I thought about doing that Crowz, but I'm worried by the level of interaction between the IKE and the DME/DDE and thought it might put the engine into fail-safe or something stupid!

I guess screwing with the sensor might do the same thing but the wiring diagram clearly shows independent sensors for the DME/DDE and IKE functions. But wiring is one thing, data buses are another!

Still trying to track down my spare sensor so I can test my new 110c setting. I guess a chunk of cardboard down the grill might do it too..
This may be the easiest way to test it.

So the second sensor wired to the IKE drives the gauge but the warning comes from the DME/DDE via CAN bus... so to test this we need to futz with the engine temp sensor and not the gauge temp sensor, to convince the DME/DDE that the engine is overheating... sounds a bit dodgy..

Well to prove our alarm settings in the LCM are indeed working, we need to verify the temp at 110C in your case and see if it alerts.

Might try the suggested methods combined - drop the alarm temp setting to 100c then go for a drive with the radiator blocked by cardboard - 100c shouldn't stress my diesel cooling system overly and at least we'll then know!

Although I 'spose that not really any different than dong what Crowz suggests - setting the alarm at 85c.

I'm back at work now, after our summer break, so have less daylight hours to play with this.. But at least its warm here!

P.S. - I'm NOT actually going to stick cardboard in front of the radiator - there's too many other things up there that need air flow, like the intercooler, oil cooler etc.

From what I get out of reading that factory info and poking around is that the gauge side of the sensor doesn't get used for anything. I did a ton of futzing on the DME side with no dodgyness happening other than setting a code for it being shorted.

Good to know - thanks for blazing the trail.

Right, I didn't think about the oil cooler and intercooler...
