The shop manual says the "inlet air temperature sensor replaces the intake air temperature sensor AND the battery temperature sensor". This sensor hangs off of the flexible air inlet duct. Check for:

-loose/broken wire
-corroded connector
-poor conection of the intake hose itself to the air filter box and/or throttle body

If that all looks good, I'd replace the sensor...

...and remember, it may take disconnecting the battery for a few minutes to get the code to clear once you do find the problem.

Thanks.... I recently changed the timing belt and the p1188, p517 codes keep popping up. When the codes come up the engine begins to surge at idle. the wife says if you drive it 'easy' its fine but once you 'get on it' a little the codes come up. It seems to be when the engine comes under a load. When you're climbing a hill or something like that. Are these sensors linked somehow?

P0517 could be responsible for rough running all by itself. The inlet air temperature sensor is trying to figure out how hot and humid the incoming air to the engine is and adjusting timing and fuel delivery for the best operation.

P1188 means Engine Oil Temperature Sensor Ckt. High Voltage. I couldn't find anything in the shop manual about this sensor. MAYBE it is part of the oil pressure switch itself. That switch is located near the oil filter, about dead center under the car and about -10" above the seam between the oil pan and the block. Look for wires! :-)

The engine gets shoved around a bit when replacing the timing belt, so one or the other of these sensors could be loose or broken (fragile plastic sensor housings being pushed around by a 2.4L lump is risky for the sensor). Look for loose or broken wiring harnesses.

The inlet air sensor is about $25 and will take 2 minutes to change. Maybe ask the parts counter person if they carry the engine oil temperature sensor. See if they know enough to offer the oil pressure switch instead (~$20).

You might lose a little oil when replacing the oil pressure switch.

Let us know how it turns out!

I get the 1188 code to be 'Throttle Inlet Pressure Sensor' code.

This is problem is getting confusing and difficult to diagnose. It appears that the same 3 codes keep popping up. P1188, P0551, P0517. I can erase the codes, drive the car, sometimes the codes come back on within a mile or two and sometimes its 50 or 60 miles before it comes back on. Could these three sensors be all tied together somehow? Could a voltage drop in one of them cause the other two to trip?

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

There have been reports here of spurious codes being thrown by a battery that is past its prime. How much life is left in yours? Battery terminals look goos? Ground wire loose? Any other electrical gremlins going on?

Where are you checking your OBD codes? I've always counted on this site:
Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep Computer Error Codes

It is frustrating when the problem doesn't surface after some concentrated troubleshooting. I'm out of good ideas, so I'll offer this:

Disconnect the battery, step on the brakes for a moment, re-connect the battery. The car will go through a few starts before it completes its testing, so codes might not come back right away.

Use the "key dance" to check for codes each time you drive it (I know you have the scanner). Turn the car ON but do not start it, then turn OFF, ON, OFF, and back ON. The odometer will show the codes followed by "done". Hopefully they are the same codes you've obtained with the scanner.

If the codes are the same, you can demonstrate the probem reliably (you said it does it when you step on it a little), and you're sure it isn't loose connections (battery, ground, involves sensors) then I would be heading to the pros...

Please do share the resolution, we all learn from each other. I hope it's something cheap to fix!

Still working on problem.....replaced the TIP sensor with no luck....next is to replace the power steering pressure switch. After that I'm going to replace all of the 'formed, hard plastic vaccum lines'. Have other major financial issues now. Wife has cancer, son(US Marine) home on emergency leave, spun bearing in his 07 pt. Would like some good luck for a change!
