temperature

hi all,well i finally got around to fitting a temp gauge to my daughters seicento sporting today. all seems to be working well but the fan switch doesnt kick in untill the temp is at 100 !(thats with the car ticking over on the drive). seems a bit high to me? would a new fan switch be needed?

Re: temperature

Possibly, which Sei Sporting do you have?

However, its ony a gauge you've bought, not an instrument so I would use it as a gauge.

Cheers

Re: temperature

On a 99 you can change the switch in the radiator, but as long as the fan comes on and goes off before the car overheats, then I'd be happy.

Cheers
