engine warning light,? radiator sensor

Hi everyone,having trouble with my engine warning light coming on,told my dealer when it went in for a service and was told it was an ECU update needed,this was done but light came on again,took car back to dealer and now told it is a fault to do with a radiator sensor,apparently a common prob!.Was quoted 155 to rectify prob which involves splicing some wiring onto the sensor as it corodes aswell as the terminals on the sensor.
Has anyone else had this prob and found a cheaper fix,hopefully it sounds like it could be a DIY fix?
cheers Vin.
