So i finally got my car 99% done and running. All has been going well but I ran into my first issue. my wiring on my thermostat housing harness was looking pretty ratty soo i decided to cut it back some and solder/ wire in new wiring to freshen it up . the car was running fine . Than I noticed my temp gauge was not working at all, So i figured i had crossed one of the wires . soo i got rid of my spades and I wired in a new chunk of the harness peice that i got from a local junkyard. Here is my problem, The car will not run with the Coolant Temp Sensor plugged in on the thermostat housing . I can keep the Temp gauge wire plugged in, " single spade on the right of thermo sensor" and ill get a temp reading on my dash, but the temp sensor itself can not be plugged in. The car will just sit there and crank and crank and crank. The coolant temp sensor and the gauge sensor consists of 3 wires... a green w/black, yellow w/green, and yellow w/green . 1 of the yellow w/green goes with the green w/black to the temp sensor and the other yellow w/green goes to the gauge read out for the cluster.
I started tested my harness to see if i was having a short some where since the coolant temp sensor works off resistance... and the wiring seems fine " even though the mitsu manuels dont give u too in depth on how to check it"
does anyone have ANY idea why my car is acting like this and why it wont run with the coolant temp sensor plugged in. Also does it matter which yellow w/green wire goes to my gauge read out sensor compared to the yellow w/ green that goes to the plug for the coolant temp sensor ...
- Thanks -
