    Astra 2000 1.4 AC Car running fine. Not over heating .But when reaches normal temp cooling warning light come on and condenser fan runs. AC working very well -very cold.What is going on? Replaced thermostat, coolant and sensor .No change.Not keen on paying exorbitant GM dealer diagnostic fee. It ought to be Free and then they make their money out of you. You would be more inclined to use dealers and everyone would be happy.

Hi there,

When cold, remove plug of the temperature sensor usually found at the top of the radiator (but may be on thermostat area)

Check sensor with a meter - should be normally open (non conducting)

If faulty, fit a replacement. (undo cap of coolant system, then retighten, undo and replace sensor quickly to avoid too much coolant loss, then top up system.) You can drain the system, but sometimes causes airlocks and more problems.

Vauxhall combo van, the spanner light comes on and stays on when ignition is switched on, and the mileage stays illuminated at all times even when the key is removed, just bought van any clues, drives well...

Can mean many things, automatic gearbox, emissions problems and if it flashes, it is an immobilizer fault. The car can be driven, if running ok but the engine management system should be checked ASAP. You will need EOBD diagnostic equipment to find cause. vauxhall can check this 4 u but it will cost u £47 unfortuanely but 4 that price u can get the diagnostic reader ur self the port is under the ash tray or the cover below the hand brakeRAC.htm">>RAC.htm
