    Coolant Temperature Guage Not Working - Help and Advice Please?!

    Hey!

    My guage has stopped working on my dash - the needle just stays at the far left. It's been on the blink for a few weeks but does not move at all now. I run a VI Monitor so I can watch the temps on there and it's running fine (90degrees).

    Does anyone know what the issue may be?

    Broken guage? Sensor? etc

    Many thanks in advance

    Coolant temperature sensor I expect, they fail 'quite' often and are only about 20 I think.
