Temp. sending units.

The 5.9 has two temperature sending units. Heading home tonight I was bebopping along and noticed the CEL was on. All my gauges read fine so I stopped to get something to eat and flipped the key to get the codes. When I got home the code came up as "engine too cool for too long". Since I was in the proiper operating range for a 5.9, I figure the sending unit that talks to the computer isn't reading right. There are two sending units. Does anybody know which is for the gauge and which for the computer?

On what year of 5.9? I never knew the 5.9 had two, I know my 98 3.9 only has 1.

But I have replaced them before, they weren't but like 8 bucks each? Might as well replace them both if they are the same price for your truck.

my ol 99' 5.2 had one sender. And not to come off as a jerk, but just unplug one of the senders, if its the gauge one, you'll throw a check gauge light.

My 1997 Dodge Ram with a 5.9 has two senders. I believe its the one closest to the thermostat housing.

Just pull the plug off the sender. The gauge will immediately quit working.

code set because t-stat is faulty...engine stayed below programmed temp too long..

The sender for the gauge will have one wire to it....sender for ECM will have 2 wires to it...

replace t-stat with correct heat range and you should be good to go
