Was there an engine temperature gauge anywhere to be seen? Going without it would be a big step back (to the 1950's), IMHO.

Nope, no temp gauge, just an indicator light for H or C coolant temperature.
I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to add a gauge to monitor coolant temps if one really wanted it. I'd probably add one.:wigglesmiley:

@ mobiusrain: Excellent wright up! Thanks!

No triditional temp gauge?

I just purchasws a new Si sedan last night and noticed that there is no triditional temp gauge in it. All I see is a gas gauge. I was looking though the manual and all it really states is a high temp warning light. Is there a hidden gauge some where I can see by pushing a button?

No, there is no traditional temp gauge. Don`t know why they would remove it.

I can agree with that. its a slight inconvience to me because those are things I like to monitor(in general and when I start the car up in the mornings) I want to make sure the car is at operating temps before I leave.

Seems there is a "low temp" light. I will read more on it

Blue light shows its cold and red which i hope will never show means hot. It is stupid how they removed it because technically you wouldnt know if your car was heating up until it is too late and the light is on. SO dumb

I agree that you won't know until it is too late. I bought a bully dog watch dog. It allows me to display four gauges at a time. Temp and voltage being most important to me

I would much rather have a real gage as well. Living in AZ the summers get outrageously hot and I've always liked to keep an eye on the engine temp. The only good thing I read is that the red "hot light" flashes as the vehicle gets close to being too hot.

Hopefully someone can do a DIY on installing a traditional temp gauge that looks nice. (I am not a big fan of the pod mounted gauges)

I am stupidly putting my trust in the modern version of the old "idiot light". Does not make me feel very confident at all.

I am expecting it to flash if it is getting hotter than normal operating temp and glow bright and strong if it is dangerously hot. If it is anything like the new digital warnings on Arctic Cat sleds I will be turning that car off at first sign of a flashing temp light.

Looks good. Do you have details and/or pics about the installation?
