Your circuit is analog. See the upper right corner of the diagram. The PCM is getting the signal, or the car would not be shifting right. You must have a bad connection from the "T" in the diagram to the cluster. If that "T" is under the car, it is susceptible to the harsh environment.

Does the cooling fan come on ? Not the thermostat . Sitting still no air movement through the radiator ,when you drive air flows through the radiator. I would be looking at a problem with the cooling fan . Relay maybe, fan motor etc...

Where did he get the power from to run the fan,if he just used a hot wire from inside the car it most likely blew the fuse for ignition as the engine fan gets its power from a relay in the power distribution box under the hood as far as the fan goes if it ran with the wire then the engine coolant temp sensor is probably bad

White smoke usually means coolant getting into engine and burning. The smoke will find the easiest place to come out. The reason it happens after heat is turned on is the coolant is active more

the ignition "control" module is internal to the engine control module. however the ignition coil is mounted right on top of the engine on the valve cover. don't forget to unlock the lock on the connector before unplugging it or you might break the connector trying to unplug it

the crank sensor is located on the back of the engine above the oil filter. remove the connector and the bolt that holds it in (only one) and remove with a twisting motion. try not to pry it because they can break off in there!!!

if your not using a scan tool you disconnect the battery for 60 seconds and it will clear all codes in the PCM with a scan tool it does the same.
