P0116 CHRYSLER code

P0116 is the OBD-II generic code that indicates the engine control module (ECM) ECT monitor has read that the ECT sensor range or the sensor performance is not as the ECM expected when starting from a cold start and warm shut down, to the next cold start.

How do I fix P0116 code?

Zitat von Youtube: In most cars the primary ect sensor is installed near the thermostat in the cylinder. Head remove the ecd sensor from the engine. Use a multimeter to proceed a test on the ect.

What can cause a P0116 code?

Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0116 stands for “Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit Range/Performance.” This DTC is triggered by the PCM after it detects that the voltage signals relayed by the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor fall outside the normal manufacturer-specified range.

What does trouble code P0116 mean?

The Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor converts the coolant temperature into a voltage that is high when the engine is cold and low as the engine warms up. Code P0116 is set when the Powertrain Control module sees irrational out of specification voltage signals from the coolant temperature circuit.

Where is coolant temperature sensor?

In most cars, the primary ECT sensor (ECT sensor 1) is installed near the thermostat in the cylinder head or block or on the thermostat housing. A second coolant temperature sensor could be installed in another part of the engine, or in the radiator.
