Some cars have a second fuse box under the hood near the battery. See if your car doesn't have one of those.

The temperature guage sensor is located on the thermostat housing. I would start simple and check the wiring. clean the connectors.

Hook up a manifold gauge (mechanical temporary use gauge, used by mechanics) and test the oil pressure. You probably need to replace the gauge. The computer sends info through a printed circuit board behind gauge cluster and sometimes you have to replace the whole gauge cluster.

SOURCE: temp. gauge not working after having a heater core replaced.

if the engine cooling system was not filled and air bleed out the system may have an air pocket and this keeps the gauge from reading correctly.

SOURCE: temp gauge reads hot when cold

That wire you are unplugging is pinched and being shorted to ground ! You need to trace that wire until you find it . Also if anyone has done any repairs recently you may want to start looking in that area .

2004 sunfire; temperature gauge wont move. I checked the temp sensor and harness and they are both working fine. What else could it be?


the temperature sensor and the gauge sender are two different units
the wire to the temp sender could be broken or fallen of the sender
that wire has power to it and needs to be connected to the sender so that the variable resistance in the sender can work the gauge

2002 dodge diesel Temperature gauge not working,have changed Coolant temperature sensor, still not working


possibly change the wrong unit
gauges work from a sender unit not a sensor
it is located next to the thermostat housing normally and has only 1 wire connection
they work by having power through the gauge to the sender through variable resistance that is affected by heat to ground
test disconnect the wire from the sender
turn on the ignition key , ground out the wire and the gauge should go straight to full hot
sensors on the other hand have more wires and relay the coolant temp to the ECM so that air/fuel ratios can be adjusted , and fans switched on as required

I have a 2008 Chevy Colorado and today my temp


when a temp gauge drops to cold ,it indicates a problem in the cooling system
temp gauge sender units need water to activate the resistance that makes the gauge read so a falling gauge indicates no water around the sender unit --- air lock in the system--faulty wire connection to the gauge sender unit
the ac unit is not connected to the temp gauge so there may be another separate problem there
the temp sensor is an entirely different unit to the temp gauge sender unit and the short term working would be from an altered coolant level from changing that sensor --air lock in system
the temp sensor connects to the ECM to activate the fans and monitor engine operating temp so as to keep the air/fuel mixture exact for the engine conditions
the temp sender unit just makes the temp gauge read
a faulty thermostat will either be stuck open and the engine temp will take a long time to rise or it will be stuck closed and that will cause an overheat very quickly

Temp gauge does not work


there is a single wire connected to a temp sensor on the right side of the engine (pass side) just under the exhaust manifold. A common problem is the wire rests on manifold and burns or shorts out to manifold which results in loss of temp display. find wire, repair and replace on sensor. I found that crimping on a gator clip and attach it to sensor works just fine. another issue not discussed is the plug on the end of the wire gets loose and although it may be on the sensor its not making a good connection. thus why I use the gator clip to ensure connection. The temp sensor by the thermostat is only for the ECM and has no function with the gauges.

Temp gauge not registering and cooling fan's run continuously


the temp gauge works of a different sender to the coolant sensor. IT has 1 wire only and changes resistance as the water heats up there by moving the needle on the gauge up the scale Check that the wire is tight on the sender unit and if so then replace the sender unit.. The difficulty in re starting the motor may be because it is over heating but you would not know this because of the faulty sender unit.

Replaced water pump thermostat temp sensor but temp gauge read all the way up when car is first started 3100 engine in 1996 monte carlo


For the temp gauge to read at full heat when the engine is cold is an indication of a short in the wire to the sender unit or you have connected the wrong wire to the sensor/sender unit.

My landcruiser 79 series ute over heated temp gauge went into red replaced pump belts filled up with new coolant but now the gauge just stays in red permanently even when u first start car from cold.


You should replace the temp guage sender unit. First disconnect wire from sender and with a test light connect one end to wire and one to earth turn ignition on and gauge should start at base and slowly work its way up. Faulty sender. If gauge still on full when disconnected from sender then gauge is either stuck and need replacing

I HAVE A COLT 2.8 DIESEL TURBO CLUB CAB. MY TEMP GAUGE IS NOT WORKING. ON THE TEMP SENDER THERE IS TWO WIRES. WHEN I EARTH THE ONE WIRE THE TEMP GAUGE IS GOING FULLY UP. MY QUESTION IS WHAT MUST THE OTHER...


Dear Sir,
We can do one thing is that if temp meter goes up after wire connected to earth ,then please replace temp sender unit it will solve your problem, normally there no necessary for 2 wire at temp sender unit, if it is factory condition wire then let it be , if not then any technician had done that for other issue,replace sender unit your problem will solve 100%.
Thanks.

I have a 91 bravada all gauges work but my temp can some help


Find and check the temperature gauge sensor 'sender' unit on the engine.
To test:-
- if you ground the wire connected to the sender the gauge should go to full scale high,
- open circuit the gauge should read zero (nil deflection).
If above test ok, replace the temperature sender unit with correctly specified item.
