If the light's on for the same code , it wasn't diagnosed .WHAT was the SPECIFIC code? Coolant temp sensor out of range/poor performance? Give a # code EX. P0XXX.

I got a diagnostic @ Meineke the code is P0128/181 coolant thermostat stuck open,a new thermostat was put on,but the engine light is still on,why?

Because they tried to fix the code not diagnose the cause of the code. I know it says stuck open , but it's using a sensor and comparative values in a computer. maybe you got a bad thermostat or it's in backwards. Air pocket at sensor. Other reason engine is not warming up properly (which would HAVE to be the case if the thermostat was truly stuck open.
