SOURCE: have code problems

Resetting the security code will not help the car start if you have a TPS (throttle position sensor) problem.
If the TPS is far enough out of position or has a faulty electrical connection then the proper voltage by the TPS cannot be read by the engine computer to thus calculate fuel mixture and spark timing.

Considering the rest of the DTC that you are seeing, it is highly suspect that you have a simple break in a wiring harness. Check your wiring and sheaths to all of your sensors up to and including any corrosion or breakage on the connectors, all the way back to the multi-connector on the computer.

The fuel pressure sounds too low. Is it multi-port injection? Check the fuel pressure against your specs for the car and engine. MPFI systems usually require 40-50 psi.

You should check for trouble codes. Use an OBD II code reader or scanner. Possible that a new coolant temperature sensor may cure it, but that's just a guess, just like guessing the Intake Air Temperature sensor might be the problem...Have the car scanned for trouble codes first.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

2002 trailblazer starts then dies immediately


Usually a stalling problem in hot weather is caused by an electrical part getting overheated such as a coil or a relay, or a fuel problem.
I doubt the O2 sensor would cause it to stall that quick. And if a sensor fails it should turn on the warning light.
You might want to have the computer scanned for codes even tho the light has not come on.
How many times do you have to start it before it keeps running ? Will it stay running if you open the throttle ?

93 chevy suburban v-8 tbi hard to start, but starts, will run but will not idle, can keep it running or driving as long as you rev engine constantly. Holding engine at half throttle it will slow and die. ...


Assuming your engine is in good mechanical condition, there are only a few options.

1. You may have a vacuum leak.
2. The pickup in the distributor may be worn to the point that it is sloppy at idle but normal at higher rpm.
3. Idle control valve/motor may not be working properly.

It probably isn't an ignition related problem as the problem would normally get worse as RPM increases. I've seen #2 about 5 times in the past year or 2 so it's not uncommon and would recommend replacing the entire distributor if you come to that conclusion, but would definitely check all vacuum hoses first.
