Is it sender for gauge is it the same for all panda with temp gauge Are you sure that it is that sender how to check it...conect sender and earth because there is only one pin.... Have you got more dates (for another senderssensors)
Hi AcaMost Easterly pandas Thanks...yes I know about two type of senders...Ill check it in panda and in Punto 16V engine (Ive got access) if its same.... Link doesnt work now but I have to check at home

Link doesnt work now but I have to check at home Hi Jangcy just few words moore....Sender for ECU have two pins (earth in and out with resistance of NTC) Sender for gauge has only one pin earth is on body and pin is out
Oh yes...most continental pandas have just Hi-temp warning light ...most english pandas have temp gauge BTW....temp sender for ECU in Bosch systems has got different resistance than sender for MagnettiWeber injection systems....(Ive check it before...)

No point - thats why we all have thermostatically-operated cooling fans now. (In really old cars with a true fan belt the fan ran all the time leading to the chance of overcooling in winter). However related I note there doesnt appear to be any pre-heating on the air intake My previous cars have had a winter intake that sourced warmer air from around the manifold again controlled by a thermostat. So far as I can see the panda only ever breathes ambient air.
