      From the scan below it appears to me either thermostat is bad, the wiring to it has a short, or both.

      Do you all agree?

      Well, no. "Open Circuit" is not "A Short".

      What does open circuit mean then? Do you agree that the thermostat could still be at fault?

      Open circuit is the opposite of a short.

      Probably a bad thermostat. You can verify if the heater is open with an ohmmeter.

      Hi,

      How do I use the ohmmeter to check if the heater is one / open. to see if the thermostat is bad or no.

      because I have been given the fault codes as follows:

      1. Map controlled Engine cooling thermostat ( F265) : open circuit. code : 17700

      2. Main Relay ( J271) : Electrical Malfunction. code : 17925

      3. Engine coolant temp. sensor ( G62) : implausible signal. code 165500

      I have gotten these, and I don't know if they are a simple repair of either replacing a sensor switch, or something that Isn't too expensive like major electrical repair. as I'm a uni student... sigh.

      Any help is much appreciated, I'm not a mechanic or electrician, So I just to know what parts they are in the car and ways to repair them or which part to get so it can help me keep the cost for the repair.
