You done broke the code. Replace the pedal position sensor.

My mistake. You have the M52TU engine, which uses a throttle cable. In that case, the code refers to the thermostat. Bentley says, "M52 coolant thermostat (coolant temperature below thermostat regulating temperature)."

If you have the high cluster, unlock it and observe the Ktmp, test #7. S/b 95 deg+.

edjack Thanks for the help. Could you tell me what the high cluster is and test #7 is. This car runs cool in the winter per the temp gauge and in the middle during the summer. During the winter the gauge hardly moves. However once in a blue moon during the winter the gauge will peg out (car not overheating) after driving appr. 1 mile. I would pull over and shut off car and restart and all indications will be normal.( happened 3 times in 3 years). Do you think i should go after the thermostat and sensor? (which sensor). Thanks again
