Use the hidden onboard menu to keep tabs on your temperature. No expensive wire tapping necessary.

Start with Key fob out
1) hold trip reset button
2) Insert key fob
3) add up the numbers shown
4) go to 19.X
5) Type the number you summed in step 3 using the trip reset button
6) go to 7.1 for water temperature

This is the method I use when i track my car to make sure I'm not beating it up too harshly.

Normal operating range is between 70 Celsius and about 110 Celsius
