Hi, I finally got my hands on a code reader - here are my findings:
Two codes came up
Primary code = P0118, engine coolant temperature circuit high input. Freeze frame date for this code =
Fuel system 1 = open load
Fuel slystem 2 = open load
Calculated load = 0.0%
Engine coolant temperature = -39 F.
STFT Bank 1 = 0.0%
LTFT Bank 1 = 5.4%
STFT Bank 2 = 0.0%
LTFT Bank 2 = 3.1%
Intake manifold pressure = 28.0 in. Hg.
Engine r.P.M. = 000 r.P.M.
Vehicle speed = 0 mph
Ignition timing = 0.0 degrees
Intake air temperature = 66 F.
Mass air flow sensro = 0.00 lb/min
Throttle position = 18.4%
Secondary code = P0116 - Temperature circuit range/performance. This code comes up as a "pending code".
Another point that might be worth noting:
When I initially plugged in the code reader the first code came up as a "Red LED" code
After I disconnected the reader and reconnected the code came up as a "yellow LED" code - not sure if this is normal as I have never used a code reader before!
Another interesting finding - after I noticed my electrical problem I was scrolling through my instrument cluster data information which includes odometer, oil life, trip meters etc. My total engine hour meter has defaulted back to zero hours - looks like the computer has lost some memory? All other data is as per what it should be. Hope this information helps determine what my problem is. Thanks and look forward to your reply. Claude
