Drive Cycle resets to reset the OBDII testing phases are very specialized to the year, model and engine of your car. So I can only speak generally. Start the car from fully cold and let it idle for about 15 minutes, then put the car into gear and drive it for about 5 minutes at 35 mph, then get on a highway and drive at about 60 mph for 15 minutes, come off the highway and drive around 40 mph for 3 minutes, come to a complete stop (like a stop sign) wait 30 seconds, drive off again up to 40 mph for 4 minutes - and repeat the last 2 steps (going up to 40 mph) about 3-5 times. Then repeat the last two steps going up to only 25 mph. Then come to a complete stop in your driveway and let the car idle for 10 minutes with the a/c on . After this is done, hook up a code scanner and see if it reset the modes to "ready".
First thing is to check the brakes, especially the condition of the pads, and if you have worn right through them, the condition of the calipers, and finally the rotors. Sounds like one of these old the key.
In any case can you get back to us with the solution so that others can be helped in the future, thanks.
1.let car sit overnight. 2. Start engine, put A/C on high, let it idle for 20-25 minutes, 2, then drive car uninterrupted for 60mph for 10 minutes, 3. slow down to 25 mph for 4 minutes, come to a complete stop with foot on brake let it idle for 2 minutes, 4. drive again at 30 mph for 8 minutes, come to a complete stop let it idle with foot on brake for 3 minutes. 4. Drive at 40 mph (turn off overdrive) for 6 minutes. 5. Drive at 20mph for 3 minutes at a time, each time coming to a complete stop with foot on brake for 2 minutes. Do this 4 times. Let the car cool overnight and repeat entire process. Then check status of systems with a code scanner.
Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.
The speedo in electronic and can have various circuit board problems. I've had to cars with erratic speedos and in both cases the dealer said replace them and big buck bills. I found a shop that repairs them and charges $100 buck and free shipping back. About a 4 day turnaround.
no it does not; this is a massive short in the electrical system and, requires the services of an auto electrician like myself. take the car in to an ASE certified auto electrical shop and, stop spending money on temporary fixes the technicians can read the schematics and, fix your car right
