    is your coolant full or low?
    and is the censor good?

    did you pull the CEL already?

    could the code be coming on if i don't have the right wires going into the sensor for the cooling fan? and what are the color of the wires that go to that sensor?

    so you have both codes 6 AND 17?

    time for you to do some testing of the electrical components in questions...

    no idea on what colors the wires are

    get a helms manual... it will have color coded wire diagrams and instructions on how to test your possibly faulty sensors...
