Those two parts are not directly related, but they are just a few inches from each other. You could have disturbed to wire for the switch while changing the spark plugs. The switch is located between #1 and #3 spark plugs and a couple of inches up. Check the wire to make sure it is functional, even pull it off and put it back on. If it is not the wire, then you can try replacing the unit. It's around $15 at a local parts store. Hope this helps! Please let me know how you made out. sincerely, John

Could be the the V6 or the V8 engine but, the ECT sensor should be next to the thermostat housing or on the drivers side of the engine between the back two spark plugs.
