440 temp light problem, instrument panel removal

Hi Bill Just a final note, on closer inspection of the small PCB that I replaced. I noticed a dry joint (a soldered joint which had become unsoldered or was not soldered properly in the first place) on one of the surface mounted componants.

440 temp light problem, instrument panel removal

I have solved my problem of a high temp guage and a perminant temp light. The solution is to replace the PCB behind the temp gauge. To do this I removed the instrument panel and dismantled it, replaced a blown PCB with one from a scrap yard, put it all back together and hey presto, an easy task (20 ...

440 temp light problem

Hi Bill

I made the journey ok, got to do it today again, good test I suppose. I flushed the system out well in many directions so any debris must have moved. It is the gauge and light only which is causing the problem.

Thanks

440 temp light problem

Hi Bill

I have not flushed the system. Is there a proper process to follow or is it simply empty from the lowest point and refill?

440 temp light/gauge problem

Hi there

I replaced the temp transmitter on the engine block with a new one (CI-XTT90-INTR52250). This has not sorted the problems out. The fan appears to be behaving as expected/normal, it switches on for while to cool everything down then switches off.

temp light, 1994 440SE

Hi can anyone help please. My temp light is staying on and the temp guage is at the top always now. I have removed the thermostat, the rad fan comes on ok so assume heat switch is ok, I can see water flowing through top up bottle so assume water is circulating. Any help out there will be appreciated
