Warning Lights

Running Lean

Posted on Updated on

I was driving from Socorro to Rio Rancho yesterday, and the engine light illuminated.  I quickly stopped at an AutoZone to get the codes read.  As it turns out, both banks are running lean.  Because I had the throttle body replaced, I think it may have to do with the reprogramming that took place.

A little while later, closer to home, the missing fuel cap light came on.  I just put a new fuel cap on the car a week or so earlier, and it is in place and tightened.

I don’t know what is going on, but I think I will try having the fuel system cleaned and see if that fixes things.

Brake Module

Posted on

I occasionally have the brake light and ABS warning lights illuminated. I think it is the ABS module that needs to be replaced.

According to the internet, there are often cold solder joints in this module, and I will need to fix them. Realistically, I will find another one in a junk yard, replace it, and then repair one in my house while using the other one.
