    I had a hot start fault engine temperature sensor fault,New sensor had been fitted (by previous owner)
    Found that the wiring under the rubber boot had corroded and fell off the wiring pins,replaced the wiring and now no hot starting problem
    Also found wiring to the throttle body switch had corroded,carried wiring repair and now excellent idle hot and cold

    Carried checks on my Corrado 2.0 16 v .found the wiring under the rubber cover that goes to the temperature switch had fell off,also found the wiring to the throttle body ( 2 out of the 3 wires was snapped) repair the wiring and now starts,runs spot on.

    Getting frustrated with this car. Replaced the coolant temp sensor, still no luck getting it started. The battery also seems to be draining super fast.
    I assume I should be poking around with a multimeter, but where? And also, how do I check the wires for places such as the temperature sensor clip? I'm still somewhat noobie when it comes to electrical.

    Put a meter between the battery clamp and battery terminal and read the current. Should be around 0.2A with everything switched off.
    If its higher, pull fuses until it goes down. This will isolate your drain circuit. Then check items on that circuit.

    How do you mean? I tried red on terminal, black on clamp, and vise versa, but could only get a reading of 0.
    Also, on vortex, I was directed to check out the ground on the cylinder head.Attachment 91060
    I believe this is the correct ground I'm looking for. The end is all frayed and looks to be barely hanging on.
    When I attempted to read the resistance, I put red on the exposed wire and black on the head. If this is correct, it is indicating that the ground is bad. corrado2.jpg
    Is this correct? Am I measuring this correctly? And how would I repair this ground? Can I just solder on a new connection to the post?

    The first image, OL is open link. That means it has no reading and the circuit is open, therefore the cable is completely broken down. Check the earth necxt to the battery too. It goes to a stud right next to the battery tray just to the side. Not meaning to insult you, but when checking current, make sure the meter is set to Amps

    If you remove the wiring block from sensors and hold the wiring block and gently pull on the wiring to check the wiring is secure inside the wiring block,Have you a scanner to carry checks l had this on my Corrado 2.0 he previous owner had fitted lots of sensors because of a running fault.
    You can pull the rubber boot back and check the wiring
    You can also put a jump lead from earth side of the battery to a good earth on the engine this will earth the battery to engine
