Sorry, I wasn't clear. The coolant temp reading on the scan tool reads 0 degrees F at start-up and when the dash gauge reaches approx 200 and the thermostat begins cycling, the coolant temp reading on the scan tool reads 5 degrees F. My question is whether the ECM and the dash gauge utilize the same sensor/sending unit ?
