Temp sender unit
Hi all, just replaced the temp sender unit in my Isuzu County, but the gauge now shows red hot at normal operating temperature.
Does anyone know of the fix for this? Can I just put a resistor in the cct to correct it?
The unit was supplied for a 4bd1 engine, but I'm thinking the LR cct is different to Isuzu's.

I had exactly the same problem. I used a resistor which I think was 18 ohms to correct the reading. I'll check later on and get back to you.

If someone has a landrover part to avoid these shennanigans I'd probably buy it.

FWD at Fairfield or Zenith Engineering at Milton would probably have the correct part.

I think the part number sticky thread in this section has the correct LR part number. I did the same thing, and bought the V8 version from the same era that showed overtemp. Bought the other one, $18 or so and sorted.

My temp guage started reading too high, so I replaced both the guage and sender with VDO items.

I checked today, it is 18 ohms I used to correct the reading.
If I could fit a VDO, then I would. Sadly the rangie clusters aren't easy to modify.
