Temp guage not working, fan always on.
So I just finished yesterday doing my head gasket and after about a 3 months of off and on maintenance, the baby fired up on the first try!! Ha so that was the highlight of my weekend.
Anyway along the way of getting the heads milled and cleaned, the machine shop broke the temp sensor on the driver side head (I probably should have removed it anyway)
So as part of putting everything together I bought a new one, and for some reason the connector didnt plug in so I took a look at the pins and noticed it should have fit because it had two pins just like the old one that broke and was even the same shape but didnt plug in. So I cut the connection and took it to Oreilys and bought one that if fit into, thinking it would work just fine.
Once installed and once I ran the car, first thing I noticed the fan came on as soon as it fired up, not only that the temp guage didnt work at all!!
I let the car run for a few minutes and same thing, no movement of the gauge, so I was wondering where I could start to trouble shoot the issue?
This was never a problem before the head gasket replacement and the gauge worked just fine, I checked the fuses and everything looked fine, any help would be appreciated!!
