Where is coolant temp sensor located on a hhr?

Coolant temperature sensors are usually located on the radiator.

Usually ambient sensors are located in front of the radiator.

Your 1989 Pontiac Bonneville is overheating you smell and see antifreeze but its a major overrating maybe a little bit over the half mark only happens when the car is not moving?

Make sure the radiator fan is turning on when the engine warms up. When it's moving, air is blown across the radiator, but when it's NOT moving, there isn't any air moving to cool the radiator so you need a fan to be working. It SHOULD work from a temperature sensor.

Why does my car surge and won't start replaced thermostat and radiator?

When the thermostat and radiator were replaced, coolant could have dripped into an electrical connector or a sensor could be disconnected or damaged. Check the temperature sensor and crankshaft sensors first.

How much does it cost to replace sensors on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

depends on the sensor .your question has to have more detail to it .Due to there is all kinds of sensors such as, temp sensor,knock sensor,o2 sensor,iac sensor,map sensor,idle air control sensor,mass air flow sensor,shift control sensors,transmission sensors,coolant sensors,hell there is even brake sensors and rear end sensors,some even have body sensors.

What does the speed sensor do in a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan?

The transmission speed sensors tell the trans computer how fast the inside parts of the trans are turning. The wheel speed sensors tell the ABS computer how fast the wheels are turning.

Which sensor is the 02 heater sensor?

Most oxygen sensors are heated oxygen sensors.

Can sensors be used in trains?

It depends what kind of sensor you mean. There are lots of sensors in trains already... for such things as heat/smoke detectors, doors (which stop the train moving unless the doors are closed, fuel, signal sensors..... etc

Where is the temperature sensors on an 1987 Nissan Stanza?

The temperature sensor on a 1987 Nissan Stanza is located on the rear of the radiator. It is about one-third of the way down from the top.

What is the difference between sensors and smart sensors?

sensor is just an indicator ,..... but smart sensor is a indicator along with controller ( which decides " what to do" )

Can you show me a picture of where the intake temperature sensor is located on an 01 kia sportage?

follow the top radiator hose away from radiator to engine,you will see the hose does not go directly to engine but goes to a aluminum box with 2 sensors connected to it. the one wired sensor is a temperature sensor and the 2 wired sensor is the other temperature sensor. one gives temp to dash panel,while the other sends signal to computer .

Where is an overdrive sensor and how to change it on a 1996 plymouth breeze?

There isn't an overdrive sensor. There are pressure switches, a temp sensor, solenoids, and speed sensors.There isn't an overdrive sensor. There are pressure switches, a temp sensor, solenoids, and speed sensors.

What is a position sensor?

A device that allows position measurement is a position sensor. There are absolute position sensors and displacement sensors that are relative ones.

Do you have to have a catalytic converter on a 1994 geo prizm?

Yes. There are also two oxygen sensors referred to as upstream (O2) and downstream (sub O2) sensors. The O2 sensor is mounted on the exhaust manifold (there is a large silver heat shield in between the engine and radiator). The SubO2 sensor is located underneath the vehicle in from of the catalytic converter.

Is fiber optics and Fiber optic sensors are same?

No, A fiber optic sensor is a sensor that uses optical fiber either as the sensing element ("intrinsic sensors"), or as a means of relaying signals from a remote sensor to the electronics that process the signals ("extrinsic sensors").

Will the camshaft sensor stop the car from starting?

Yes. Cam sensor will determine the rotation of the camshaft, and if it does not sense it 'turning' the sensor will not allow the engine to start (it protects damaging the engine). Faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensors will stall engine and prevent restart until replaced.

What is a dead zone in sensors?

A dead zone in a sensor is the point where a sensor will not work. Ultrasonc sensors and specific optical sensors for example have measurement or detection ranges quoted as 30mm-300mm sensing. This means the sensor will not operate from 1-29mm or over 300mm.

Where is the radiator sensor located on a 2002 Chrysler Town and Country 3.3?

The coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the engine, behind where the upper radiator hose attaches. That is the main sensor the computer uses to run the radiator fans.

Where is the sensor for the radiator fan located on a 1999 Chrysler Concorde?

The engine temperature sensor is located next to where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine. The computer uses that sensor to decide when to actuate the radiator fan relays and turn the fans on.The engine temperature sensor is located next to where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine.
