Wait To Start Light

What temps do you guys see your WTS light comming on? This morning it will around 55* and no WTS light. The manual for our trucks says coolant temp has to be 66* for the light to come on. Truck was parked out side but next to the house so my guess is that it was just not needed. Truck does start fine.

Welcome back Fuzzy, Glad you stopped by. We might need to break out a bottle of Jack and catch up. The site has been through some changes, but I am glad to see you back and hope you can stay a while. So how many miles did you put on the old girl before pulling the trigger on a 2012? Congrats on the new rig.. Lets see some pic? You deleted it yet? Did you have problems with your old rig or just ready for a new one?

I did some testing with my ScanGauge II and a thermometer in the cab last night.

Coolant temp was 73* this morning but inside the was 63* So it would make sense that the WTS light does not come on yet.

It should come on when the coolant temp reaches 66*.
