    Default Temperature

    Hi. My temperature gauge never seems to rise. I took the car to the main dealer and they said it was reading correctly but it was always very low, now it is not moving at all? I have owned the car since 2002 and this has been a problem only in the last year.

    sounds like a temp switch or the thermostate is on its way out

    If your heater is still working ok I.E getting hot then i suspect a faulty temp sender if the heater takes a long long time to get luke warm then it will point to the thermostat !!!!

    Hi. Thanks for your advice. To be honest I dont think the heater is as efficient as it was when I first had it. I did tell the dealer that I thought it was the thermostat but they said that the computer said it was fine. Maybe I need to take it to another dealer, the problem is that were I live there are not many about.

    My gauge does not even twitch anymore yet the heater is ok. The garage said the guage was measuring the same as the sender when they had it in to check some time back (when the guage was just intermittant) - So I wonder if it is the gauge itself which I suppose could be expensive to replace.
