Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid
Had car repaired by incompetent mechanics. Had timing belt and intake gasket replaced. When I got the car back it was overheating. Took it back to mechanic. They forgot to reconnect 3 vacuum tubes, reconnect fans, and bleed coolant system. No longer overheating but have a recurring check engine light. All codes indicated 5 different sensors were bad. Could this have anything to do with repairs made? hard to imagine 5 sensors going bad at once.
The diagnostic module has more than likely snagged those sensors and kept the info in memory for later diagnostis reading. All those sensors are related to the work done and the computer just needs a memory dump. Remove your negative battery post for 15 seconds . Good Luck

Yes, the Computer, on your car detects, all sensors . I, would recommend going to Auto Zone,
and have a Code Reader , recheck your car after
you disconnect negative battery cable, for at least 5 minutes, will wipe out memory and reset problem codes, after you start engine. You will start a new set of any problem codes.
P.S. Auto Zone, no charge for Code Reader, a Dealer will charge at least $ 75.00 for a 5 second read ! Not !!! get it read for free.
