:hmm:
Good evening all Caddy lovers!

I recently bought a Caddy DeVille 1980 Strecht Limo vehicle,
On the front of the 368 6.0L Carb. engine is de the coolant temp sensor/coolant switch,
with 3 wires (brown,green,blue), 1 goes to the dash i assume for the Engine Temp Light and 2 to some kind of chip/ecu
for hot/cold running regoc.
The sensor wires are hard wired to the sensor, so the new sensor does have to have the 3 wires and a pigtail connector on it.
But the people here in The Netherlands cannot find the right partnr for it, i so do i.
It and the manuals only come up with a 1 wire/connector coolant sensor for 1980 year. But it does def. 3 wires.
Anyone got a clue and a partnr. ?

Greetings out of cloudy Holland

Yes, did not found it either on a long search,
What partnr for the 2 wire , justin case, i really need the 3 wire thing.
Its seems its really an original sensor, so must be there but does not appear in the online manuals or part store catalogs....
