2006 2.4l, code P2183
Howdy folks. Hoping somebody can help me out with this, my first problem on our new-to-us 2006 Accord. The car has 30k miles, it's an EX-L with the 4 cylinder and stick shift.
The CEL is on and the scanner reveals code P2183 "engine coolant temp sensor 2CKT range/perf", as well as a pending code P0128 "coolant temp below thermostat regulating temp". The freeze data showed the coolant temp being the same as the intake air temp, FWIW.
The car behaves quite normally, warms up quickly, blows plenty of heat, etc. This leads me to think perhaps it's the sensor rather than the thermostat?
Anyway, it looks like there's a coolant temperature sensor on the lower, passenger side of the radiator. But I've read references to this car having two sensors, and I don't want to throw parts at it if I don't know that I'm even looking at the right one. Also don't want to throw a sensor at it if it may in fact be the thermostat just on the edge of proper operation.
Any thoughts? Thanks,
