  Yep, the one wire sensor is the one for the gauge (the PCM uses
the 2 wire). I had some trouble regarding the temp sensors at
Autozone myself. IIRC, they were calling one of them a "temperature
sensor" and the other one a "temperature switch" for some stupid
reason. I notice that Autozone calls a lot of their temperature
sensors "switches"; I have no idea why.

   Anyway, maybe have them look up a temperature sensor and also
a temperature switch. If all else fails, you should be able to
get one at a Dodge dealer. If I am interpreting Tenafly's site
correctly, the 2 wire sensor lists at about $42, but the 1 wire
lists at about $12.
