    VR6 Intake air temp sensor.

    My VR has had an intake air temp sensor fault since I've had it and last week I got a replacement from GSF. After fitting, the rad fans come on a few seconds after start up and stay on while it's running

    Anyone know how or why this would bring the rad fans on?

    TIA

    Think you've got the black temp sensor and the inlet air temp sensor plugged in back to front.

    The rad fans have always seemed to have worked fine (had the car over a year), and they seem to be working ok now I have the faulty intake temp sensor back in. How would I check that everything is connected as it should be?

    The connector to the black temp sender is seperate to the yellow and blue wires, and runs down the front of the engine and into the fan wiring loom. The air intake temp sensor connector is bundled with the yellow and blue temp sensors.

    I've had a look but it looks like someones been here before and all the wires are together, anyone willing to have a look and see what colour wires go to what?

    Well, I've been having a poke about (as you do on dark wet nights) and swapped the 2 plugs over and let the engine run for a little while. It would seem I now have a multi speed fan! Having spoken to a friend whos had a couple of Corrados this is right, god only knows how it was working with them back to front.
    Thanks for the help.
