Get a flashlight and you may need to remove a cover on top of engine to see it. If you feel uncomfortable doing it have a pro do it for you or someone who is more familiar with engines.

Thank you for your help, but I assume your have never changed a ect sensor on on this particular vehicle. I am very comfortable around engine's but there is so much plastic and stuff on and around this engine. It is not a simple procedure to change. Was just hoping someone has changed one and could shed some light on how to change it

Well you have to remove most of the crap around to get to it. Some things are no easy task.

No there is only one sensor now it's going to have to be checked for a shorted wire or possibly a bad pcm or any of the things listed in pic

My engine light is been on for a while, so I went to auto advance and autozone and they ran the scanner. Both test came with the coolant tempeture sensor, so I took the jeep to pepboy and replace the sensor. So, after driving the jeep for a while the engine light came back on again, so I took the jeep back for scanner and it gave me the same reading. Sensor temp coolant. Is there something else I'm not doing right? Or there's more than one sensor? Please help.
