I am curious what could have caused my 92 honda accord dx to have a catalytic converter become defected.I have an after market denso 02 sensor and a new timing belt.
It could be a catalytic converter. However, it could be an O2 sensor or other item. The Envoy seems to idle poorly in park, with the RPMs moving from 300-800. It is like it can't determine where to idle. It seems worse with the air conditioning running in hot weather. I had a cylinder 4 misfire that I fixed by replacing the boot/coil, but didn't get the P0420 until after that was fixed.
EVERY TIME I PUT A NEW FUSE INTO THE CIG LIGHTER COMPARMENT IT BLOWS THE FUSE AUTOMATICALLY I DID IT 3 TIMES AND IT JUS BLEW EVERY FUSE SOON AS I POP THE LIGHTER INTO IT CAN IT BE A ELECTRICAL PROBLEM

Emergency Brake light & ABS Brake light comes on when applying brake, then stays on. Took my '93 Ranger in for a Dianostic Test, which showed a Code 4. Received quote of $800 to replace the RABS valve.

Thinking the parts @ $490 high, I checked for the part online and am now confused. Are there 1 or 2 RABS on my truck? Also 2.5 hrs + $490 parts seems high. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help! emartin
I have a 2003 Maxima 6 speed, I just replaced the engine, at first I kept getting the p0335 code, but the car would take a long time to start but eventually it would start and run strong. I realized the reason for the code is I mixed up the sockets for the Crank Position with the O2 sensor. After correcting the crossing the car will now start right up but idle like hell for a few seconds and die, I tried pressing the accelerator and that doesn't help. I have an OBD2 scanner and I checked the readings from all the sensors and everything seems to be responding ok. Any ideas? I went through the, Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning Procedure for 2K2+ and the Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning Procedure for 2K2+ still with no luck, any suggestions on where to go from here? If I unplug the crank sensor it runs fine just takes a while to start.

Thanks everyone for your help.
