Re: power loss light
Sorry, I did not tell the whole story.. I know it will set the power loss light when disconnecting the lead from the sensor. I did try to push a paper clip into the connector to do the back probe, but I could not get any continuity and was afraid of damaging the wires.. That is the reason I pulled the connector to get a voltage check.. After I got the 5.3 volts and then zero volts using the jumper, I shut the car off and plugged the sensor back up. I disconnected the battery ground lead for a few minutes, then re installed it.. I then turned the key on, off, on, off, on, to check the codes.. At that time I would only get code 12, (battery disconnected). I would then crank the car and go out for a drive.. It usually threw the power loss light on within a minute. I would pull over and check the code and it was 23 again.. I would continue driving and when the temp got to normal, If the light kicked on again, which it usually did, I would just let off the gas and switch the key off for a couple seconds and then back on.. The light reset and I sometimes could drive for quite a while before it kicked on again, or it may do it in just a minute..
Thanks again, I really appreciate the help !!!
