Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.

The ABS brake pressure modulator valve can fail internally causing the ABS light to illuminate.

The EGR tube may develop an engine vacuum leak causing the engine to run lean. The Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.
