Software update for false coolant sensor fault code on Honda Civic

On certain models the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) misinterprets data from the coolant sensor and sets a false Check Engine light (MIL). A software update from Honda is required for this repair.

changed ect sensor, did not work turned out that the culprit was the software update
Put a piece of black tape over light--goes out and on every other week--replaced thermostat and now it could be one of two sensors--another way for Honda to drain $$$ from the consumer!!!
