Dear friend-fitting the sensor should have cleared the fault code,but maybe there is another one hiding somewhere.remove the battery termenal and leave for 30 minutes re-connect and check again,if no joy take to dealership to reset.

Yes the light will have to be reset. If you cant reset by disconnection the battery for a couple minutes you will need to have it done with a scanner. Also usually its not the sensor that throws the code. Its usually a stuck open thermostat. If you have a gauge look to see if its been running on the colder side lately. Sometimes the engine will warm up normally but going down the freeway it will cool off to about 160 degrees when in fact its should be around 200 degrees. A scanner will show this while driving if you only have a idiot light. This is a sign of a bad thermostat

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
