Has the temp gauge problem happened before and keep happening or was it a one time thing?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have check engine light on now. I cannot repeat the issue. This is the first time that I know of.
Chrysler Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 months ago

T​his would mean temp sensor, connector, or wiring. Considering temp gauge went back down when shifting into reverse this would point toward wiring. I would recommend doing a visual inspection of wiring going to temp sensor. Next thing to do would be to reset the code and see if you can get it to come back when wiggling wires and if so look in that area for damaged wiring. Also wiggle connector to see if it acts up if so replace connector. I'd expect around a $300 repair to have this fixed at a shop. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

What else does the ect share a ground with?
Chrysler Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 months ago

It shares ground circuit with map sensor and ac pressure sensor, here is a wiring diagram for circuit.

Could a failure of those sensors cause this?
Chrysler Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 months ago

I doubt it because then you would have codes for those too. Here are also testing instructions from manual for code.

Could I get a diagram of the ground locations?
Chrysler Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 months ago

T​his sensor is grounded directly through ECM so a specific ground wouldn't cause this problem. I'm happy to give you locations though if you still want them. Let me know, thanks.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
