My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
This code can indicate the engine temperature sensor circuit short to ground.Check the wiring to the engine and see if any wiring is shorted at all and if found o.k. the engine temperature sensor may be faulty needing replaced.
Thanks Pete
