Temperature Gauge Install in Tiida

Postby seanviper » August 18th, 2011, 11:19 pm

I have an 05 Tiida Latio RoRo
And it did not come with a temperature meter/gauge, just two lights, Blue means cold and Red means hot/overheating/or whatever.
I do not like that

Does any one have any experience connecting a separate temperature gauge like i plan to do?

or im in this by myself?

Any help would be appreciated

I found the Temperature sending module in the engine block already, but i cannot replace this with the module the gauge came with, because then the red and yellow lights would stop working in the dash, and the fan would stay on constantly at a high speed as soon as the car starts. the module the car came with controls when the fans come on and off and at what speed.

so what should i do?

Be gentle, and please comment only if you plan on being helpful.

Wanna know if i can do it myself, before i have to decide to go to a professional "installer"

I just checked an Tida front half by a foreign used dealer, the Top rad hose ID is 1.50" or 38mm

no need to interfere with your original temperature system, theres an adaptor that u can use, u can get it to buy at tuner imports or most other performance shops on tuner, it goes anywhere between ur radiator hose and has the threading ontop to screw in your guage sensor, hope u get tru padna

it's not like the regular temperature gauge in a normal car is any better. those things only work for a narrow band of temperatures anyway, which is similar to a red or blue light in my opinion.

but co sign for the water hose adapter, that will give you a connection for water temps at least.

^^No need to install a temp guage in these cars.....if the engine starts to o/heat the red light will come on. If it continues to get hotter than the wired temp parameters, the computer shuts the engine down. Its impossible to o/heat these engines as the block is 100% aluminium & can get warped very easily.

but no temperature light shows during normal operation - so how do you expect to see it?

A blue one shows when cold only, for example.

Most Taxis in San Juan have them. It looks like a regular gauge and pod. Nothing too fancy. Some are analog and some are digital.

easy easy, buy a 38mm adapter. Cut top radiator hose and insert with two hose clamps.

run 2 wires to the adapter, one is ground and the other is the signal from the sensor to the inside of the car.

inside the car now u have 2 wires to connect. one being a ground and the other a power. Some gauges have a light that you could wire up if u want it illuminated.

have jumpers selling to take current from the fuse-box by attatching it to a fuse. Or u could go to ur cig/deck wiring for that.

I bought the temp gauge to install but end up using one of those obd2 readers.
I use a cheap tab on the dash and read a lot of different info from the ecu on addition to the temp.


The car came with a single aluminum core radiator original, but I put in a 2 core soon after. Temp gauge only tell u if it hot, it dies nothing to stop it getting hot

The 2 core does not kerp it too cool cause the fan cycles like normal.

Once you have a thermostatically controlled water system all a bigger rad does is affect how often your fan works. You car will still operate at the factory spec temperature that the thermostat and fan sensor is calibrated at.
