I’m guessing the reading from the OBDII socket will be brown sensor (ECU)...this matches the Stack Dash read out. 

Very little heat coming from heater. 

All good info, thanks. 

Definitely need to check my grounds anyway. Once I’ve worked out how to stop the alarm going off, every time I disconnect the terminal...

To stop the alarm going off you just need to ensure you disarm the alarm and then disconnect the battery before the alarm self arms again.

S2 now?  Well that simplifies things.  See what happens with the new sensor, then I don't know whether it is better to hope for a stuck thermostat or not because it is tricky to get at.

I had read that the S2 only used one sensor, but mine definitely has a black and a blue one fitted.

Im fully preparing for skinned knuckles and lots of swearing to change this thermostat. 😬

The pipework has two holes, so they had to put something in them both.  The blue one is not used for anything on the S2, although I believe it is an entirely functional sensor.

As above the Black one only does anything on an S2 K series. Without the Blue you would use a lot of coolant.

So I’ve just bought a replacement bung....oh well, doh. Good info as always. 👍🏻
