    Hi guys

    I'm having a bit of a problem with my audi 80 B4 tdi with what I believe is a 1Z engine I bought the car as an MOT failure and have been slowly working on it.

    My problem is that the temperature gauge doesn't work and from what I can tell the fans don't kick in( I left the engine running for nearly an hour and pipes all got hot but temperature guage did not move and fans didn't kick in)

    I have found a lead and plug that appears to have become detached it is in the area around the offside headlight and it is a two pin female plug which is round in shape and has a pink/purple and black colour to it.

    Is this the reason that the guage and fans do not work and if so where should it go because I can'tseem to find anywhere for it!

    Many thanks in advance

    The temperatue sender should be mounted on the top left hand side of the block where the coolant pipe runs to the top of the radiator. This should give the signal to the temperature gauge in the dash but also feeds into the injection control computer. On my petrol 80 there is also a plug on the offside lower side of the radiator which i believe is the switch to bring on the cooling fan. i have photos if you need them and i'll try to get what i can from elsawin

    Hi
    Sorry I tokk so long to reply I'm starting basic training with the army in a week so have been running around like a headless chicken!
    Its a 1993 and the engine code is 1Z.
    Photos would be apreciated please! I wouldn't have thought it would be so hard to find as the lead is only so long!
    Thank you

    the purple plug you`ve found is a plug for the fog lights!! My mate has a 1z tdi 93 80 and uprated to the s bumper, the pink/purple plug goes straight into the fog lights on the s2 bumper. Audi must jut use the same lighting loom for all models (cheapskates!!)

    Im not sure how t sort your temp gauge/fan issue, but at least that will save you fiddling with that wire!! (have you checked the thermostat?)
