Hi all, .. engine management indicator on dash telling me the coolant temp sensor is faulty,...got a pattern one for £12 cos Suzi main dealer quoted £55,....pattern one looks the same, but sends the dash gauge haywire, what do you suggest, try another pattern supplier or go OE ?

Have you checked the wiring? do the pins look clean? if that all checks out OK then I'd go for an OE sensor - if its not right it will throw the fuelling out but maybe not enough to trip a code.

Some Suzukis and a bunch of motorcycles.

Ran the engine from cold on a Bosch diagnostic, and when the engine reached operating temp. the readout fell off to flatline and replace sensor showed. Either the replacement pattern sensor is the wrong one, or its dud. Put the original back in and original readout was repeated. £55 or Ebay?

Does the replacement sensor show the correct temperature?
