    Welcome to Green Hulk.

    You should check all your cooling hoses,possibly remove the 3/4 inch hose to the exhaust pipe and flush water out through the back. There is a small screen at the jet pump exit that can get clogged.

    The temp sensor is bolted onto the exhaust manifold, make sure the sensor and wires are not touching metal anywhere. There is no "reset". It happens for a reason,when corrected it will work normal.

    No, removing them will not, especially at "high "temp.

    Check the Tan wire very closely

    Great to hear you found the problem.

    As K asked, could you please take a picture of the area where the problem was. It would help other people with the same problem.
    Thankyou.

    Say what?

    Was the washer under the screw touching the Tan terminals?

    Or was one of the Tan terminals bent over onto the screw?
