Default Delta-Q owners: what is the temperature sensor?

Does anybody know what's used as a temp sensor on a QuiQ charger? I need to simulate one to do a brief test. Will a resistor work and what value for normal temperatures? Maybe a kind person could measure one for me. Thank you.

I think this issue is resolved. I measured a sensor in another vehicle and it read 11K at room temperature.

Using an 11K resistor for test purposes works fine. Of course, make sure you have a properly installed temp sensor during normal operation.

(Travis, the factory was closed for summer holiday.)
