Default After timing belt change

I just replaced my timing belt, tensioners and water pump.
Got everything back together and the car starts right up. But
I'm getting a PO113 code and the engine light stays on. Anyone have any ideas what would cause this. Thank you for your help.
Oh, its a 04, 2.4L non-turbo

P0113: Intake air (charge) temperature sensor input above the maximum acceptable voltage.

Was anything touched near the airfilter/throttle body? Check to see if the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor is till connected and inserted into the intake tube. It looks like this:



Also look for a small black tube from the top of the valve cover to the same area in the air intake. Make sure that's connected.

I don't think anything was touching that I know of. The IAT is
plugged in. There any chance that sensor has to be replaced?
I will check to see if all the hoses are hooked up. Would you
know why the engine light stays on?

OK, I've never heard of the IAT needing to be replaced except when someone takes it out and breaks the very delicate end off. The light stays on until the problem is fixed. To get it to go off yourself, take the negative battery cable off for about 5-10 minutes. that will clear the light and the computer memory. If the problem still exists, the light will come back on again.

Ok, on that IAT that little red tab wasn't pressed all the way
in to lock it. I used a OBDII to erase the code, and drove the
car for a good while and the codes did not come back. And
the engine light has not come back on either. So hopefully
everything is ok.
