As you can see in these 2 wiring diagrams, both the the fuel temp sensor and level sensor are integral together in the tank with the fuel pump, the fact that you messed with the plug on top of the tank and your code changed to the temp sensor leads me to believe you're real close to where the problem is. I agree its an electrical problem, but somethings going on with that plug or harness near it. Highlighted in yellow on the diagram is the ground wire which is shared by the pump, level sensor. The temp sensor ground goes to the same place also, the B19 ground location. Its a blk/wht wire that turns blk and goes to body ground. I would really check that harness plug again. A wiggle test of wires and plugs can find your problem. Try putting some dielectric grease on the plug. Erase the codes and wiggle that plug again with the engine running on atleast KEY ON, if you can and see what code comes back. The temp sensor is for measuring pressure in the tank to make sure there are no vapor leaks, I would still concentrate your efforts on the top of tank where that plug is, did you get the cover for the pump to seal correct when you changed it out also? Remember that ground wire too, its the black wire on the harness plug.
