New cts fitted, now time to find another excuse to go for a nice drive and make sure it doesn't go past half way. :slapme

No fear like a k-series owner when the temp gauge goes past half. :mouthshut

What did your digital monitoring tell you?

Longer term I could d*** about with the circuit and you can choose a temperature. Or choose your temperature and your hysteresis (fan hold-on lower temp after cooling begins...).

Trying not to be boastful, but electronics is my thing and a temperature controller would be straight forward I think. Linked to ignition for hold on after stop or not, your choice... I know how you like your customising...

You can get aftermarket temp controllers of course...
