P0546 - Exhaust gas temperature switch shorted to 12V or open circuit
I first had the error code
P0544 - Exhaust gas temperature sensor faulty
Now after installing a new sensor, I get the p-0546 code.
The code come as soon as you put the key in. (with out starting the engine). How can this be happening? There is only one way to install a clip and the wires are intact.

I also put a lot of lock tight on the threads as well. Does the sensor ground its self when it is screwed into the exhaust? Just a thought.. it may not be touching metal to metal

Check the wire condition from the sensor clip to the other end where it joins the rest of the harness, if it touched the water box they could have melted, causing the short. Ask me how I know this.........
