    Temperature Sensor

    Well my MFD and Tempsoner has worked great since I've had it but within the last 2-3 days it seems to off added an extra digit :\

    Basically it reads as 65.3 and it seems to jump all over the place and varies from 0-70 some times it works some times it dosnt and today it didnt read at all it was like this: _ _ . _

    Would this just be in need of a new sensor and assume its easy to replace??

    Cheers in advance

    If new sensor Craig pretty easy.
    On front bumper (on the back of cause) right smack bang in the middle at the bottom.
    Just plug and play iirc
    If it needs a new sensor who knows, but don't think they cost much.

    Craig knows where the sensor is Iain, it popped out enough times when we changed to his angel eyes, then again when we tried putting the bumper back on after the HIDs were fitted.

    I said, maybe it has popped out and is dangling by somewhere hot, whether than might affect its reading that drastically or not.
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    There's no where hot that it can dangle, i'd say it's faulty or could have a dirty connection

    dunno how you could have missed it

    I've got exactly the same problem, just started this week suddenly. Mine permanently reads 69.5 degrees C!!!! Every now and again will flash up --.- and then instantly return to 69.5!! Does this DEFINITELY mean its the sensor and not something else between the sensor and MFD? How can i be sure before i order a new one?
