My 1989 Nissan Sentra kept having battery problems. I had it replaced. Then the temperature gauge kept moving up towards Hot. I had the radiator flushed. Now the new battery is dead again, and I have been told to get a thermostat, a new battery cable for the positive post (this is definitely bad), and a temperature sending unit, not the one for the gauge, but the one for the computer. The auto parts place says the temperature sending unit for the computer is also called a temperature switch. They have one in stock and are holding it for me. Before I drive this distance, can you tell me if the temperature switch is in fact the temperature sending unit for the computer? I appreciate any help you might give since I know knowing about car repairs.
