This is the kind of thing that makes you curse
(again) about british auto electrical systems.
Long story short: i swapped my temp gauge and
sender with the VDO units and since that my temp
is not climbing over... 110/120º F. Outside temp
is around 28º C (sorry northern fellas
) A/C on,
traffic jam, etc... so i finally decided to start the
The gauge is working fine, if you plug to ground or negative
the sender connector on the back of the gauge, the needle
will travel all the way. If you by-pass the sender and
make a direct ground between engine (or chassis) and
the connector on the sender, needle will travel about
half the way.
So i started checking the wire and found out that it
goes in and out the tachometer, and this is where
i loose the connection (partially).
So, before i go any deeper, anyone know why in the name
of the rover gods, my temp signal wire has to make a stop
in the tachometer ?
