this sensor is used by the computer on dodge/eagle/ Mitsubishi cars to tell the computer whether or not the engine is hot or cold, therefore controlling the fuel delivery, once this sensor starts giving a false reading, the computer senses that the engine has overheated and will not start. this does not necessarily mean that the engine is actually overheated though, it's just a failsafe that the factory has programmed into the system to protect the engine.

                The CJ model Jeep wouldn't start, but like other vehicles once the coolant temperature sensor fails, and is registering (within itself) an overheated engine, then the computer disallows a start-up as a fail-safe. This is the second vehicle I know of where this has happened. It's an extremely easy fix but can't be diagnosed with OBDII. So I would recommend replacing this (inexpensive) unit first on a vehicle that 'all of a sudden' won't start.

                    Hello John! No. By "says bad coolant sensor" do you mean a check engine light or low coolant light? If it's a check engine light, I need you to provide the error code so I can assist you further.

The thermostat is located at that junction point and the temperature sensor is located on the engine side of that connection.
