I’m having an issue with my 2013 Corsa D 1.4 thermostat/circuit causing my engine to run at a higher temperature than normal. I scanned it and it returned the code ‘P0597-00 Engine Coolant Thermostat Heater Control Circuit’.
I’ve had a look online and a few past posts on the forum about what could cause this code to pop up, and it seems to be a mix between an electrical/wiring issue or thermostat issue.
I’m not too familiar on how to test a car’s electronics - I have a multimeter but only have a very vague idea on how to use it. I’m hoping someone can give me some advice on how to diagnose this problem and narrow things down. I don’t want to throw parts at the car without checking things first.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
If you watch the above, it shows you on testing the the stat, although with these I believe they should be.cjanged.every 5-8 years either way, due to.corsas.runnimg hot anyway, when they fail the temp does not need to run much higher than usual before you get.an.over.heat condition (search Corsa hidden temp gauge) . They are simple enough to change , so I would see it as maintenance step and swap out for a goo quality part (no cheap eBay stuff)
