      I had this same problem. It turned out that I had the coolant sensor wire plugged onto the wrong sensor on the block. Double check that all of your spade connectors are on the right sensors.

      BNIB Garret 50 trim

      These both work great for me. A morning type cruise once a month, opposite our usual evening coffee and grub would be pretty cool.
