Default Temperature Sensor.



Bare with me on this, I have now got a FBH fitted to my tourer courtesy of GRS6680 many thanks.
I am aware I can test it by pins three and six, but when the temperature gets below 5 degrees how does it know when to turn on.

By the way I still need a remote can you do Devilish.

Cheers.

Rev.

From memory, so if someone's memory is more accurate?

There is a signal from the ECU, which indicates the engine is running. That passes through a thermal switch in the front bumper area which closes at <5C, that signal then passes to the FBH.

Net result is - FBH only comes on when engine is running and temperature is less than 5C. It comes on automatically in those circumstances.

Fix a poor handbrake; DIY ABS diagnostic unit; Loan of the spanner needed to change the CDT belts; free OBD diagnostics +MAF; Correct Bosch MAF cheap; DVB-T install in an ex-hi-line system; DD install with a HK amp; FBH servicing.

I've taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

Harry, many thanks for the answer, that is all I wanted.
So the heater will not come on automatically without the engine running.

Cheers.
