I assume you mean "P0180" not "p180", which is not a valid OBD Diagnostic Test Code.

So you replaced the fuel pump module without even diagnosing this code??? WOW! That was an EXPENSIVE mistake!

You pretty much answered your own question. The wires are located between the fuel pump module (Tank Fuel Temperature "TFT" sensor), the PCM and the ground point for the sensor.

Connector pins "T" and "E" at the fuel pump module connector are the wires for the TFT sensor

I wanna replase a water outlet in my Jetta 2.0 GL 1998. Who knows how to do it in a better way?

It will cost you more to try to modify the coolet water outlet in your jetta than it is to replace it. (under $20.00)

AWD Light stays on

3rd dealer stated that the problem was in the differential pump valve, when the temperture sensor was giving a false reading and disconnecting the rear wheel drive. Replaced with GM Part 88896067, and it solved the problem. Mechanic stated that if it is ONLY the AWD light, then this is usually the problem. If the ABS Disable light also goes on, then it is the harness on the wheel sensor.

I have a 1998 ford ranger and the temperture gauge will not work. If i ground the wire that goes to sensor the gauge moves I replace the sensor and nothing happens the gauge never moves.

When you grounded the wire which goes to the sensor you produced a short to ground thru the guage. This probably either blew a fuse or burned out the meter.

1989 Suzuki 4 wheel drive problem

welcome to part time 4wd, its for ice and offroad ONLY.
rule #1 PT 4wd needs at least 1 tire on ice or say dirt.
if not it will WIND UP AND BIND UP and damage the transfer case chain. (i see you did that)!!!
also the locks love to fail, fixed many.
they need greasing every 15k miles, per the book .
its a constant service, and if water gets inside, AS ALL DO.
then more service. on the wheel locks.
if one fails the whole axle fails in 4wd.(slips but no grind/bind)

got one tire on ICE or now,????


the question is , as for ever 1944 jeeps to now, PT
is what if road is 1/2 ice,?
dry, then ice then dry then ice. dig?

answer, go to 2H and driver slower!!!
or sell car and get a 2004+ Vitara with full time 4wd
in USA suzuki is bugged out, sold all mine, they sux now.
never buy any suzuki in USA or CANADA
buy a real JEEP. (or Rav4 or >?) nor buy any ISUZU. here.
