"service engine soon" light just went off....

hey guys i had the 'ses' light on for the longest time. i used the scanning tool and it said my 'thermostat jammed open'. all of a sudden the light went out after so long and is staying off.. does that mean that theres no longer a problem or should i still replace the thermostat just to be anal.?

Relatively common code. The light going off can mean that the thermo is no longer stuck. It will stick again though at some point so replaceing it is a good idea.
