S6 Plus EGT fault

Post by Ian »

Hi, hoping someone can shed some light, I have a S6 Plus GP with single EGT but have had the following happen.

Initial sensor reading 950 degrees (default reading) tested all wiring and correct so replaced sensor.
2nd sensor initially started to read while car being dyno'd then temps dropped to 30 degrees while engine running.
3rd sensor reads 28 degrees while running and if I disconnect the sensor the reading stays at this and does not default to 950.

Sensors are KA Sensors Inconel K Type EGT Probe 1/8NPT
Pinned in on C26 and C27
Scal - Input: Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor 1 - KT+
Input configuration - K-Type Thermocouple
Linearisation set to Zero

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have the calibration file?

Sounds like you connected the new sensors up reverse polarity, they read opposite so it would show the temp reducing

Forgot all about this thread. Found the fault it actually turned out to be a short in the EGT extension cable, although no signs of damage I created a temporary extension and temperature readings started to make sense!
