Re: P0124 diag code - replaced teromstat?

Agreed. P0125 is low coolant temp indication which leads one to believe that the thermostat was stuck open.

The bill said P0124, but given your observation, it was probably a typo.

She also said they told her it cost $167 to read the code and reset the light.

I still think $344 is pretty steep for replacing a thermostat and coolant. My guy (ASE certified, full service shop) said he'd have done the work for about $120, Motorcraft thermostat & gasket included, including testing the cooling system for leaks. His oil/filter change would have been $22.
