what is this thingy

as a smart cookie i am i broke a bit while tearing the dash apart. but i havent a clue what it is.

Its the thingy (good english i know) to the left of the steering wheel under its own cover. looks like it has a rubber cone on the end with some electronics and stuff behind it. has a 4 pin harness behind it. is it important??? probably.

anyway any help would be nice.

as well, where do i find the wires for the lambda sensor. i know where the sensor is but i was hoping it must connect to something somewhere more convenient to test to see if its not working

Re: what is this thingy

That's probably the cabin temperature sensor, for the automatic climate control system, if you have that fitted.

You don't need to have Air-Con to have the Climate Control system (you have a button marked ECON or a blank buton in its place, if you have or don't have air-con, respectively).

Anyhow, if you have the digital panel with the interior/external temperature displayed, then you have the automatic CC system.

The lambada probe wires surface in the engine bay, in the corner nearest the brake master cylinder. It's a fairly chunky plug held together with a big spring clip. 4 pins inside.
