Unhappy Check Engine Light

My check engine light came on 2 days ago. I went to AutoZone and had them read the alert. They state that it stems from the engine temp sensor or sensory wires. Does this mean my temp. is currently reading incorrectly? Everything appears normal while I am driving it. Could my car be getting to hot and I don't know it? Please share your thoughts and thanks!

What were the actual Pxxxx codes from AutoZone? Saab uses a lot of proprietary error codes that match up to rather random ones from other manufacturers.

I've ran into codes like that quite a bit. The sure fire way to fix it is to replace the thermostat and the ECT sensor.
