Not sure that I understand. Are you saying that code P1116 is for a faulty PCM (powertrain control module)? The references that I find say that the engine temp sensor is failing it's self-test. Wouldn't this mean that the sensor should be replaced?

I appreciate your answer. I have purchased a replacement sensor, but if I need to look elsewhere, I'd rather take the sensor back than have blown that $20 and need to spend more time/money elsewhere. Thanks.
