Coolant sensor I have a 1996 orvis edition straight 6 jeep. The air or heat does not work, blows out hot in summer and cold in winter. Now the display screen in the middle had an orange bar running acroos the front and "coolant sensor bad" keeps coming up. Does one have anything to do with the other and could it be a coolant level sensor or a coolant temperature sensor, and it is expensive and or easy to replace either? Reading through some of these, my truck also has many of the same issues as

I HAVE A 2003 SATURN ION. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. I HAD THE CAR HOOKED UP TO AN ANALYZER AND IT COMES UP WITH A MAP SENSOR CODE. I REPLACED THE MAP SENSOR AND THE PROBLEM DID NOT GO AWAY. THE CAR, AFTER DRIVEN FOR ABOUT 15 MILES ON THE X-WAY, IDLES AT 1800 RPMS UNTIL I TURN THE CAR OFF. WHEN I START THE CAR, WITHIN A FEW SECONDS, IT IDLES FINE. I TOOK IT TO A GARAGE AND WITH THEIR ANALYZER THEY COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG OTHER THAN IT LOOKED LIKE THE COOLANT TEMP SENSOR WAS READING

2008 Ford Expedition Change Oil Message - After resetting it comes back. Changed oil. Is this sensor a quality sensor or timed? Could this be a faulty sensor? The outside temp sensor is also **** @ 75. Any relation to each other?


There is a sensor for both of them. I am not quite sure if they are related, on the same fuse. You can check the fuse box and see though. Sometimes the sending unit will get stuck or become defective and it will keep the light on, even if it is reset ... 2008 Ford Expedition

The door does not have a hydraulic button to indicate when closed, has to be a electric sensor. Anyone know where to find it. All fuses are good. Warning light on dash is not on. Also causes interior lights to stay on while driving. This problem comes and goes while driving.

I just had the sensor replaced, changed to a heavier oil, replaced the thermostat, and flushed the coolant picked up my car and the oil light comes on after the car warms up when I slow down, Could I have gotten a bad sensor or does this sound like an oil pump? I don't want to keep fixing stuff by their guessing.


Whose guessing. Have a repair shop check your oil pressure with a Mechanical Oil Pressure Gauge, and that will tell you what to do. If its OK, the oil switch is bad, if the oil pressure is low, the eng may be sluged up, or oil pump or worse problems. ... 1986 Lincoln Town Car

My heater in the Mercedes c240 1999 car is not working well. One side of the heater (left hand side is ok) but the right hand side keeps on blowing out hot air even when it is on the cold setting. Any ideas? Also, the engine fan (cooling fan) keeps coming on and it seems to be draining the battery. When I pull out the fuse to this cooling fan, the coolant sensor light stays on and car seems to overheat somewhat. Could this have anythiing to do with the heater blowing hot air? Thanks!

I have a 2004 VW T4 transporter, and the brake fluid warning light & audible alarm come on intermittently whilst driving. The alarm tends to sound when turning right, and goes off if I turn the wheel the other way. It's been to the garage repeatedly, and they have replaced the float sensor, and checked the brake system - they say that they can't find a problem; but it still keeps happening! What could be the cause of this problem? The light is one thing, but the alarm is driving us all mad


This is a thinker. The only reason i can think of for this is the alarm itself or at least the way it was installed. Here is the thing. If the alarm was built into the vehicle by the factory most likely the problem is a faulty alarm circuit in the ... Volkswagen Microbus

BMW (1996) e36 318i ABS fault. The ABS fault light stays on which means that the ABS system is deactivated. The diagnostic check when the car was serviced was that the front left brake sensor was faulty and so we had this replaced however when the fault is reset on the onboard computer it comes back on after driving a short distance. The workshop (not BMW) says the ECU is at fault. Could this problem not be one of the 2 ABS relays in the fuse box?

FORD ESCAPE EMISSION CONTROL WARNING LIGHT PROBLEM: I have a Ford Escape XLT, 6 cylinder, 2002 model, and the above warning light comes on, on the dash. The problem is, that it only comes on after the car has been started, but once this light is on, it says on for a long period of time. I have been advised by a mechanic that it could be the Oxygen Sensors, so I have had these two replaced, but this light still comes on.

Check engine light keeps coming on my 2002 Honda civic si. After MANY times at the same Machanic he keeps throwing codes to the car resets the light. After 30 miles or more it comes back on. Things he has trown at me to for him to fix: cam shaft sensors, vtec, and some other sensors. Just months before I had to change the timing chain also and is correctly in? Had to change it because there was an oil leak. This is information in what I've done and the check engine light is still on.


If its throwing a code for cam sensor but new sensor does not fix it given the fact of recently replacing the timing chain id say it sounds like the timing was not set correctly which is causing the cam sensor to receive abnormal readings throwing th ... Cars & Trucks
