I will see if I can find my test light, and I will also see if I can run fresh codes for you. Not sure if I have multiple problems, or single problem with multiple symptoms.
I checked the draw at the battery terminals per your procedure, but test light didn't have even the faintest glow.
I then re-ran my codes, both cold and warm. First, I'll give you the old codes, about a year or so old (engine at running temp): 9,15,23,24,41,46.
Since then, apparently some of those codes seem to have been cleared, and the only codes that showed today are as follows: Cold - 41,46; Warm - 9,41,46.
These are, of course, in the OBD-1 system. My Haynes manual (please don't laugh too hard) indicates a Coolant Temp Sensor Fault for the Code 9, and it doesn't list the codes 41 or 46.
I don't believe I have a whole lot more information I can give you from here other than to answer any other questions you may have, so it's all back to you buddy! Even if we don't completely solve it, it would help just to know where to best start poking around. Thanks!
So, Coolant Temp Sensor, and the VRIS "array". OK, let me know what you find out with your research. Thanks so much.
Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor
The ECT sensor is mounted in the intake manifold and is used to detect coolant temperature throughout the engine temperature range. The ECT sensor provides this information to the PCM for use in calculating the fuel injection amount
Scottdagoalie, I did leave the +ive post connected, did not create my own draw. Will be at work all day today, will try later tonight or more likely tomorrow.
