Ok in that case I'll ring vx tomorrow and get the correct 1 and hope that's the one that's at fault. It'll take 2 mins to fit it due to its location. I'll get back on what they say and if its sorted it out fingers crossed that's it and it doesn't need a whole new thermostat doing.There are so many sensors that the the same or similar,i'm going by the correct Vx part numbers for both positions
Just an update....rang vauxhall and asked which temp sensor I need they stated there's only 1 which is situated in the radiator which I've already done. Messaged vaux place on ebay and they've said the same so I'm stumped. It's booked into vauxhall next Wednesday. I'm convinced it's the thermostat stuck open but will see.There are so many sensors that the the same or similar,i'm going by the correct Vx part numbers for both positions
Yeh its bloody frustrating to say the least. I sent him a screenshot of that pic. He said there's only 1 temp sensor listed apart from the 1 in the thermostat itself.
the parts bloke at vauxhall didn't have a clue....not sure if hes the cleaner covering for the parts bloke haha. I'm tempted to just order a temp sensor and put it innsee if that sorts in. If they both do the same job as in temperature sensor they surely they've gotta be the same just in different locations.But there isn't one in the thermostat, that connector in the stat is for the map controlled stat heater,
who are you talking to,the cleaner ? lol
Sounds to me like the engine temp sensor could be failing when it gets hot. A diagnostic tool with live data would confirm this if so.The temp gauge stops working as soon as the display says ac turned off due to high engine temperature and then the rad fan runs all the time.
Sounds about right. I'd thatsvthe cade I just need to get the corresponding part number for the one in the upper part of the engine not the 1 in the lower part of the radNot sure what the difference is tbh,it may be the reading range/internal resistance or possibly the probe length,
whatever, Vx do list different part numbers for the two.
