Hi fellow Alfisti,
I have a real head scratcher for you....well it's ceratinly got be scratching
My water temp gauge, on my GTV phase1, when the car starts, gradually and quickly go off the scale and sits at 130.
I have replaced the sender( the one in the block)..same result
I have replaced the Gauges..same result
I have removed the sender from the block and hooked it up but it then just sits at 50 and doesn't move. as if it's not powered.
As soon I touch the sender unit to the block, or any earth...it's rises to 130 again.
The senders, this is my third, work, the gauges, I have 2, give me no reason to doubt them, so what else could it be ?
I've tried to trace the wiring and it disappears into the bulkhead but cannot see where it comes out. The manual points to a connector G308 in the line between sender and gauge but can I find it ? can I F
!! anyone know where this connector, code name Houdini, is ?
Has anyone got any ideas ? I've run out of parts to buy...and although the fans kick in and the water is topped up, I'm getting nervous in this weather.
Any help or advice is, always, greatly received.
