    Just had my car back from garage after having the thermostat replaced. The needle now seems to sit at 90 but climate control 49 still seems to be between 90 and 100. Fans dont seem to cut in aswell. Should I be worried or do i ignore the climate control reading?

    I think the reading for the CC come from the CTS? Have you replaced that? It's only a 2 min job and they're nice and cheap.

    Changed the temp sender last week.

    Does your temp gauge sit at 90?

    The thermostat opens and closes to regulate the temp of the coolant. They don't do this instantly, I can't say for sure this is the case and why the temp gauge doesn't oscillate a little to reflect this.

    Is the 90-100 happening at regular intervals or does it have something to do with driving conditions. Pulling up at lights and losing airflow in the rad, I would expect the water temp to rise then fall again when you set off.

    Short answer, I think this is normal.
