Its reading P0125 which we looked up and know it means insufficient coolant temp for closed loop fuel control,

This is a friends car and my husband doesn't have a book on it so I was wondering if you could give him some sugestions
First let me say he has done the following already.
replaced plugs and wires, and fuel filter, and checked the fuel pressure and it was 50lbs.
But don't know where to go from here.
Thank you so much in advance.
