Hi Folks. Previously my partner had the same year & model & though we're in Vermont where cars rust to bits, we got lucky enough to find another which came here from CA. & got well treated before rust could set in. We're very happy with it but for several things: 1 - The dome light doesn't come on at all; 2 - It throws an evap code every so often; 3 - It has the central locking system & the alarm stickers - but came with no remote(s). I'm guessing it uses the same ones as the other '98 did as it has no button near the OBD plug - and we have good remotes left over from when the other car went for parts. They are the Alps 88036ae060 & look like the pic here: image ?? But, when trying to get the car into programming mode it is 100% unresponsive - leading me to think that system was disconnected or is otherwise messed up. I tried the programming steps from the couple of different alarm types I found & none of it made any difference. Since the alarm must also use door switches I'm guessing these may be related somehow... In my searching I've read a bunch of stuff about fuses & different systems & I remain uncertain of how to proceed. I will appreciate any guidance in these matters very much !!
I am completely lost... went to Advance and had it put on the computer and was told it was an O2 sensor, changed, pulling out and push the gas and pull out at 5mph regardless of how much gas I give it. Suspected throttle position sensor since Advance now says they can't check the codes cause it wasn't hooking up. We buy our own code machine and check again and get that the knock sensor needs changed, husband tries to drive it to see if the TPS is fixed and AWD locks down and there's a clicking noise he feels is the acuator now. This just seems like a total spiral to the death of this car and it's just under 150,000 miles! HELP!!!
