Yes!!!! Another one!
Walter. I don't know what the cause is, but I've had two Quantums and
both of them had that durn blinking light to warn me my coolant system
was about to errupt. I think they have a mind of their own. I'm
assuming you replaced the sensor that's on top of the coolant reservoir
jug. After the wreck in my GL5, Carey replaced my jug with one off
of a Rabbit that didn't have a sensor in it, so my light blinked all the
time. We simply took the plug out and put a short wire from one terminal
to the other. It worked. Warning - this may not be the best practice.
It will however turn off your led. I wonder if you couldn't mount the
sensor at a lower point on the jug, where it would make contact with the
coolant. It's be a lot of work.
Welcome as an honorary member to the list. It's good to have yet another
Quantum owner aboard. Sorry all y'all REAL Audi owners. Thanks for
