Sounds to me like those great resistor "chips" they sell on ebay...

keep in mind though, that resistor chip is aimed at lesser makes of vehicles that are easily tricked into runningricher by putting the resistor chip into the water temp sensor circuit.

unless of course I just stepped all over my face looking for my mouth and you mean a different resistor chip.
