A few problems with my 156 JTS
I am new to 156 ownership and have already found a couple of problems with the 156. It is a 2002 52 plate
Firstly the temp gauge.
On normal running it will stay at just over 50, this will then rise to about 75 when stationary then the fan will cut in. Am I right in thinking normal running should be 75 and fan should cut in at 90? If this is the case the engine is behaving at the right temperatures but the gage is out, what would this problem be, thermostat or temp sender?
Airbag light and loose cables
This comes and goes with speedbumps, I have checked the yellow cables under both seats to reseat them but haven't quite worked out how to open the plastic box they are in. But whilst under here I found a loose cable that plugs into nothing, am I right in thinking this is for heated seats (which I do not have). Also I hear there is another airbag contact in the boot. can anyone hazard a guess as to where this is?
The windscreen washers do not work at all. I get no noise coming from the washer motor but the wipers do go through the "Clean" cycle of 3 swipes. What would the problem be here? The headlight washers work perfectly.
I know there is a fair amount wrong but I got a good price.
