    Howdy folks, my (A3 8l 1998)temperature gauge seems to have stopped working. I'm still getting warm air in the cabin but not exactly that hot that I need to turn the temp setting down. Currently set it at 29 degrees and it's warm not unbearably hot. It also takes a while to get warm. The temp gauge isn't going up at all.
    What do the experts think?
    Thermostat? Or Temp Sender Unit? Possibly both?
    Any help opinions, Thanks.

    I would think before you remove the thermostat, first try switching on the AC, if fans come up then I don't think its the problem, I think u need to check the radiator switch.
    However, the stat is located under the battery.
