    Hey Sara, I don't know about how to check whether that's a problem or not, but I would imagine you could find a cheap replacement part if you were to look into a salvage yard of some sort. If you do need to replace the computer I'm sure you'd want to try and find one that didn't break the bank, so I was thinking that could be a good option. There are usually even websites for junk yards you can browse to get a feel for what the costs ar e.

Take it to another auto parts store-most will plug in and give you a diagnosis-advanced auto parts or auto zone are usually pretty good Cheers Denny ps be careful auto repair shops prey on women customers so second opinion for sure...

SOURCE: 2000 Honda Accord EGR Valve Error P0401

-after you change the part you have to reset/clear the code

-this can be done by either:
(1) using the OBD2 code reader that Autozone used OR since option 2 (below) is very quick
(2) disconnecting the battery for about 30 seconds (this will delete all codes/radio presets/etc) but it will also clear the 'check engine' code
-this is what I do AFTER i write down my radio station presets :)

-hopefully the new EGR valve resolves your issue after you CLEAR the code
...but that code just means a an insufficient amount of Exhaust Gas recirculation (pressure difference) used to keep the emissions in check
-if it comes back, then there are a few other fixes to try also

-let me know if you need further assistance
-please remember to rate me `fix-ya`if it works

SOURCE: How do you change a 2000 Jeep Cherokee alternator?

i did this, its a pain. First disconnect your battery. Then loosen the tension pully - there are two long screws on the top of your engine - they go thru something, i cant remember what, then use a screw driver to pry it back and pull the belt off your alternator. As for the alternator itself - you have to climb underneath the car to get it out, and there's not much room for hands - if i remember correctly there are 2 or 3 bolts on it. once your drop it down there is a strange wire clip you need to unplug. Call around for alternator prices, i was quoted from 169 to 305. If you got the dough take it in - of the 4 cars ive put alternators in this one was by far the worst.

your check engine light going on for a number of reasons

you need a scanner to read your minivan's computer code to direct you in which sensor had failed

if you don't have an obd2 scanner, a local autozone, advance auto parts store will check it FOR FREE

then, post your P#### if the local auto parts store person didn't tell you which sensor or wiring to look for

I just purchased a 2001 Chrysler voyager. Check engine light is on. Took to have diagnostics ran. Several for transmission. Drives fine except first gear. Wants to die and sputter. Also, bad speed sensor?...

Most likely on 2000 and newer vehicles specially if the van is still driveable it's the sensors. Get them replaced and if not working then it can be mechanical.

When the ECM is replaced you need to have it reprogrammed. It may run the engine for a bit but there are t many variables to keep it going. Some auto parts stores are doing this now. call around. Much cheaper than a dealer. If you had it reprogrammed then you need to check the codes. This will give a direction to go.

On these vans the light will stay on untill it is reset. You need a OBD 2 scanner to reset it. You can take it to the dealer and have them do it but they will probably charge you like $130. The best thing for you to do is check with an auto parts store. They normally have a scanner on hand and will turn it off for you free of charge. Advance and Autozone I know pretty much have a scanner at every store.

The cooling ventilator of my Grand Voyager keeps working even we switch of electricity. What to do?

The most common cause for this is the cooling fan relay. It is located behind the front bumper cover on the drivers side. It will be either bolted or riveted to the unibody. These are really common and should be in stock at your local auto parts store.

Battery light is on, power steering went out, 2000 Chrysler Grand

Yes, these vans are susceptible to taking in water. You may have an alternator full of water and it may be affecting the charge to the battery. Have an auto parts store test the alternator to see what it's output is.

As for the power steering, I don't know why the water would affect it.

If you go to the dealer, say nothing about the water puddle. I had a friend with a similar situation and the warranty would not cover the repair because they chose to drive into the water.

Check the engine oil dipstick for signs of water (bubbles). Sometimes the engine will **** water if they go to far underwater.
