mechanic put in an upper portion manifold pipe where the flex pipe is, then he did spark plugs, wires whichinvolved taking the car literally apart to get to back plugs. When all said and done computer not reading right, throttle no power, he replaced throttle sensor, computer still reads throttle sensory and reading mass air flow, etc... Never had problem with this before, was this all caused by mechanic doing this work? how much is a computer going to run me to flash it at a dealer or if it has to be replaced, gas is not reading right either smells like too rich and car smells like burning when running now..
I have a new battery but if I don't start the car within 24 hours it is dead and starts with a jump. the car locks itself so could this be draining battery? Could I pull out a fuse to fix this problem? I do not leave any lights on, etc. I read someone pulls out the power connector fuse and that worked for them, should I try that? is there a power door lock fuse? Going nuts jumping the battery 3-4 times a week... It was only 15 hours the other day and I needed a jump
The car used to not start without a jump if left idle for 24-48 hours. It would start after that. I took battery out charged it, put it back in. This time when turning the key the lights on dash come on but then they go out when it should be cranking. All lights stay out until I disconnect/reconnect the battery and try to start over. There was a new computer put in vehicle a short time ago but that didn't help the car to start up without a jump. Battery, alternator, starter good.
