Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. What is the chassis model and your engine make and model? Check the harness between the sensor and ECM for damaged wiring and connector pins. I can help with some schematics if necessary once I have the engine and chassis information. Let me know

If the coolant level is full and the sensor is new, the problem is most likely in the wiring between the sensor and ECM.

How much voltage should be going to the sensor?
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 2 years ago

Sensor voltage for all sensors will be a 5 volt signal from the ECM and then the ECM reads return voltage

Pin 32 is the return on the OEM connector

Is that the black connector?
Technician: Daniel Wilson,

Furthest to the Right facing the ECM ports

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
do I test the pin on the ecm or the connector?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I tested pin 32 on the connector and there's no contact.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the update, No continuity? so you have an open circuit or wire between the sensor and the ECM? If so make a test wire and run a test wire to see if the code goes away.

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok
Where would I run a test wire to?
Where would I tie it in to.?
Does the return wire go direct to the ecm or does it have a fuse in between?
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 2 years ago

Read the schematic I posted. it give the pins for the return of the sensor to the pin 32... see if the fault goes away.

It shows another connector in the circuit as well going through pins A and B on that connector too.

Technician: Daniel Wilson,

Shows Return is terminal A from the sensor black and white according to the schematic. Go from A from the sensor to 32 on the ECM

I did that and there's no response.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,

Sounds like a problem with the ECM . Try having the software updated and reflashed to see if your problem resolves. Let me know.
