Coolant Temp Sensor on my 05 Accord

The check engine light came on recently. Codes tell me that the coolant temp sensor is not working. I bought a new one and a friend (former mechanic) replaced it. It was located on the back of the engine. He cleared the codes, but they immediately returned. What's wrong?

'05 Grand Am 3.4 V6 Temp Gauge not Working all of a sudden.


Sounds like a temp sensor or wiring problem.
You may only have one sensor for both the gauge and the engine computer.
If the computer temp sensor fails, or is not sending a signal to the engine computer, the fans will run as a precaution to keep the engine from overheating.
If you have replaced the correct sensor, it could be a wiring problem, or the engine coolant could be low enough to not touch the sensor.
If the coolant sensor is not sending a signal, the check engine light should also be on.

Trouble codes p0118 temperature po118


code p0118 refers to engine coolant temperature (ETC) sensor ---circuit malfunction===causes---coolant thermostat---wiring open circuit/short to positive---wiring short to ground---ground wire defective---ECT sensor.. The temp gauge works off a temperature sender unit separate to the coolant sensor and if it is reading 100 then it indicates an overheat situation in the engine . Probably why the engine light is coming on. As the thermostat is in the list of causes I would replace it as a precaution. The coolant sensor is what tells the CPU to turn on the electric fans to cool the radiator

Primary cooling fan only comes on when i turn ac on


You would need a scanner and an inferred temp sensor to troubleshoot the system.
You need to know what the actual engine temp is, and what the temp sensor is telling the computer.
If and when the engine reaches 220 degrees, the engine temp sensor should be sending that data to the computer and it should ground the fan relay to activate it.
Unplugging the sensor and having the fan run tells you the sensor is connected, and there should have been a trouble code set at that time.
It is possible the coolant level is low, or something else preventing the temp sensor sending the correct data.

Gs300 coolant is bubbling in resevoir,but temp is fine ?


Get coolant temp sensor checked.

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.


Pressure test will help you to know from where exactly coolant/refrigerant is getting leaked.

Getting codes PO431, PO421, PO128


2003 saturn vue, we dont have the engine size, the codes should be and are the same, po 128 means; cooling temp is out of spec, make sure the coolant is full, then replace the coolant emp sensor and make sure the connection is good, i would also replace the thermostant, this is a common code on these and most of the time its the coolant temp sensor or thermostant, ive learned to replace then both to avoid future engine lights with code po128. next we will check the code # po421, this code is that the computer sees that the cat converters are taking to long to warm up, code po 431 is also the same as po421, this code is related to the thermostant and sensor, the sensor give the computer the wrong temp readings and then the compuetr thinks the engine is hotter than it is and thinks the converters should be also hot like the motor but the coolant temp is giving a false reading, if you replace the coolant temp sensor and the thermostant and fill coolant , then reset the light and you will solve the problem, i hope this is helpful, also the sensor is located to the right of the engine if you are standing in front of the motor, heres a picture of the sensor, remember to check connector heres a pic of the connector, good luck.johnjohn2_20.jpg

I HAVE A 2007 CHEVY COBALT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON I CHECKED THE COOLANT TEMP GAUGE THE DIGITAL GAUGE READING WAS ONLY SHOWING THREE BROKEN LINES. I CHECKED COOLANT LEVEL WHICH WAS FINE. ENGINE DID...


I had this problem with a 2007 Chevy Cobalt. I changed the coolant sensor and even though the check engine light went out I still had a reading of "---" on the coolant gauge. The problem is most likely one of three things: a low coolant level, a bad coolant sensor, or the thermostat needs to be replaced. The only other possible thing it could be is a bad BCM (Body Control Module) which in that case you would most likely be having other weird problems.

The Thermostat and the sensor are both very easy to get to and replace. Take off the engine cover by removing the oil cap and they are both to the rear of the engine on the driver's side. They are right next to each other.

Hope this helps!

When i connect my colant temp sw my car stumbles?


The coolant temp sensor is shot. Replace it. When it is connected, it gives the ignition module erroneous temp readings, and computer reacts randomly.When sensor is disconnected the car behaves as if it was cold, and it runs steadily, but probably not burning efficiently, and more important, module detects the missing sensor, and turns on the check engine light.

My check engine light came on in my 2002 New VW Beetle, stick shift not a turbo. Ran code and says p0117 temp circuit, I may need new Coolant temperature sensor. My a/c died two weeks ago. Could this be...


If it's a 2.0L, then the coolant sensor would be an easy fix. It's between the Air box / engine (on top of the coolant flange on the end of the head). If you do that, you probably should do a thermostat. Usually it's recommended to replace the thermostat when you do a coolant temp sensor, but that's up to you.

Coolant doesn't heat up!


the temp sensor just tells you the temp of the coolant and it controlls the coolant fan to turn on and off at a certain temperature........have you check for coolant leeaks???
