Owner: If the airflow volume is good, and there is no odor problem, you do not have to clean the evaporator. Evaporator cleaning is more often needed when pets are in the vehicle, or if it is operated in very dusty conditions, or if an odor is noticed.
Owner: Does the keyless entry work ? If you are using the vehicle without using the key fob to lock and unlock the doors, the security lamp will remain illuminated after starting the vehicle. This is the most likely cause, there are other failures which can cause this symptom.
Owner: Researched this issue, Possibilities are endless, but these are the most common, missing camshaft timing actuator screens, & PCM failures.
Yes Sir; That price is actually within reason, the part lists for $272.61, ( which may have changed ), and the labor guide says 2.4 hours, which should be approx. $200.00, ( depending on their labor rate ), plus sales tax.
Labor is $178.80, which includes a Diagnostic, in order to confirm the fault, & a New Throttle Body Assembly w/gasket is $486.31, for a total of $604.67, with a nationwide two year, 24,000 mile warranty.
I can mail you a diagram, need address, Thank You, Garvin @ Wrays Auto Service, Inc.
