Re: Avoid or not?

Fit a low coolant alarm and you have a good chance of protecting the cylinder head which is expensive.

Re: Haydn Coolant Alarm False Alert

Re: Haydn Coolant Alarm False Alert

If that doesn’t work then look at electrics as suggested above.

Re: Coolant alarm

You say you topped up with water and a bit came out......you must not fill the tank to the top. If you can’t see the level through the side of tank, get a dry stick and put it vertically into the tank (when cold) you should get only 2 centimetres of wet stick when you remove it....any more and you m...

Re: Coolant alarm

Spot on Bob, the temp alarms default top temp is 100c , as you say you can exceed that after a run and stopped. Read the alarm instructions and set the trigger point to 105c.

Re: Coolant alarm

In the past 10 years we have not had a low coolant alarm returned broken, as far as I know we have 100% reliability. The only known problem is fresh red 5 year coolant which seems to coat the screw for a couple of weeks after a coolant change. It seems a lifetime ago when along with help from member...

Re: Coolant alarm

Crimp connectors or best of all solder,

Re: Coolant alarm

Hi, the alarm should only beep when you turn the ignition on and again when you turn key to start, the only other time you should hear it is when the coolant is low. New Red antifreeze can cause problems but not what’s happening to you. Weak coolant, same as above. Are you sure it’s the coolant alar...

Re: Haydn Engine Temp TM2 not reading temperature?

Not a good idea to cut the sensor wire ! It’s a shielded wire and this should be maintained after rejoining .

Re: low coolant

Hi, are you sure it’s a Haydn alarm ? Assuming it is and the bit you pulled away is a small black cylinder about 1 inch diameter and 1.5 inch long then it is a very old one...all I can suggest is you strip the alarm out and send it to us for repair FOC....if it’s irreparable we can do a deal on a ne...
