where is the temperature sender unit on my BETA?!

Hi All, I seem to be on a roll with all sorts of problems but on the plus side is helping me get to know the engine intimately! So normally when I insert the key into the ignition and do 1 turn, the three warning lights on the control panel (ie. Battery, Oil Pressure, Temperature) would come on together with the buzzer and once the engine starts they all go off after a few seconds! However today the temperature warning did not light up in the first instance and remained off.

I checked the obvious ie the light bulb and the connection on the panel and they are in order. As a next step I would like to check the continuity from the sender unit but was not able to find it? I could not work backwards from the control panel either! Any ideas where it is located on a beta marine 20? Is the fact that it is not lighting a sign that the wire is shorting to earth? Also next I read that I should try and swap the positives of another warning light that is functioning help!

thanks.

You need one of these http://www.betamarine.co.uk/literatu...C-SOM-1011.pdf

Look at the first picture. The heat exchanger is upper right - that wire going into the round piece on the front is the temp sender. It's two spade connectors.
Check page 37 of the pdf in the link for color of the wires and which goes where.

thanks for that! The "first" picture was rather intuitive - I have this manual and never saw that wire although my engine is a slightly different layout but I am hopeful that the location of the two spade connectors will be around there. thanks again - will check later in the week and report back!
