Temp gauge

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Sorry for the stupid q's but my temp gauge isn't working - Its an '82 528i. The gauge blips when I turn on the ignition so I guess its getting power - all of the other gauges in the binnacle work so whilst it could be the SI batteries, I wondered if this could just be a temp sensor failure?

Thoughts? 

Anything else that could cause this?

Take the spade connector off the sender( by the temp sensors) and quickly short to the sender housing, get someone to sit in the car while you do it and get them to signal any movement. The needle should deflect 100%, if so then you have a faulty sender, if not then you have another fault.

Thanks for all your help on this - Bought a new battery-less SI board from Ivo Christov and fitted it yesterday - All gauges work perfectly now! 

105 Euro + 19 Euro P+P to Sydney - Absolute bargain!
