Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.

1998 subaru forester overheating heater blows cold air


Any chance of a head gasket leak? Is the coolant level still full? These were known for head gasket issues. Coolant is a closed system and level will not drop unless there is a leak. Make sure there is no air in the system. Replace the radiator cap to make sure that it is operating properly.

Replaced raditor now engine light is on and gauge only marks cold


before you check the following items, make sure your brain has been reset, remove positive batt cable from battery leave disco for 20 minutes , then reconect, some of the bad info may not have been removed from prevoius problems.first check your fan, make sure it is turning on and off, if not check your coolant temp sensor , if o.k it may be the gauge , (if the fan is working properly the engine temp is probably o.k , if not take to get the codes on your motor checked.It is very important to make sure your cooling system works correctly, if not resolved can lead to engine failure(head gasket)If no problem found it may just be a defective gauge.

Location of Turn signal flasher for 95 Nissan 4wd 4cyl MT


Found it!! - It is indeed under the dash, directly above the clutch pedal arm and attached to the brake support bracket. The original one was black and NOT round. It's about 1.5 inches long and 1 inch square. The three wires drop down out of the bottom and there is a connector release you have to push to release the wires. The flasher relay itself can slide off the mounting point, with a little extra pressure, pushing towards the left side (outward) of the truck. (left hand drive models).
