Re: Capri thermostat problem

Hi Jess, Welcome to the Capri forum :)

I am guessing you have a Mercury Capri like this one

As said its a different Capri to the ones on here but someone might be able to help you still :D

All the best

Re: Cool Dash Update Nov 2018

Thanks for raising this Nick. I am not on fb so would never have known. I should have read this thread further, instead of just Nick's OP and then asking the company the question.
