like to crawl under the intake and feast on the knock sensor wires. where I work in south Jersey I do a lot of wiring repairs due to rodent / vermin damage
