I have reset the computer by disconnecting the battery. I drove the car for a while and no light and the cruise worked, but now we are back to square one. It is the same code and I am at a loss for what to do next....

I don't think we are at square one. I think we need to combine your overheating thread and this one.

The quad you are mentioning is for overheat issues.

Chris..you recently changed belts? Did you route properly?

As in purging when cold? No, I didn't know that was possible. how do I do that? Just open the bleed screw?

We need a scan to see if your PCM temperature reading matches the gauge. If the PCM ECT is bad, the PCM will think you're running hotter than you really are.

Well I replaced both sensors for the temp, the one for the gauge and the one for the computer. I would assume they are correct becuase as I watch the temp climb, I can see my oil pressure go down, and as well all know the pressure is higher when cold....... If there I have bought a new RAD. cap to try that and will put it on before going home tonight, if that doesn't work, i guess I will take it in and have it scanned......
