Hi Neville, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, it would appear to be a false positive issue. Proposed preliminary checks (if have not been done) :

  • • test the sensor (thermistor at the oil cooler) (least likely);
  • • check the wiring particularly from sensor to control unit (pair of yellow/black wires) to TEMP indicator light (yellow/red wire) (likely);
  • • verify functionality of control unit (located in front of the gas tank) (most likely).

The control unit is a combo device; i.e. it is the voltage regulator, fan motor control and hot lamp hot lamp control.
