If the engine is not HOT. The coolant sensor is bad. Computer will shut engine down to protect it from damage.

Temp guage not working 1999 alero


One advantage us dealer tech's have over a week end warrior is that we have factory service repair information and have factory scan tool ,Tech 2 , to check data coming into the instrument cluster . Most of you probably don't even think about how that coolant temp infor shows up on the gauge , except by a coolant sensor !

High Temperature Indicator
The high temperature Indicator function handles the control of the Engine Temperature Gauge Display and the red High Temperature indicator. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) reads the Coolant Temperature Sensor, filters the messages, and sends the coolant temperature to the instrument cluster via a Class 2 serial data message. The PCM monitors the coolant sensor in order to determine a fault. The PCM transmits the Class 2 serial data coolant temperature report messages to the instrument cluster for the temperature gauge display and for the high temperature indicator control.
The instrument cluster receives the engine temperature data in the Class 2 serial data message from the PCM. The instrument cluster converts this data into a temperature gauge pointer position which drives the gauge pointer. The instrument cluster also uses this data in order to determine the high temperature indicator control.
The Body Control Module (BCM) looks for the high temperature indicator Class 2 serial data report from the instrument cluster and triggers a chime when the indicator is ON.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop , rather then just replacing parts .

Code active, unplug coolant sensor dash gauge stops reading


What make vehicle ? some vehicles have two coolant sensors . One for temp. gauge an another one for the ECM / PCM input. Do you have a check engine light lit ?

A DTC will be set if an abnormal reading occurs, P0116 for sensor performance, P0117 low input or

P0118 for a high input. The coolant temperature sensor temperature reading should closely match the

air charge/manifold temperature reading on a scan tool if the engine has not been run for over an hour.
The sensor circuit can be checked for proper voltage using a voltmeter.

Temperature gauge goes up down


It sounds like the sending unit at the engine is faulty. Replace it first and if the problem still persists then check the gauge itself. If everything checks out make sure that the thermostat in the engine is not sticking causing the temp to rise rapidly and then when it opens it falls but shuts right away. I would check the sending unit first since that would cause the gauge to act weird.

Volvo V40 will turn over but will not start when the temp gauge is on high. The temp of the car is normal and the gauge will evetually fall back and the car will start.


Plz check your temperature sending unit that feeds computer (NOT TEMP GAUGE ON INSTRUMENT PANEL). Also, Have checked that engine coolant isnt air bound, which will not allow coolant to circulate properly throughout the engine and cause immediate overheating and safety engine shut-off

On my 1997 honda accord lx the temperature gauge goes up to the red and the fan does not kick on,but the car does not overheat.what is going on?


If you gauge is readin g that high, you are over heating, maybe not to the point of engine shut down or hose failure. I suspect the thermo sensor that is mounted in the radiator is not operating, therefo causing the cooling fan not to function at high temps.
I recommend you have this checked quickly.

Temp. gauge reads high some times. but the motor really isnt hot


It sounds like the coolant temperature sensor is beginning to fail. It is highly unlikely that the in-dash gauge is a problem. The coolant temp sensor inputs to the computer affecting everything from radiator fan speed, engine fuel/air calibration and a variety of other parameters.

Be absolutely certain to "burp" every bubble of atmosphere from the coolant system too. Air bubbles have the amazing ability to prevent coolant flow and will cause all sorts of problems, especially if the bubble wants to hang around the temperature sensor location.

Normal operating temperature is going to be around 210 F.

Most Autozone, Advance locations will read engine problem codes at no charge, so drop by one of those locations and let them read the problem code.

My guess will be the coolant temperature sensor. Then have the problem code reset, remove all air from the coolant and let us know how this worked.

Temp gauge goes high. Radiator leak just the


It could well be a faulty thermostat- test or replace same.
Could also be a blocked radiator core, - check coolant or airflow is not restricted,
Ensure any radiator leaks are repaired,
Ensure coolant level is correct, without airlocks - bleed as necessary on re-fill,
Check operation of cooling fan - ensure fan runs at appropriate engine temperature - if not check sensor switch and associated relay operation.
Thermostat is located at the end of top radiator hose where it connects to engine housing.

Intermitant temperature


Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.
