    Heaters/blowers

    i have a problem with my heaters.....sometimes they work fine but other times they are only just warm not hot like they should be.

    Dodgy matrix or what do ya reckon it could be?

    Also could it be my thermostat as my temperature dial is on 0 while driving but goes up when stationary? Is the thermostat linked to the heater?

    2 posts on the same thing and if you'd given all the info it could have been answered better

    I asked about the temp guage in your other post as this is directly related to the heaters in the car so yes the thermostat is probably your problem

    i have the 1.6 twinport engine code z16xep.
    just found out that the thermostat has a temperature sensor built into it......now i had the eml light show up saying a faulty temperature sensor (0115) and i changed this (not the one in the thermostat) and the eml light kept coming on? so im now know its the sensor in the thermostat.

    Can i just change the sensor in this or will i have to buy a whole new thermostat and will changing this solve my problem?
