Check engine light on after radiator install....HELP!

I installed a new eom radiator,and a new thermostat in my 99 to tonight and after refilling, checking for leaks I noticed that my check engine light is now on. Anyone have the same issue or know what it might be??

Yeah, I'm going to bring it by my local auto parts store to get the code this morning but was just trying to see if it might be something easy last night.

I assume you are talking about the thermostat sensor, which is the only wiring I had to unplug to change the thermostat, and yes I hooked that back up. I even unplugged it and plugged it back in to be sure it was making a good connection.

You can check without a scanner. Btw..why is the dash in the video different from my '98...? Or is that just a skin?
