Default Re: changed ECTS now temp guage not woorking

OK, i re-connected the "original" sensor without inserting it into the cylinder head, reset the PCM as you suggested, and turned the ignition on and the temperature gauge came up to about 1/4, so that is a good sign and I guess would imply that i got a bad sensor or wrong sensor from the parts store?

Both the original sensor and the connector looked good with no bent pins or visible signs of damage.

I will need to wait until the car cools down to put the original sensor back into the cylinder head.

As an FYI... The code with the "NEW" sensor is P0117 - "engine coolant temperature circuit" - Low Input.

Thank you very much for the advice!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
