    Electric Water Pump?

    Can anyone tell me how these wire up? I have heard of people wiring in an idiot light so you know when they fail, before frying your engine. If you know how to wire this light in, I really appreciate if you would let me know how.

    If you hear the pump getting louder, your seals are going. Replace them or the armature is next. That happened to me, I shut down before any damage was done. Mezeire rebuilt the pump under warranty. Running fine ever since, but I listen more closely

    I do not know about how to wire in an idiot light for this. However, your car comes with one. When my pump failed, the temperature rose rapidly triggering the check gauges light. I saw the temperature going up, turned on the heater and pulled over. No damage to my motor. I got a UOA to confirm this.
