Any ideas on this, the car shows 50 on the temp gauge at all times, when i put the key in the ignition and start the car from cold, also the red temp light flashes on and off from time to time. I have flushed the system out fitted a new thermostat and sensor and still no difference. the heater blast out nice hot air once the car has warmed up and the radiator fan cuts in and out! :confused:

Faulty Guage!?

To check if it is a faulty guage remove the wire from the sender and earth it against car, now you will need another person to sit in the car while you earth against engine to see if the guage goes right round to max or not!? If not the guage is shot!

Well i have tried a spare set of working guages and the temp guage still does not work and the warning light flashes even though the fans are cutting in and out correctly, so i guess there must be an earth problem or a break in the cable somewhere, guess what i will be doing on Sunday then!!:cry:
