The thermostat is on the left side of the engine,as is the temp. sending unit. You may need to remove the plastic side cover for access to both.
The thermostat is located in a housing which is attached to the radiator hose, i doubt that ,that is your problem since the temp. light comes on immediately upon start-up.
Faulty temp.sensor or controller.
You really need to wire everything back to stock first.
