Question about 2006 Volvo S60

1 Answer

The engine temperature gauge suddenly stopped working on my 2006 S60. I assume it is the sensor as the car is running fine, the heater and engine cooling fan are working properly. I haven't been able to find a Haynes manual for the car so I'm not sure where the sensor is located.

I'm afraid that my online resource doesn't have data on this vehicle. Which means that the best source of information will be a Repair Manual from the manufacturer, or a Haynes or Chilton manual if available.

One can try to locate the sensor by looking for a one or two wire sensor that screws into the 'hot' part of the engine block or cylinder head.

The above part sells for about $35 at Autozone.

Why does the temp gauge indicate the car is running hot when it is not?


Ahh ... the gas gauge / fuel level gauge does not work, either.

Maybe you need to replace the motors that are behind those dials. People are getting charged $300-$500 to have the fuel gauge replaced when the problem really is the little motor - 5 or 6 of them for less than $30. 2003 Buick LeSabre owners are having the same problem with their fuel gauges being erratic.

High fuel consume


Maybe it is running higher than it should. Best guess would be to change the temperature switch for the engine controls and possibly the thermostat. Your engine has a "cold start sequence" and it will increase RPM and enrich the fuel to allow the engine to run better when cold starting.

The problem is the loss of signal after the engine warms up. If the water temp gauge seems normal, likely the temperature sensor is causing your problem. There can be 2 temperature sensors on your truck, one works the dash gauge and the other works the engine controls.

2006 f150- temperature gauge stays cold but "check gauges" flashes in mini message center.


Since the temp gauge is not working correctly, you get the warning message.
Could be a faulty temp sensor or a problem in the wiring harness.

Why doesn't my car get up to operating temperature?


Well the first question would be what does the temp gauge on the dash show after you have run the engine for 5 or 10 min ?
If the gauge is in the middle of the temp range the engine is getting hot and either the heater core is stopped up or you have a problem with the blend door under the dash.
If the temp gauge is staying around the cold mark the thermostat is not closing to warm up the engine.
I am assuming the radiator is full of coolant.

The temperature gauge says engine temp high stop safely, can you tell me what is causing this and when i brought it to the garage they said everything is fine water is been pumped around


It could be your temp sensor. If it says that, your car is overheating. That is not good. It could cause major problems. You should check your fluid levels and make sure they are all ok. You might have a leak or something.

Heating has suddenly stopped working


Start by cheking the coolant level first and add as necessary. If it is low, add, and then start and turn on the heat to full and check operation. it is possible that you have a small leak and have not noticed an operating/overheating issue. Let me know if you need anything further.

Where is the temperature guage located under the hood in my pontiac g6. I can not find it to replace.


The temperature gauge is actually a needle that read a range of Hot/Cold on the dash instrument cluster. If you are referring to the coolant temperature sensor, the location depends on the engine size. Post the engine size and we'll answer it better.
