I would not have replaced the sensor, but replaced the temp gauge assembly itself..........normally a temp sensor does not "drop out" but is either full defelction or off........., or alternatively can sometimes misread......but the dropping out is unfortunately due to the gauge being faulty.........!!

Temp guage not working 1999 alero


One advantage us dealer tech's have over a week end warrior is that we have factory service repair information and have factory scan tool ,Tech 2 , to check data coming into the instrument cluster . Most of you probably don't even think about how that coolant temp infor shows up on the gauge , except by a coolant sensor !

High Temperature Indicator
The high temperature Indicator function handles the control of the Engine Temperature Gauge Display and the red High Temperature indicator. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) reads the Coolant Temperature Sensor, filters the messages, and sends the coolant temperature to the instrument cluster via a Class 2 serial data message. The PCM monitors the coolant sensor in order to determine a fault. The PCM transmits the Class 2 serial data coolant temperature report messages to the instrument cluster for the temperature gauge display and for the high temperature indicator control.
The instrument cluster receives the engine temperature data in the Class 2 serial data message from the PCM. The instrument cluster converts this data into a temperature gauge pointer position which drives the gauge pointer. The instrument cluster also uses this data in order to determine the high temperature indicator control.
The Body Control Module (BCM) looks for the high temperature indicator Class 2 serial data report from the instrument cluster and triggers a chime when the indicator is ON.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop , rather then just replacing parts .

When jackaroo 1988 is motoring where does the needle in the temperature gauge normally be


If your temp gauge has only the cold (C) or hot (H) letters then the operating range would be the width of the needle under 1/2 way between c and h. If it remains steady at slightly over 1/2 way that would be just the setting of the gauge. How to get to know where the needle would sit at a specific position in relation to water temp. Do the following
Remove the temp sender unit and attach an earth wire to the body of the unit to earth. Place the sender unit in a container of water up to the threads .Put a mercury thermometer in the container beside the sender unit Apply heat to the container and watch the gauge needle move in relation to the thermometer reading. Operating temp will be about 80 degrees C on the thermometer and that would be about 1/2 way on the gauge.

Temp. gauge don't move past half on 1996 VW Jetta


Sounds normal. If the gauge moved further over, it would indicate an overheating problem, wouldn't it? Check that engine is at normal operating temperature after it warms up. If it is running too cold, your thermostat might be stuck open.

When i am driving my 2002 buick rendevous, the temperature gauge sits between 1/4 and 1/2. however when i have to sit idle ( ex. like at a red light) the temperature gauge creeps up to between 1/2 and...


This is normal. The gauge should sit at around the 1/2 mark. And it will go up at idle until the fans kick on then go back down some. Fans will kick on around 210 degress

My 03 Jetta TDI temperature gauge had been indicating that the vehicle is operating at below normal temp some of the time. Even after a highway run. I had not had a rad flush in since l owned the car...


I think the light you are seeing is for low coolant. There may have been a small air pocket in the system. So just check the coolant level. If it is low add some. It's not uncommon to add a small amount a day or two after work was done on the coolant system.

Why won't the oil and temperature gauge work on


you should switch the temperature sensor and oil pressure sensor you had on your first engine,because your new engine must come with the light indicator dashboard so the sensor of your new engine are not compatible with your gauges....lipak!...
