jack the car up saftely then take the wheels off .. then you will see the brake calipier turn the wheel towards you so the calipier is facing you . at the bottom of the calp you will see a small bolt at bottom undo this and lift prize the calp up then remove 1 pad the inside on where the piston is then put calp back down and put the bolt back in just to hold it in place then when you have done this put a large stronge screw driver in via hole in front to push the piston all the way back but make sure you do the evenly and piston goes in straight or it will get stuck same with all types of brakes. once you have done this reopen calp and take the other pad out clean all area with a wire brush and replace the new pads in place,, and retighten bolt etc , before you start the other side please make sure you pump brake peddle until it goes hard again. then do same to over side ,
hope this is a great help matdav69

I had the same problem, I went to my mechanic and they said that the system has shut itself off due to a problem the computer has seen, in my case it was a selinoid in the pump which released air had failed and had to be replaced, unfortonatly you can not buy the selinoid seperately and would have to replace the entire pump, I was lucky though because he has a spare pump that he pulled off another car which was blown but the selinoid was still good. It took them about 4 hours to find the problem but that was my experiance. DO NOT TAKE IT TO THE DEALER they will charge you for 4 new air bags and a new pump they quoted me almost 5000 Dollers and i got mine fixed for $500

Typcally caused by one of the front oxygen sensors or a bad ground associated with these sensors.Replace both front sensors with direct fit type NOT universal, because there may be a cracked wire and the universal sensor does not contain the complete wire harness. Direct fits, are about $20 more than universal fit type.
The O2 sensors have integrated heating elements that bring them up to the proper operating temperature. Code P0431 indicates that the O2 sensor on your driver side catalytic converter is not reaching the proper operating range. The O2 sensors are usually in the $150 range online.

Hold upper and lower arrows at same time for about 10 seconds to activate and deactivate jack mode. OR start driving car and it will automatically deactivate I believe when speeds are sensed above 5 mph.

I had this problem or at least a similar symptom. Check the wiring harness located behind left front tire for wear or brakes. I had a broken wire from the tire rubbing this harhess of wires. when I repaired it, I had all forward gears and reverse. To find the spot, Just look for a spot that the front outer edge of the tire could hit. Hope this helps.
