is this really bad??
I was installing my jetworks kit last night. When I drilled and taped the hole for the temp senson to go into I didnt drill it deep enough. about 40 thou to shallow. Well when I put my sensor in it broke the little electrode on the end. My question is can I ride without the sensor hooked up or do I need to order a new one? Is there a resistor mod I can do for a temp fix untill I get a new sensor? I looked on boats.net and couldnt tell which one I needed. I can bet its the little 155$ sensor... Any one have the correct part number for that part?

I dont use a water temp sensor.
10k ohm resistor will shut the light off (and let it start and run).

2 k ohm resistor works well till you can find a second hand temp sensor..

bow listen to rich (wfo)
i used a 2 k ohm but if he says 10 then thats the one to use...i used 10 in my cat temp line and 2 in water...
it dont mean i am right it means ive been lucky...THIS TIME

Thanks yall!!! Im gonna take mine out and just run a resistor. Is the resistance any different in the 05/06 boats vs the 03/04? Just checkin! I have a bunch of resistors I keep on my ski just in case I need to do a quick workaround on a problem.
thanks again I owe yall some beer!

1000 ohm is what you need, not a 10000.

my bad mine is a 1 k ohm not 2 k ohm...had to go check..
dam colours confuse the hell out of me....

Make sure you put some JB Weld or something in the hole where the sensor was going to go.

I will probably use a metric plug with some plumbers dope to seal it... I will try a few resistors and see. thanks all!!!
