Audi A6 Oil Temp Gauge Not Working


Does anyone know where the thermostat is located, it is certainly not visible from the top of the engine so I assume it is somewhere under it. I already did the VAG test to make sure the gauge is responding and it passed. Some XenForo functionality crafted by Audentio Design. If its an analog clock, it will use the old single wire analog sensor on the front of the block. http://sohohosting.net/audi-a6/audi-a6-fuel-gauge-not-working.html

thanks again, in advance, if anyone can provide a pointer to how the hell my car is wired up!! adamj318 Posts: 5 Registered: 05/23/07 Re: oil temp sensor Posted: Dec 12, 2007 10:36 PM in response to: FKH161 Reply I'll trace those wires to see if I can It's very frustrating as I like to use the oil temp gauge rather than the coolant gauge to determine the warming of the engine... The diagnosis report suggested a new instrument cluster for starters at £1,000+ and then on-going repairs if this didn't work!

Today i drove it and i shut it off an then waited an started it back u then the temp gage was alittle up but no oil gage. It could be something as simple as a faulty coolant thermostat, causing the guage to always display 60c because the oil is infact always below 60c. Any help is appreciated Thanks - adamj318 FKH161 Posts: 7,658 Registered: 12/29/05 Re: oil temp sensor Posted: Dec 8, 2007 5:51 PM in response to: adamj318 Reply OFFENDERS WILL BE MODERATED OR EVEN BANNED.
