Cheers
I have a spare one but can’t seam to get it to work
Maby a dud
Seams the signal might need to be outputted from the clocks or mcu/ info centre if there is a output from there
Or the resistance is wrong between gauge and sensor
Any more info appreciated

you're probably better off just swapping the guts of it out for something like this rather than try and hunt down a long discontinued sensor!

Found a sensor on scandix for the 300 series that might work
Cheers for the help
