You did not Identify what car it is? Temperature Sensor for the Cooling system is normally located near the Thermostat Housing or mounted in the Radiator itself but need more information to properly answer your question

Why my engine coolant temperature gauge stay to stucked to zero?


Could be a bad sensor, broken wire or corroded connection. Start with the easy/cheap stuff by doing an inspection of the wiring and connections. Then check the sensor. You could even try pulling the sensor and placing it in really hot water. Dont run the engine but turn the key so the gauges work. Sometimes they don't read if there is an air bubble stuck there.

Radiator fans not coming on. replaced thermostat and cooling sensor


Hi Bill, is the engine actually getting hot enough for the fans to come on? if the engine does have overheating problem (but you say the temp gauge reads normal) then i would check the operation of the engine temp switch, there are two, one for the gauge and one for the fans.

Car has been sitting overnight thermostat recently replaced as well as the temp sensor still reads hot


If vehicle reads hot when it sits overnight and is actually cold, there is an issue with the temp gauge... temp sensor... wiring.... . You didn't state year/make/ model so it could even be a BCM issue.

Temp dial reads hot but is not overheating


The temp sensor, is a thermistor resistor supplying restricted voltage to the gauge depending on the heat of the engine, if it has gone faulty (close circuit) the gauge will read hot all the time. You need to find the sensor, generally near the top of the engine, thermostat area and unplug it, the gauge will then not read. Replace the sensor. (WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD)

I replaced my water pump in my 1999 gmc yukon my check gauge light stayed on and temp gauge stayed over to hot side. can i reset it?


Not exactly.
The check gauge warning light is on because the temp gauge is reading hot.
Does the temp gauge read hot as soon as you turn the key switch on, or not until the engine as run for a few minutes ?
If it reads hot without the engine being started, there may be a short in the wiring or the sensor may have failed.

2007 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. I was driving and my digital dashboard reported engine hot and AC turned off. My temperature gauge read cool. What do I need to replace?


This sounds like a bad coolant temp sensor that give computer false reading, check the coolant temp sensor connector and if it is good with no bad wires to connector then replace coolant temp sensor , when the computer gets a signal from temp sensor that engine is hot it turns fans on high speed to cool radiator and displays a/c turned off , if this truck does not have electric cooling fans then they wont run just explaining what happens depending on engine and cooling set up. replace coolant temp sensor and check connector.

Hi: I read your answer to the problem with the 1999 Mercury Mistique temperature gauge. I'm having a similar problem. My temperature gauge is broken in the cold position. And, as far as I can tell,...


Very correct the ECT is a 2 wire thermistor,when coolant temp increases, the resistance andsignal voltage decrease,If you disconnect the sensor the fan goes on, you just trouble shooted the vehicle cooling fan switch, If anything the signal to the gauge itself may be non-op and not getting to the indicator, try this with vehicle at warm up temperature if you turn the A/C does the fan turn on.it should if it doesnt the power juction box (fuse and relay in engine compartment should be checked, for any opeen fuses, By the way the guage information is from the PCM

Temp gauge goes to hot and engine looses power.


hi.. your coolant temp sensor may be getting a bad reading, it also opperates as a compensator so it may effect the power of the vehicle.. check that the engine is actualy hot when it says and your car will probably run alot better if you change it anyway..

The 2 AC fsnd turns on when the Engine temperarure hot. It receives the signal from ECU throught the Engin temperature sensor ( Coolant). Your case happens since the Engine Temp sensor went bad. At beginning the temp sensor can not produce any resistance just like open then ECU thinking engine hot turns on the Fan. When your engine ia about 85, it is a normal temp then the sensor could produce some resistance matching the look up tabel for the ECU, then the ECU turn off the Fan. Some pepople has it run all the way since the wire contact to the sensor was off. Replace the Engin Temp sensor to take care of the problem.
You have 2 temp sensors on top engine, one for your temp read out, one for the fan purpose. If you don't know which one, wait for your temp at 85 and the fan is stopping, then unplug one, imediately the fan goes on, that the one. Good luck.
