Default VM1000 Oil temp off and on - need help!

Hi everyone,

My oil temp reading on my VM1000 will initially work and usually stays on for around 30mins. Then the reading drops to 26' and stays like that for awhile (sometimes 30-40 mins, sometimes it comes back quicker) - eventually it will come back. Any help would be appreciated...Is it time to just upgrade the system? If so any advice and a good avionics shop in NorCal? I am near Sacramento and still a student pilot. Thanks in advance!

Bob mills just went through this. 26 is a code for a bad sensor. He was actually able to repair his old sensor but got a new one. The new sensor is a bit flaky sometimes too- it will read 319 once in a while.

Yes. JPI is the custodian of the legacy VM1000 EMS. Call them.
