as in the title, i think mine maybe faulty, will it cause any problems running it disconnected (the 2 wire sensor), i know it brings on the EML, but any other potential problems
i expect so, its only for a few days till i get a new 1, i can run with it connected, in fact i think when cold the car wont start without it, but the car at the moment runs better with it disconnectedif its not getting a feed the ecu will just dump in fuel to try and warm it up wont it
water temp is one of the very few defo things an ECU needs to function properly i believe
The ecu will just set a given temp and fuel to that, so yeh, it might run rich for a while.
i'll probably reconnect it until the new one comes then, it will drive, its just a pig to drive in trafficits defo duff then stu ,it wont run properly warm as its not getting any info on as and when to advance the map to alter the fueling
it may not start with it disconnected as it needs a connection but as it runs with it it may drop in to some form of limp mode when it sees theres an issue
