    Default stop light

    hi fellas,
    just put a new thermosat on bx 16 valve (1.9). Now the stop light comes on dimly(after around 2 min of driving) then progressively gets brighter as I drive (around 10-15 min). If if rev the engine past 4000rpm it goes dim again. I removed the lead from the water temp sender unit (i think it for the dash and not the ecu) and the light went off along with the temp on the dash.

    Present: 406 petrol 2.0 turbo 97(GB Import), 205 gti 1.9 89, Yamaha TZR250 3xv 93 (Jap Import)

    Past: 205 gti 1.6 1988 (Singpr Import), Citroen 1.9 BX16valve, 405 1.9 mi16, 405 2.0 mi16,
    205 si 93, Mini GT, Datsun SSS x3, Dodge Ram, kingswood, Yamaha TZR250 2ma x2

    That's weird behaviour ... Where I see weird behaviour I first check earth points .... I suggest you clean all the earth points you can find. Possibly the problem will just go away by itself then.

    Default Gaskets/silastic ?

    I wonder if the resealing of the thermostat housing by gasket or sealing compound (silastic?) might be preventing the temp sender earthing - not familiar with your setup, just guessing.
