Engine Cooling problem
1996 Dodge Avenger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170 k miles
I have a 96 dodge avenger with the 2.5 v6 170k milage. After a whole host of issues and 3 throttle cables in a week( car temp gauge goes nuts and then the cable seizes) I had a remote car start installed around the 1st of the year, now as soon as I start the car it reads 3/4 on the temp. Could an electrical issue with the way it was installed possibly cause this? Also as the car actually heats up the dash lights flicker, the temp guage shoots up and down and then as stated the throttle cable seizes. Already checked the thermostat, changed the temp sensor. Was told by the tech who installed the started that there was a huge mess under the dash from a botched previous install, could this really be the root of the problem?
