Hi, the sender is located at the front of the driver's side of the intake manifold. A single wire slides onto a threaded pole on top of the sender. Pull the wire off of the pole.

1993 explorer temp gauge not working, change coolant temp sensor no luck, does this model have a coolant temp switch?


In fact it does! he coolant sensor is used by the PCM to control the engine fuel ratios at various temperatures. The coolant switch is used only for the gauge, since the explorer has a mechanical rather than an electric fan. Here are pictures, first is the Coolant Sensor (which you claimed to have replaced), then the switch, which is probably what you need. If the switch doesn't fix the problem, the gauge itself is probably faulty.

Primary cooling fan only comes on when i turn ac on


You would need a scanner and an inferred temp sensor to troubleshoot the system.
You need to know what the actual engine temp is, and what the temp sensor is telling the computer.
If and when the engine reaches 220 degrees, the engine temp sensor should be sending that data to the computer and it should ground the fan relay to activate it.
Unplugging the sensor and having the fan run tells you the sensor is connected, and there should have been a trouble code set at that time.
It is possible the coolant level is low, or something else preventing the temp sensor sending the correct data.

Temperature guage has erratic reading everytime I start up. Hot Or Cold it does not matter. I replaced the Temp sensor with a new one. Still behaves as before.


There are two pieces on your car for temp related functions. There is a temp sensor which you replaced but there is also a colling temp switch. The sensor feends the ecm and works with the fuel system. It does not control the guage. The switch is what controls the guage. Thats what you need to replace. In the even your car is one of the rare one that only uses one sensor then you need to check the wires going to and comming from the sensor. You will probably find a loose or corroded connection somewhere in the line.

2003 Ford Ranger Heat Sensor


if you are referring to the coolant temp sensor and not the coolant temp switch,then yes,this sensor tells the ecm what temp the engine is at and the ecm delivers the correct amount of fuel to the vehicle.The switch in most cases just sends the signal to the guage or light.

Cooling fan wont work


The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.
