Default 2006 M6 temp sensor

I am in Island Park for a couple more days and have a code 7 temp sensor blinking. The sled ran perfect all day today. I am guessing it has a broken wire and that is why it flashing the code. It has to be that or it has out of range high resistance. I don't have an ohm meter to check it. I don't have a problem riding it the way it is but do not want to burn it down. Any one have any input.

Ran fine all day but has a little hesitation when it is cold.

Cold - They all did from what i remember , even when the temp sensor was working properly

With the engine running , grab the wire harness where it enters the sensor on the pipe and wiggle it around and see if you can get the light to cut out

You will not burn it down running a bad temp sensor on a 2006

After the light came on it has less hesitation when it is cold, but it is still there. I will check the wiring. I ordered a new GM sensor that guys on snow west say works. All you have to do is change the connector. $30 for the GM sensor $135 for the Cat one.

Put the new sensor in and it runs fine at sea level but still has the bog when cold at 7000 feet. Runs perfect once it is hot

I found this info in a HCS discussion about the 800 temp sensor problems. Someone had researched the resistance values through the temperature range and they were the same as the Cat sensor and the 600 and and 800 use the same sensor.
