I have a 08 nitro that the cooling fan never comes in causing over heating I've replaced water pump radiator heater core because it was bad the relay seems fine power coming in and out but no fan on


check fuses and coolant temp sensor
the coolant temperature sensor unit ( that is SENSOR not gauge sender unit) sends a report to the ecm to turn on the radiator fan when the temp is reached
If the fan is not coming on then the circuit is broken--sensor, wires ,fuses relay, fan-ecm
all have to be checked out

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

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.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox and had my cluster repaired for the temp gauge. Now it works but will not drop the entire way after it cools down. I was told that this is a temp problem with GM vehicles...


From what I just read about your vehicle,it has a history problem with the gauge,may be the coolant temperature sender or the gauge,it says the whole cluster will have to be changed to be fixed if the gauge is bad,found some forums and all had gauge problems.Right above the coolant temperature sensor is the coolant temperature sender,this is what sends the temperature to your gauge,the sensor sends a signal to the computer,they may have replaced the wrong one,here's a link to the sensor,the hole above it is where the sender goes,it's a one prong part,the sensor is a 2 prong part.A lot of people don't know that there are 2 types of coolant temperature gauge sending unit and sensor.

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.

The Sending Unit is Inside the Fuel Tank at the End of the Intake Line. You will have to Drop the Tank and Change it. Your Guage should be just fine after the Repair
