P0128 - 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.

Symptoms:
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:
* Low engine coolant level
* Leaking or stuck open thermostat
* Faulty cooling fan (running too much)
* Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
* Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor

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
* If Nissan vehicle, check for a TSB such as this one. The ECM may need to be reprogrammed to correct the P0128 code

Hope helps (remember rated and commet this).

Code p0128


As you have determined, the P0128 code is related to a low coolant temperature.

This can be one or two issues - the thermostat or the temperature sensor itself. If you're confident that the thermostat was properly replaced - you should probably look into the temperature senor itself.

Here's a video about the P0128 code diagnosing process.

Therm. is being held open causing the engine to not heat up to a full 190 degrees. make sure you put in a 190 degree therm. and unhook the negative battery cable for at least 5 minutes to clear the code. the system could need a flush too, with over 100,000 miles or 5 years

Hi, you have a faulty thermostat, so you should just need a thermostat, associated gasket (or gasket maker), and some fresh antifreeze. Consult a vehicle-specific manual for specifics on your particular engine.

I have p1000 and c1175 codes


P0128 is a Coolant Thermostat Malfunction

P1000 shows that the fault code has been reset recently (but this code will not bring the warning light on)

C1175 I think is Speed Wheel Sensor LR Input Circuit Failure or Input circuit failure and could be directly related to your ABS fault light indication.

P0128 - Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature)

P0410 - Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction
(has to do with exhaust system)

Note: There is a technical service bulletin (TSB) regarding code P0410 for a number of GM models. The TSB calls for the replacement of the AIR pump and the installation of a new secondary injection hose.
