Are you using factory wires? Some after market wires don't fit right on a lot of foreign vehicles.

Question Answered: what are code 302 and 204 and how much to repair them
March 01, 2012, 11:21 AM
P0302 is number 2 cylinder miss firing. P0204 is number 4 injector control circuit. The first thing i would do is have the plugs and ignition wires checked. Make sure a strong spark is coming out of each coil tower.
Question Answered: How can I bypass the security system .

This works sometimes on jeeps. Remove key,disconnect battery,turn key to the run position(not trying to start it) and then connect battery cable. If alarm goes off,remove cable and connect again. If you connect battery with out alarm going off,then it might start and stay running.
Question Answered: My truck burns like 3 to 4 quarts of oil before every oil change.

Are you doing mostly highway miles? My 95 Tahoe was burning a quart every 1,000 miles. You can try this,it worked for my truck and now it burns 1 quart every 2500 miles. 1 quart of lucas oil treatment and the rest with castrol oil. I use 10/30 castrol because i have high miles. It worked on some of my customers vehicles also and some said it didn't work. I don't know how it works,but lucas and castrol only worked for me.
Question Answered: Water pours into my trunk after opening after a heavy rain. How to repair this?
March 01, 2012, 07:55 AM
I looked it up and didn't see any bulletins about trunk leaks. Maybe it was in a rear collision accident at one time? The only possible way to find the leak is to have someone in trunk with a bright light and then use a garden hose to soak the car down. We tried this a few times and it didn't work for small leaks. When it rains it would leak but not with a garden hose. If you can find someone brave enough,someone in trunk while going through car wash. A bright light and maybe ware a rain coat because they will most likely get soaked. We never tried that yet:)
Question Answered: The milage is about 37,000 mile. How likely the break pad need to be replaced?

There no such thing as 100,000 miles pads. It all depends on how each person drives. City driving will be less than highway driving. 37,000 is about average for brake pads. As brakes wear,it's normal for fluid to go low. Did they show you the brakes or did they just mention it? I have some customers come in and someone tells them they need brakes,but there only half worn. A lot of people will try to up sell work because there slow. Maybe get another opinion from another garage.

Could be throttle body gasket. If you know a garage with a smoke machine,it will make it easier to find and save you some time and money.
Question Answered: Inherited '82 Lincoln Continental.Locking lug nut. How to get replacement key?

Do the locks stick out? What works sometimes is you take an impact socket that almost fit over the lock,hammer socket over lock nut and that will remove them sometimes with a breaker bar.
Question Answered: the location for the front drivers door curtesey light switch
February 29, 2012, 07:51 AM
If the switch is not on the door post next to the door hinges,then it's in the latch of the door. Remove door panel and some linkage and the latch it self. Sometimes you can reach in,unplug and turn switch to remove and replace. Most vehicles i remove latch because it's easier. I don't think i can post pictures,so here's a link to see what the switch looks like; http://www.hightec1.com/98-cont-switch/1998_switch.jpg
