My race bike with 12.5:1 compression and a 5 degree advancer runs between 220-240 F during a race, and I have an extra oil cooler under the tail. I would not let it get over 250 F

Recently purchased clock with tempature and humidity dials, humidistat not working It is outdoors in southwest Florida and it says the humidity is 50 %,no warranty or instructions

what makes you think that the humidity is not correct
it is a indicator that will not move much so don't expect it to move around like a temp gauge or barometer

Where is the thermostat fuse at

There is a fuse for the gauges, If no other gauges work then I'd suspect the fuse. If only the temp gauge is acting up, look at the temp sensor wiring or the sensor itself.

Temperature gauge not accurate

Most manufacturers do not supply the gauge with the correct temp. It is a computer generated guess that is displayed. If computer sees engine tempature getting warm then it will increase gauge. I had a car that someone removed the thermostat on and it would still show after three minutes it was at operating temp. But heater didn't put out heat for almost 45 minutes. A discussion with a gm engineer made me start testing others. Dodge crystler Mitsubishi gm and many others use this fake gauge. Dodge Cummins use it also for their oil pressure gauge. The only way to have accurate temp gauge is install a manual one or watch it through the scan tool.

My honda sounds like it needs to shift again and the heat gauge never raises

Could be a faulty thermostat or a faulty temp sensor.
As long as the computer sees the engine temp is cold it will restrict power to protect the engine.
You would need to know if the engine is getting up to normal temp.
The engine can be "cold" and still produce some heat thru the heater.

I'm looking at a used 1994 Toyota pickup truck to buy. The temperature gauge stays on cold and does not move. Do you have any idea what might be wrong with it? I'm worried I'll buy it and then...

first u need to do before u buy it is make sure it is not overheating bring the truck to a service center an have them check the tempature at the thermostat housing with a infared temp gauge...if the temp is around 180- 200 then that is acceptable, but then u need to have the prob looked at, it could be a broken temp gauge or a faulty tempature sending unit

My Tempeture Gauge went through the roof. I pulled over thinking my engine was overheating, it was not. Now my tempeture gauge is interfearing with my speedometer. When I am driving 65 i am really only...

Its likely a bad temature sensor there is two differant ones for the tempature one is called the ECT if that one were bad the vehicle wouldn't be running so good because it tells the computer what the engine temp is the other one controls the gauge olny that sounds like it because it can effict readings on other daskboard instremants . So as long as you are not over heating coolant levels oil is up there and its running ok its a simple fix that you could do your self for under 20 dollars. The sensor is located near where the radiator the upper one hooks to the engine it will have one wire going to it the ECT will have three and be located vary close to it because thats the best place for it to get the best reading of the engine coolant tempature and thats what it needs to know

Wireing tempature gauge

Outside temp sensor located at inner fairing, it is tied to left fairing frame just above cigarette lighter.
On OEM parts,
Air Temp Gauge pin#1 = Orange +12 Volt
Air Temp Gauge pin#2 = Black - ground
Air Temp Gauge pin#3 = Air Temp sensor pin#1
