Most likely, the temperature gauge's connection is loose. It is usually on the thermostat. An inoperative temperature gauge will cause most check engine lights to come on.
A low coolant level could cause the temp gauge not to read correctly. A faulty temp gauge sending unit could also be the cause. The coolant leak, you would have to find the source of the leak to determine the cause.
check the connections behind the gauge they could pop loose
Could be your thermostat or your anti-freeze
The temp sending unit may be unplugged or faulty.
Bad fuse - I believe it is fuse # 17 - 15 amp for the fuel gauge on your 1994 Explorer bad sending unit - it's combined with your fuel pump inside the fuel tank bad wiring connection possibly the gauge itself
My 1995 Ford Explorer was running cooler on the temperature gauge and it turned out to be my thermostat
The gauge does not cause the heat; it only shows what it is.
temperature gauge not working can be caused by a bad temp sensor in engine, a bad gauge in dash, or a bad fuse
only 3 reasons a temp gauge wont work the temp sender is bad the gauge is bad or the wire from temp sender to gauge is broken
If the temperature gauge is not working, one thing it could be besides the gauge itself is a blown fuse. Another possibility is a loose or broken wire on the gauge.Ê
Check to make sure that the temperature sensor is good. A bad sensor is commonly the cause of the temperature gauge not working.
Could be temperature sensor Could be gauge
For a 2001 Ford Explorer : No , there is an engine temperature gauge Also , there is a " CHECK GAGE " light ( the light will come on if the engine coolant temperature is too high , the engine oil pressure is too low , or the fuel gauge indicates it is at or near empty )
There are several things that can cause your 2001 Ford F2 50 outside temperature gauge to quit working. The most common cause is a malfunctioning outside temperature sensor.
Either your oil pressure gauge is reading low , your engine temperature gauge is reading high , or your fuel gauge is reading low so your almost out of gas
There are several reasons this could be:There is no coolant in the engine to trigger the temperature gauge, this will cause complete engine failure very quicklyThe gauge, wiring or sender are badThe engine temperature control thermostat has jammed open or it has been removed.
The engine temp gauge is in the instrument cluster and the sending unit for the temperature gauge is in the intake manifold just to the left of the thermostat housing when you are looking from the front of the Explorer ( the larger sending unit to the right of the thermostat housing is for the EEC IV system)
A common cause is the thermostat being stuck in an open position.
no you need to replace temperature sinding unit
Is vehicle actually overheating? Could be a bad temperature sending unit or gauge Check temperature with a thermometer If thermostat does not open vehicle will overheat
A gauge glass may burst depending on the gauge itself. High temperature and pressure situations may cause the glass to burst.
On a 1997 Ford Explorer : CHECK ENGINE is just to the left of the " C " on the engine coolant temperature gauge ( Helpfull )
The 1999 Cadillac normal coolant temperature gauge reading should be 180 degrees. A 195 degrees thermostat could be used, causing the temperature gauge to read 195.
