Bentley is in error in that they label both this DCC (digital climate
control) WTS (water temperature sensor) and the ECU WTS as being G62. Makes
trouble shooting very confusing! They may well be identical sensors, not
enough T/R info on the ECU WTS to be able to tell for sure. But the two
circuits have nothing in common.
The DCC WTS' only purpose is to shut off the hot water flow to the heater
core when not needed, so it could be located anywhere, and was not used on
some earlier models, hot water being on all the time.
Hope this helps, Improvise!
