Add-on parts: sprinter transmission temperature display, LED
This kit allows you in combination with the DVM module to read out the transmission temperature of a Mercedes Sprinter or Dodge Sprinter van. The Sprinter is sold in North America with an automatic
transmission and that transmission has already a built-in temperature sensor. A cable runs from
the sensor to the central electrical area under the drivers seat. This
is where you can connect this kit. The transmission temperature will
be displayed in 'F. Optimal temperatures for the Sprinter's transmissions fluid are between 140'F and 200'F.
It is useful to monitor the transmission temperature during towing.
Towing causes the transmission to run hot and one of the main reason for transmission failure is the temperature going too high.
Knowing the normal operating temperature and watching the display will as well warn you about other problems like e.g leaking fluid.
Note that this is only an "add-on" to the DVM
module. Thus you need to order this "add-on" AND the DVM module.
You will need to have good soldering skills and you must be able to read and
understand a circuit diagram. You install this kit at your own risk. Poor cabling practice, especially loose connectors and missing insulation may result in damages to your car. You do not need any knowledge about microcontrollers. The chip is pre-loaded with software and you just have to assemble the whole display. We are not a Mercedes dealership and we can not advice you about
the compatibility with specific models. So far we have however not had
any customer reporting any incompatibility with a North American Sprinter model.
