All of the following are approved methods for diagnosing an ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor EXCEPT ________.
A) Substituting a variable resistor
B) Scan tool
C) Observing resistance values at a specified temperature
A P0118 DTC is being discussed.  Technician A says that the ECT sensor could be shorted internally.  Technician B says the signal wire could be open. Which technician is correct?
A) Technician A only
B) Technician B only
When testing the ECT sensor with the connector disconnected, the technician should select what position on the DMM?
