RE: 90 Q temperature warning
If the A/C control unit gets the "engine overheat" signal it will shut
off A/C. I'm not sure which sensor controls the coolant warning lamp on
the 90Q, but I think this is the multi-function sensor (the fat one with
3 or 4 wires). It is possible that the wire is shorted, but these
sensors go bad often :-(
87 Audi 5000CS turbo (mine)
88 Renault Medallion wagon (mom's)
91 mountain bike (just in case both cars broke at the same time :-)
