the temp guage is not working, anyone know where the sending unit is?
I saw the date and good info is good info,no matter how old it is - the thread is still here and my SEARCH led me to it,i found it slightly helpful and have added to it - now if anyone knows how to test the thermo sensor,that would be a big help toogoldwing warrior
You posted on a 3 year old thread. Watch the dates.
You can access it from the right side with just the plastic lower removed by using a long extension. If the system is still sealed (cap on the radiator) and you are ready with the new one then you will not loose much coolant at all and can then just top off the radiator afterwards.
Again working from the front backwards you have the top radiator hose, the thermostat housing, the fan sensor switch (with only one wire), then the heat sensor (two wires). The oil sensor is located atop the engine case above the transmission located almost centered on the engine behind the fuel pump (also one wire).
Exactly - People are talking about 2 different things here!This is a big problem with this thread. It's suppose to be about the temp sender. Unfortunately, it's been confused with the thermostatic switch. They are not the same. The thermostatic switch can be changed without removing the plate or radiator. But you'll have to really work to change the sending unit.
As i'm this far in already,should i just replace the THERMO SENSOR .The picture shows A the thermosensor and it's relative position
B is the thermoswitch which is located on the thermostat cover.
Thermosensor (A) on the Interstate is a single pole model which is grounded through the body.
Thermosensor (A) on the Aspencade and possibly LTD is a two spade model on which one of the spades is grounded. As is shown in the picture.
On the picture in post # 10 the thermoswitch is actually out of the picture hanging down in front the one shown in position is the thermosensor on an ASpencade
The other picture in this post is a testing procedure for the thermosensor unfortunately it is a little confusing as it shows a two pin sensor in the center picture and a single pin sensor in the bottom picture without any explanations (Typical of a Honda Manual)
The Interstate single pole thermosensor can be used on the the Aspencade providing the correct wire is used to send the info to the gauge. This wire is identified by a blue sleeve on a green wire at the six pin connector where the sub harness connects to the main harness on the left side front under the false tank
