THE TEMP GAUGE WORKS ON A LIVE FEED, TO THE GAUGE, WHEN THE COOLING SYSTEM GETS HOT THE GAUGE RECIEVES A SIGNAL FROM THE TEMP SWITCH WHICH IS ON THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING ON THIS MACHINE, ON THE RH SIDE OF THE BIKE UNDER THE INFILL BELOW THE RH HANDLEBAR, THE MOST OBVIOUSE REASON FOR THIS FAULT IS THAT THE WIRE HAS COME OF THE UNIT AND IS TOUCHING THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING, THUS MAKING AN EARTH, OR EVEN IT MAY HAVE BECOME HOT BURNING THE WIRE INSULATION AND IS JUST EARTHING OUT, WITH THE KEY TURNED ON REMOVE THE WIRE FROM THE TEMP SWITCH AND THE GAUGE SHOULD THEN DROP BACK DOWN, IF WHEN YOU REMOVE THIS WIRE THE GAUGE STAYS UNAFECTED THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE SAME WIRE BUT HIGHER UP THE LOOM, IF ALL ELSS FAILS YOU COULD REPLACE THE WIRE EXTERNALY LEAVING THE OLD WIRE DISCONECTED TO SEE IF IT WORKS THIS WILL ELIMENATE THE GAUGE BEING FAULTY, HOPE I HAVENT GONE ON TO MUCH, SIMPLE CHECK

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

Why does my temp gauge rise to hot when the van is off - but as soon as the key is switched on it goes back to the cold end of the temp gauge


The gauge is unpowered when you turn the key off, so the needle can go wherever it wants to. When you turn the key on, the gauge gets power and will show the actual engine coolant temperature.

How do i fix my gilera dna 125 from over heating i turn my key and its flashing on 120 and doesnt change i havent added any anti freeze yet not sure if it will change things


if you turn the key on and the gauge goes to overheat immediately ( hasn't been running and is cold) that indicates a fault in the wiring to the temperature sender unit ( probably fell of the unit and is touching on the engine or head or frame )
it may have a coolant temperature sensor ( tells the fan when to turn on if stationary) and that may be faulty

Why my 1994 acura legend temperature gauge goes strait to hot when I crank up my car


temperature gauges go straight to hot when the wire to the sender unit is shorting out. Check the fuse for the sun roof as it may be a coincidence.as the 2 are not connected.

Temperature affecting ignition


Hi ,
One thing you can try :
Change your spark plugs to a cooler type which will help the bike to run cooler and will eliminate the start dificulties when hot . You will notice that in winter time it will be harder to start but at that time you may swap back to the other plugs .
Try that to start with and let me know how you go .

if the gauge goes straight to half, even when the engine is stone cold, i would suspect a bad temperature gauge sending unit. you will find it near the thermostat housing. good luck!

2005 nissan frontier. the temperature gauge goes all the way to hot when you turn the key on, even before you start the truck.


There is a coolant temperature switch that tells the guage what temp. to read. Try changing the switch first, should be fairly inexpensive and not very hard to do.
