Exclamation HELP! In need of Electronic Temperature Gauge

Hello, does anyone know of a 1/2 inch 14 NPT electronic temperature gauge replacement kit that works?

Bought a new coolant temperature sender, and i bought a long cable to replace the wire that doesnt work... something must have shorted out my temperature board.

this has happened on the oil pressure one, i bought a bosch. has been working fine.

Now, im looking for water coolant temperature kit.

anyone know? for a 1996 Monaco Windsor?

Hello MonacoWind 96,
Something does not sound right here. You are trying to "shotgun" parts without proper analysis.

The temperature sensor is merely a resistor that changes value as the temperature goes up or down. This can be checked using a simple voltmeter on the ohms scale. You should see a change in resistance as the temperature of the coolant goes up. Make sure the sensor works first by checking it. Then connect the long cable and recheck the resistance. The resistance of the sensor and when connected should be the same. If not, you have a bad cable. Basically, the temp gauge works like the ohm meter - measures resistance.


Best Regards
Dutch Master

Been there, done that, got a T-Shirt that didnt fit.

I ran a new cable from the sensor, to the panel... same problem. replaced the sensor, same problem.

i have ran out of options. i resolved my oil pressure sensor by doing the same thing.
