patience , and a 13 MM wrench , you gotta get your arms in there deep , that lower bolt does not need to come all the way off , the thermostat housing has a slot at the bottom for easier access , loosen it about 3.4 of the way and you can get the housing out , experience says a premium thermostat will give you grief trying to reinstall , get a regular duty thermostat .reverse procedure.

I had the same code on my 2001 dodge 2500. The truck wouldn't shift from 3-4. I pulled the trans pan off and replaced a broken spring ($2.00). It is behind a thin plate with 3-4 small torq screws. You don't have to remove the valvebody. Only took me 45 minutes to fix.
I would like to give thanks to Jeff Russel from Teal automotive. He said this is a very common problem. He sells any part for any automatic Transmision and his prices are very affordable.
Here is a link to the website.
Hope this helps.

Check the gauge by holding in the trip odometer reset button and turn key to run,hold button for 10 seconds this will iniate a diagnostics on all the gauges,and lights if gauge doesn't move during this test replace gauge,if it does move then check the wires on the plug at the engine coolant temp sensor (ects) you can check the sensor by using a ohms meter by unpplugging it and check ohm's or resistance when cold and then start engine as the engine warms up the ohm's reading should gradually lower as the sensor is a thermister and as it warms up the resistance will drop.
