Default code p1486

My sisters cel came on yesterday and seems to be going on and off. So I went out to autozone to get the code checked and it said p1486 Thermostat Range/Performance Problem. The coolant level checked out to fine. Should I be replacing out the thermostat? I also reset the cel and it hasn't came back on yet.
