Good Day,

Code P0102 indicates MAF(Mass Air Flow) sensor circuit, low frequency detected

Code P0300 indicates Random Cylider miss fire, meaning missfire in more than one cylinder

The misfire could be a result of the mas air flow sensor being faulty.

Hope this helps for now

Let me know what size motor and if it's 2wd or 4wd and I can get detailed instructions for replacing

cORRECT. tHIS CODE DOES DEALs With emmissions. P1400 deals with the EGR valve. In case u are not aware, EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Re-circulation. What really this valve does is that it re-cycles some of the exhaust gases into the cylinder for combustion. The EGR valve might be blocked or has malfunctioned. It is advised that this valve changed or consult with a mechanic who is knowledgeable about this technology. a malfunctioned/dis-abled EGR system will cause the car to fail an emissions test, and may cause the EGR passages in the cylinder head and intake manifold to become blocked with carbon deposits, necessitating extensive engine disassembly for cleaning. So it is advised that u repair this ASAP

SOURCE: check engine light 2003 BMW 325i

both codes are for lean mixture ... bank one and bank two .....that usually means a vacuum leak in the air intake system ... there is a Y shapped boot off the throttle body that fails frequently .. look for a hole or tear or general deterioration ... there is a second boot after the MAF (mass air flow) sensor, that is another possibility ... any off the vacuum hoses you can see under the fancy cover plate could be leaking .. there is a "crank case breather diaphram" that can do the same ... you can test that by removing the oil filler cap slowly (running) ..there should be a sllight vacuum release ... if its a big vacuum whoosh and maybe engine stumbling then suspect the crank case breather diaphram ... finally you could have a bad MAF sensor but more likely the vacuum leak ... running with a lean mixture can eventually damage valves and valve seats ... i use a small rubber hose to my ear to find vacuum leaks (stethoscope) ...

2004 ford expedition eddie bauer All the doors won't lock/unlock, just make a buzzing sound repeatedly. Also does this when shutting the vehicle off.


What makes a buzzing sound , the door lock actuators ? Or where do you hear the buzzing coming from if not at the doors ?
Power Lock
The power lock/unlock feature requests all of the vehicle doors, including the liftgate, be locked or unlocked upon a customer request from any interior door lock switch in the vehicle. The power door locking system functions independently of ignition status or vehicle speed. When the vehicle security module receives an unlock/lock command from any door lock control switch, the vehicle security module will activate relays internal to the module to supply the correct power and grounds for the door lock actuators.

Need to change fuse on remote keyless entry but don't where it's located on fuse box on 2004 explorer


Do any doors lock/unlock with remote keyless entry ?
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter battery.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • Remote transmitter programming.
  • Aftermarket system.
  • High power devices.
  • TV/radio transmission towers.
  • Vehicle security module.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test C .
Pinpoint Test C: The Doors Do Not Lock/Unlock Using The Remote Transmitter
Normal Operation
Remote locking and unlocking of the doors is accomplished by the vehicle security module receiving a command message from the remote transmitter. The vehicle security module processes the command and sends a signal directly to the door lock actuators.
All remote transmitters must be present to begin diagnosis of the remote keyless entry (RKE) system.
Aftermarket or dealer-installed systems may adversely effect the RKE system operation. These systems should be disconnected before diagnosing any RKE concerns.

How to fix service engine soon light on 1999 ford f-150 truck with 4.6 engine


First thing that needs to be done is to scan the trucks computer using a scan tool that you can rent for free from your local autoparts store. The trouble code and definition that is retrieved from the scanner will help to let you know what is going on with the truck and what repairs will be needed to fix your truck.

2006 BMW 325i - Driving to work today, dash light up with seatbelt monitor, tire pressure monitor, and ABS goes out. HELP!


Is the battery original from the factory-replace it ?

If not -- test it

Test the Alternator after you confirm the battery
is capable of taking a charge & holding it

Then after the battery & alternator issues, if any-- are resolved,
check for codes again

Use a scan tool to retrieve all codes & write them down
BEFORE you ever disconnect the battery

How do you reset the security light on a 2005 chevy cobalt?


There is no reset , if security light is lit there is a problem with the anti-theft system .Should have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Could have 8 different B - codes
DTC B0685 DTC B2955 DTC B2960 DTC B3031 DTC B3033 DTC P1626 DTC P1630 DTC P1631
You would need a professional type scan tool to read these type codes , not an OBD 2 code reader .
