Welcome to the Werkz.

Is there an electronic sensor mounted on or near the thermostat? Maybe its that playing up. Did the old Thermostat seem to be faulty before you changed it?

The same thing happened with me and the service engine soon light.

I replace the t stat, water pump, among a few other things...and the SES light stayed on. I'm thinking now that it's the coolant temp sensor on the side of the engine.

I'm not looking forward to replacing that one.
