    Hiya, I'm gonna be upgrading my car soon from anologue to the 18 Button OBC, Just wondering how I would go about adding an external temp sensor to this as my car isn't fitted with one, but there's a slot for it on the OBC I believe?

    Would I just wire it from the correct pin on the OBC to the temp sensor for power then just earth it to the chassis?

    Cheers - Tom

    You got it in one

    It lives in the passenger side brake ducting, then just run a wire into the OBC, and one to ground in the engine bay somewhere !

    No worries - If you get any issues with installing the sensor, or any part of the OBC, then just ask - There's plenty of people, myself included, who have done the conversion !

    Thanks , Since you've done it, just another quick question, Does the fuel range function correctly telling me how far I have left etc?
