  • This is a code for the Air Fuel Ratio sensor which is like an Oxygen Sensor but better. I would only use an OEM dealer part as the parts store aftermarket sensors, in my opinion, fail to often or don't work at all.

  • To replace it -
  1. Disconnect the battery.
  2. Look at the back of the engine, right up by the firewall, on the top /back of the engine.
  3. There on the exhaust manifold you will see the sensor.
  4. Unplug the connector.
  5. Put a deep socket on the sensor and twist the old one out.
  6. Reverse to complete job.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like your switches in your door need to be replaced,, most pry out easy and then unplug.
other than that, i would say perhps a relay is messed up. If you are not talking about the "drivers door" then you still could have a problem with the switches in the drivers door because "all"the windows are routed threw the drivers door switch pannel.. good luck! OH ya, most junk yards should have a cheep replacement....

This engine has two knock sensors, one for ecah cylinder bank, both are located under the intake manifold, the manifold has to be removed to get to the sensors.

It's neither. A battery drain or draw is caused by a device that is on that should not be on. Some common things that I have ran into in the past is the battery itself has an internal draw, glove box lights, vanity mirror lights, power mirror motors, trunk lights, power seat switches, and after market radios. You can visually check these to see if there on or off. Otherwise you'll need a higher eng volt meter cab able of reading amperage or a clamp style low amperage probe. You will remove the positive cable from the battery, set your volt meter to the 10amp scale, place the leads in the correct positions on the meter then place one lead on the positive battery terminal and one lead on the posits battery cable end. You should see less than .050 amps.if you see more than you have a draw. The fuses can be removed one at a time. Eventually you will see the draw go away. Focus on that circuit and you will find the problem in no time. It is important that everything in the car is shut off, key out of the ignition, doors closed, and any accessories plugged into the power outlets removed before hooking up the amp meter.

do you have automatic air and is there any knobs like on on the outter vents to shut the air flow off

Simply a weak battery would be the first logical assumption, then lose wires, or cables, after the the solenoid on the starter. If you have jumper cables see if you can jump start it hook up the positive or red cables to both battery's first then the negative. Pay close attention not to touch them together and not to hook them up backwards on one and correctly on the other you will damage your wiring system, battery, etc. Hope this helps.

You waterpump has gone bad. There is a "weep" hole, it's an early warning system before pump seizes up. Replace pump and refill w/new coolant and you'll be good to go.

First check that the child safety lock isn't on. There should be a lever near the door latch (on the door, not the door jamb).
