    Re: 2004 srx wiring question

    Its a 4.6L. I took it to another mechanic who attempted to connect the disconnected wiring but I believe he may have connected the wrong plug into the ECT Sensor as when I connect my scanner it reads -40 degrees. I cannot for the life of me feel for the temp sensor from the top of the engine. I am looking on the passenger side. I am sure there has to be a method of gaining access to it for replacement. The dash always reads cold so I am sure the pigtail in the pic goes to the temp sensor. Can you provide a direction how to find where the ground straps go?

    Thanks

    Sensor is on rear side of right cyl. head and grounds attach to head in same area, critical they be attached. You must have some DTCs. What are they?

    Just came back from dealership with a quote of 2.5hrs but not procedure. Anyone have any information or shortcuts? Should i drop the powertrain or remove the intake for access?

    Just remove the engine cover and you can get to it.
