2008 AURA XE
Default 08 aura ect sensor or thermostat issue

My temp gauge stops working and ac won't work. However, it will start working and ac and everything works fine. The car isn't getting hot. I went to auto zone and had them put the scanner thing on it. I got back error codes p0013, p0128, p1682. There is 130000 miles on the car. How do I determine if it's the ect or the thermostat?

Default Re: 08 aura ect sensor or thermostat issue

As a general rule P0128 is caused by a stuck open thermostat. Without a scanner that can display the ECT sensor temperature output it's guesswork. However, in your case with the gauge indication failing. I'd be inclined to inspect the wiring and connector to the ECT sensor and if it appears OK, change the ECT sensor.
I've listed information on your codes below. If you aren't having any other issues, you should clear the codes and see if they return.
