code p 0565 refers to cruise control master switch. off signal --malfunction === causes wiring---cruise control master switch--ECM
by reading all the codes you will see that common causes are wiring problems and ECM so may be a quick check would be to replace the ECM with a known working unit first and work back from there

Code P0115 Check Engine light on, fan runs continuously at high speed


The ECT sensor needs a power and ground to operate. It uses resistance to create a signal that is sent back to the computer. You can use a volt meter and check the plug for a 5 volt reference on one wire and the other wire will be a ground. If no 5 volt reference, look for a burned out fuse or broken/damaged wiring. A scan tool that shows data would be very helpful in knowing what the sensor is reading. The sensor may be reading properly and the problem may be due to a low coolant level or defective thermostat

What can cause trouble code p0118 engine coolant temp sensor ( high voltage input ) 99 intrepid 2.7 v6


The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is a variable resistor, that measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The ECT sensor has a signal circuit and a low reference circuit. The engine control module (ECM) supplies 5 volts to the ECT signal circuit and a ground for the ECT low reference circuit. When the ECT is cold, the sensor resistance is high. When the ECT increases, the sensor resistance decreases. With high sensor resistance, the ECM detects a high voltage on the ECT signal circuit. With lower sensor resistance, the ECM detects a lower voltage on the ECT signal circuit. If the ECM detects an excessively high ECT signal voltage, which is a low temperature indication, DTC P0118 sets. You have A bad coolant temp sensor or a wiring problem !

2000 Chrysler cirrus 2.4. Idle in neutral drive in reverse but cuts off when put in drive?? Why what do I got to do to fix this?


The most common cause of this is a bad ground to the ECM. When the car is in any gear other than a forward gear, the ECM is not monitoring the emissions. When you put it in drive it does and when there is a bad ground all the return voltages from the sensors are wrong because they are grounded and the ECM is trying to pull ground through them.

97grand am code P0118 replaced ect sensor clear code P0118 returns reference voltage is 2.4 volts engine off key on scan tool shows -38F with engine hot replaced ecm same result


Engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor screwed into a coolant passage in the cylinder head. Sensor resistance is high when coolant temperature is low and resistance drops when coolant temperature increases. The powertrain control module (PCM) provides a 5 volt reference and a ground to the sensor. The PCM monitors voltage drop to determine coolant temperature. If the ECT reads less than freezing temp. when engine has been running for more than a few minutes, the PCM determines a circuit fault and sets this code. Or if the PCM determines the sensor resistance is out of specs, this code is set.

The reference values given below are measured between ECM terminal 72 and ground...



zjlimited_9.jpg


When measuring input / output voltage be careful not to use ECM ground terminals. The ECM will enter fail safe mode once a malfunction is detected and the MI will light up.

Usually, P0118 is indicative of a bad temperature sensor, but doesn't rule out these other possibilities. If you're unsure of how to diagnose a PCM, do not attempt.

HI
the (ECT)coolant temp sensor have two wire and you can test it by (AVO meter) the two wire :-
the 1st is ground from ECM
the 2nd is have 5 volt whine disconnect the connector
of (ECT) and less then whine connected the (ECT)
the (ECT)was electronic thermo resistor
the one wire sensor work to coolant temp gage in dashboard

the (VSS) locate in trans axle it was electromagnetic sensor send signal to determine the distance in (KILOMETER)
