Hey folks! :) not posted in ages but just recently turned on my 06 civ to find the engine warning light on constantly for about a week now.

My friend has managed to get the error code from my car and it says it's the ECT sensor 2.

Does anyone know what the easiest way to access the sensor is? Its going up on the ramp on saturday and thought someone might know the easiest way to access sensor 2.

Any advice would be great .. Really don't want to have to put it into Honda n face paying over a grand!!

Oh and one other thing, at New Year there i skidded (slowly) into a bus and had no visible damage other than the bumper casing popped a wee bit from the front headlamp.. up until now i'd not thought anything of it but does anyone think the wee bump may have loosened the ECT sensor and that might be why i'm having problems??

Thanks in advance :)

Welcome back ;) first of all the ECT sensor 2 translates to 'Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 2' - the '2' part I don't understand but i'm sure there's some nice people on here that could answer that. Come to think of it, I don't actually know where the sensor in question is located on the 1.8 :confused: a great help I was!

haha at least u replied..thanks ;) As for the '2' in ECT 2 it is for Sensor number 2 as theres two sensors and number 1 is at the top and pretty easily located from above. Unfortunately its rarely number 1 that goes (how convenient?) and I'm thinking the cost involved with the loom and replacing of sensor 2 probably has to do with where its located.. Hopefully my mechanic friend will work his magic on saturday n it'll be fine =D

If however the person that posted in another thread about greasing up sensor 2 with lithium grease to stop it corroding is around maybe they could give a tip on how to get to it..?
