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.

            Comments about BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor:

            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.

              how to install 1999 dodge caravan 3.3

              • A:

                Very easy to install, should be located on top of engine. I like to use a little Teflon tape around threads of new one to prevent leaks but not needed. If you follow the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine you will find the sensor close to that. If you have a check engine light on you will want to have the nice folks at advance clear the codes for you after install.

                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.

                Locate for the top hose coming out of the radiator and follow this to where it connects to the engine. The thermostat is located at that junction point and the temperature sensor is located on the engine side of that connection.
