Other than dash not showing temp of engine does the coolant sensor have any other function when not working properly. After belt snaped wires going to sensor broke. I replaced belt now I have no engine temp reading electric fans are on ALL the time and a/c stopped working
i HAVE NO POWER STEERING AND IS VERY HARD TO DRIVE, HOW DO i FIX AND WHATR WOULD THE COST BE $$
Loved it until everything went wrong at once. A/C, heat, seat heater-drivers, moon roof baffles, radiator and brakes all died within 6 months of one another.
