had to change out the battery and then the alternator and the car refuses to set the computer in the car it is very frustrating
Problems with throttle body car would crank but wouldn't stay idle had to make it relearn idle. Here's how to do this keep cranking it several times or more one hint about this do not pump the peddle keep foot off let computer do the work so it can learn the throttle position , just keep turning the key on then off all the way off and keep doing this till it crankup remember dont touch the peddle let it idle on its on.I am a auto tech,, Taken auto technology coarse now to get my ase certification
