14 CUX Defender Coolant Temperature Sending Unit

I'm looking for a coolant temp sending unit for a 95 NAS D90. I've ordered three through the parts department here at the dealership and they are all the wrong resistance, so I'm looking for a good used one now.

Thanks!

I think I kept mine when I switched over to VDO. I'll check tonight and let you know.

Nope, I think that's what Land Rover is sending me. The ones I'm getting read about 500 kilohms IIRC. Basically it causes the temp gauge to read all the way hot when warmed up. The original one in the truck had an open circuit. I've already tried another gauge and wired it externally to verify.

I'm pretty sure your original would have worked with the VDO gauge. Thanks!

The Defender and Disco gauges are different ranges. To be clear you are looking for the sender for the gauge and not the 14CUX ECU, correct? The ECU uses a separate temperature sender.

I believe you want PRC2506 Any of your favourite Rover parts suppliers should have one.

I put a new Sender in when I installed my VDO gauge. I thought you needed to.

Item 14 is the gauge sender, PRC2506 for a 90 with a 3.9.

Item 20 is the sender for the EFI ECU, ETC8496.

Yes, the VDO gauges use a different range sender.

Yeah, you need to. I tired it first without the vdo sender and the needle went to it's max temp reading.

I scooped a VDO temp gage here but haven't installed it yet. What is the sender part # for a 94' with the VDO if the OEM sender is not?
BTW - my current OEM sender and gauge work fine.

For the VDO sender, it is either 1/8" NPT or M16x1.5 I was never clear when the change happened with the V8s.... Anyway, look to see what you have first. M16 is a lot bigger than 1/8" NPT.

Any 2-1/16" gauge will fit. VDO Vision series has the best look for the Defender, IMO.

I will do that when the speedometer fails and I will replace all of the gauges. I don't like the orange needle on the VDO vision series.

I guess I was mistaken about the sending unit for the VDO gauge. I was thinking I didn't replace it on my 300 tdi, but now I'm remembering that the previous owner installed that gauge.

You have a 3.9? The manifold looks like the picture?

The Disco/RR one is PRC7918.

What exactly is making you think the one you are getting is wrong? Have you tried ordering from a non-dealer?

I've checked the resistance of two other 94/95 D90's and both had the same reading which is different than the ones I'm getting through Land Rover. I haven't tried getting one through anyone else, I work at a dealer. I figured I'd check for a good used one before I order another new one that might not be right.

And no, I'm not using Microcat, I'm using the actual book for the part number which is PRC2506 and that is how it is packaged.

I would order an aftermarket one then. They are not exactly expensive. http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/PRC2506

It is possible that a 240-33 ohm range gauge may work or be close.
