Temp sender not working and advice on how to test it.

Recommended Posts

The old temp sensor does not seem to be working as i have no reading on the gauge. Is there a way to test it before i remove the sender, just in case its not that?

 

Thanks, 

Andy

pull the connector off the sender and give it an earth gauge should sweep over to max

I suppose you could also put a resistance meter on the sender when cold value should decrease as warms up will tell you if the sender is dead or you have a wiring issue or gauge.
