when your vehical throws a code and you replace the defective part, you must clear the code or the ecm will still recognize it as an active code.

SOURCE: fuel filter 2003 Montero Sport

drivers side, underneath the car. look at the line coming from the gas tank, and where the line gets bigger and has a metal cylinder in it, that is your fuel filter. a couple of clamps and you can change that thing out in a matter of minutes, and depending on your medel you may have to remove a metal plate to get to it.

It should be found at the bottom hose that goes to the bottom of the radiator and located towards the engine block. You should be able to see a plug and wires coming out of it.

SOURCE: need radio 'code' for 2000 montero sport with factory cd player

Hi Myzoom,

My name is Mike. I've been with the site for just short of two years. I volunteer to moderate postings for abuse, spam, that sort of thing. When I see a one thumb rating (the worst) it gets my attention, so I check them out.

There is a hypothetical situation I would like you to consider:

Two days ago at 3:00am, a crackhead broke into your car and stole the radio along with some paperwork he found in the glove box.

The next day he plugs it in and gets the 'code' message.

'I know', he thinks, 'I'll get the code from FixYa'! I've got the VIN from the papers I grabbed. Suckers...

He gets online and posts this:

"replaced dead battery in 2000 montero sport ltd. radio2_bing.gif now says 'code' and isn't usable at all. need the 'code' for my unit. it is the factory model of infiniti cd player2_bing.gif. my vin is: JA4MT41RXYP051225"

What do you do?

Now you may consider Kelly's response to your problem as not helpful or you just down rated him because it wasn't the answer you wanted to hear. The rating you gave by the way, is usually reserved for cases of abuse. It is an insult.

For reasons you have superbly demonstrated, not to many experts here provide answers that may cause the Asker to 'Shoot the messenger'.

Kelly provided the correct answer.

It was quoted verbatim from your vehicle manufacturers web site.

And without bothering to even comment, you down rate a person who 'volunteers' there time to help people.

The only abuse here is being shouldered by the person who tried to help you. Hopefully this was a mistake on your part. If so, it can be remedied.

Whether you choose to do so or not, the solution to your problem remains unchanged:

If we were ethically challenged and willing to provide ways to bypass anti-theft devices for the price of a good rating, there-by giving more value to any stolen goods, how long would it be before you really did wake up to the sound of breaking glass at 3:00am?

There is a reason the code feature is there.
There is a reason we don't provide ways around them.
There is a reason you need to contact the manufacturer.

For what it's worth.

Your check engine light is on because the computer picked up a problem with the vehicle. Take it to Autozone and they will scan it for free. They will let you know what is wrong and what parts you may need.

2003 ford explorer sport 4.0 and the chk engine light is on and the code reads lean on the left bank.. what can this be ? A vacuum leak maybe ? please help..

maybe a clogged fuel injector on that side. use a complete fuel system cleaner, like bg44k, sold at napa's. even stp works if you get the strong stuff. put it in a full tank & drive it out completly. should fix it.
