Loss of power, power steering and brakes. If you are not mechanically incline then… Answer It means that a fault has been detected in the engine management system. The needle on my oil pressure gage always shows just above the half way mark. That refers to the circuit of the outside air temperature sensor. Started using only high test gas, but about three months later, engine light came back on and garage didn't know what the problem was. I am having the same issue, and I can't find the harness.
The current and failure mileages were approximately 79,000. Maximum speed was reduced to 5mph, before stalling out after 10 feet. Its crappy and I fully understand not wanting to waste money on diag but its is there for a reason, if for nothing more than to get the codes that are stored and then we can go from there on here. Vehicle systems reported electronic throttle module failure, electronic barking system failure, airbag system failure, vehicle sensor failure all simultaneously. Maximum speed was reduced to 5mph, before stalling out after 10 feet.
Third, the check engine light continuously comes on and off and when I get it checked, I am told something about the thermostat, but have had no problems with it overheating. The failure occurred every time the vehicle was driven. Replaced entire tcm which other dealers told me seldom if ever fails. I hope that was the issue, cause it is very scary to drive with that light on. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous for the failure and a diagnostic was performed that was unable to locate a failure. Still showing cylinder 6 misfire.
If in doubt as to your ability to perform the above, please contact a trusted, qualified technician. Ok, so I disconnected the sensors, re connected, checked all the fuses under the hood. He had me towed to dealership because he thinks it is part of the recall. All systems share the same 5 volt circuit into pcm. Yeah a flashing mil either indicates that your monitors have not run yet key on engine off for like 10 seconds it will flash for another couple seconds. The consumer was told the transmission was leaking, so the dealer replaced the o-ring and a bushing. The dealer replaced the solenoid and the harness, but the failure recurred.
This has also happened at complete stop. If it is angled, straighten it and that might fix it. Another tidbit of info is that it's not happening to her on her way to work, only on her way home, which is really friggin strange. Everything else seems to work accept the car is not in any gear. All the lights and radio was still on. Hopefully when I get home from work, i will try to locate the sending unit and replace it.
I had it checked out and I was told it is ok. When I call to let the mechanic know I am having the problem again, I am then told that neither they nor the dealership know what the problem is and to bring it back in. It moves the car forward then jerks it back really hard, like you're getting hit from behind. The check valve will only allow a slow fill using a manual grasp of the nozzle lever to restrict the flow to the smallest amount possible. Your comments would be appreciated Thanks in advance - Gord, January 2009 Answer: Hi Gord. While driving at a speed of 40 mph, the vehicle seemed as if it would shift gears on its owns.
Generally this is an emission problem, it could be something as simple as your fuel cap is not on or it could be much more costly such as an O2 sensor. At worst it could be the electronic management system itself, but try everything else before condemning it. This happens 2 to 3 times a week. I would have to put the car in park and turn off the vehicle, wait a few seconds then restart the car. They worked on it till it ran good, but engine light still on.
I have to coast off to the side of the road. But honestly since they've already looked at it and are willing to give you a discount on the repair, I say let them do it! July 8, 2015: mileage 12,453 car dash lights were lighting up and then the engine died later in the middle of the road. I d id not even know the engine was off until I tried to turn and had no power steering or brakes. If the engine is running, the scanner may not be able to read all trouble codes. A P0455 code is Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected no purge flow or large leak , a P0303 code is Misfire Detected Cylinder 3. Second, upon starting my car, it will just stall or shut down.
