SOURCE: 2001 dodge stratus engine temperature gauge spikes occasionally

Look for a loose connection to the temperature sender unit on the motor.
If all connections OK, you may need a new temp sender unit.

SOURCE: Hi my 1999 1.8T beetle has CEL p0116 and P1196.

P1196=Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit,Bank1-Sensor1 Electrical Malfunction,
this is the exhaust on the drivers side,and the O2 sensor before the converter.

P0116=ECT, this is the Engine Coolant Temperature switch,NOT the temperature sending unit.

P0128 OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description

Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature)
What does that mean?

This means that the engine's PCM detected that the engine has not reached the required temperature level within a specified amount of time after starting the engine. The intent of the P0128 code is to indicate a faulty thermostat. Similar codes: P0125

In determining the engine did not reach a "normal" temperature, it takes into account the length of time the vehicle has been running, the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor reading, the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor reading, and the speed of the vehicle.

You will likely not notice any drivability problems other than the MIL illumination.


Causes

A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

Possible Solutions

Past experience indicates that the most likely solution is to replace the thermostat. However here are some suggestions on troubleshooting and repairing a P0128 OBD-II code:

  • Verify coolant strength & level
  • Verify proper cooling fan operation (check if it's running more than it should). Replace if necessary.
  • Verify proper engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.
  • Verify proper intake air temperature (IAT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.
  • If the above items check out good, replace the thermostat

Code active, unplug coolant sensor dash gauge stops reading


What make vehicle ? some vehicles have two coolant sensors . One for temp. gauge an another one for the ECM / PCM input. Do you have a check engine light lit ?

A DTC will be set if an abnormal reading occurs, P0116 for sensor performance, P0117 low input or

P0118 for a high input. The coolant temperature sensor temperature reading should closely match the

air charge/manifold temperature reading on a scan tool if the engine has not been run for over an hour.
The sensor circuit can be checked for proper voltage using a voltmeter.

P0171....System too Lean (Bank 1)


P0116....Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Range/Performance Problem

right it means you have a faulty O2 sensor and i would imagine the one after the cat ,and the engine is running cold so its either a problem with no thermostat fitted or outside ambient temperature too cold and you will need to put a piece of cardboard in front of radiator to stop the air flow and the wind chill factor

P1196=Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit,Bank1-Sensor1 Electrical Malfunction,
this is the exhaust on the drivers side,and the O2 sensor before the converter.

P0116=ECT, this is the Engine Coolant Temperature switch,NOT the temperature sending unit.

The error is P0116 Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Range/Performance Problem

Could be a stuck thermostat or a bad coolant temperature sensor. That is where I would start.
