Hi all. Following on from a previous enquiry, I had my thermostat changed today, and discovered that there was no electrical connector on the old one.

What purpose does it serve, as I've read different views. I had mine changed in an attempt to improve the in car heating.

I was also told that the fan comes on at 89 degrees! I guess the temp sensor is next. Does this measure metal temp, or coolant temp?

I've just spoken to my Mechanic again and he said that my car doesn't have any wiring for the electric part of the thermostat either!

I'm really confused now, as I thought that all Mondeos like mine had this feature. Any ideas?
