Right temp sender reading -40 on live data, changed sensor 3 times now and dicided it must be somthing else so have cheacked the wiring, voltages etc etc and yes well...

from one side of the plug i get a voltage reading of about 4.75 volts (this is a cheap well battered multi meter so will not be exact) and the other side i get a voltage reading of 9.28.

so look up manual and take reading from ECU pin (input) with it disconected from the sensor i get a 4.75 volt reading with it conected 9.2 volts. now according to the manual voltage should drop as engine warms up bur engine warm and i get this.

I am missing somthing or wiring/ECU fault?

pre 99 gems 4.0

Thanks

You are looking at the correct one aren't you? There's two temperature sensors on a GEMS, one to drive the temp gauge (green coloured one at the centre front of the inlet manifold just above the top hose outlet) and a second one to drive the petrol ECU which is a brown one just to the left and slightly behind it.

Certainly isn't going to help.....

You need to find out why it burnt. It may have been overloaded by a short to ground in the wiring or it could have been a component failure in the ECU itself. I'd be very cautious of simply replacing the burnt track with a piece of wire without knowing what caused it to burn out in the first place.

Don't forget that if you replace your ECU you will have to sync it to your BeCM
