    Thank you for responding. They are the following

    Air Intake Sensor


    and Temp Sensor

    Intake gasket seems good with no leaks

  • marc_shapiro May 19, 2009

    Eagle Vision TSI 3.5L

    When cold it runs very rough

    When warmed up it runs rough

    Either way it does stall.

    Once I pick up speed its ok.

    I found that my fuel injectors where not getting fuel. Fuel pump is ok and I have pressure.

    I have narrowed it down to my BCM, so how do I disable my VTSS?

  • marc_shapiro May 20, 2009

    Sorry, it was not the timing belt.

    Do you know how to disable the VTSS on the BCM?


    Where is the BCM located?.

  • marc_shapiro May 21, 2009

    I found the information on how to jump the VTSS. I even tried to unlocking the passenger door with the key. Do you have any other quick ideas before I try to take out the BCM.

    The reason is is looks like I might have to remove part of the dash board.

    Please let me know

  • marc_shapiro May 22, 2009

    Ok, I got the BCM out. It has 3 power harnesses.

    There is NOT wire. I found similiar notes on this.

    So no luck.

    The passenger side kick panel does not have a wire.

    I am going to check the drivers door harness and kick panel.

    I will keep you posted. If you find anything else out please let me know.

  • marc_shapiro May 22, 2009

    Yes I have. Still no luck.

    I swapped it out with another relay in the power distribution unit.

    I did an eletrical test in the injectors.

    They are not injecting :-).

    But every once and a while the car does get a good dose of gas.

    Is there something else to look at for the auto shutdown?.

    Thank You

  • marc_shapiro May 22, 2009

    No luck yet. Any other ideas would be welcome

    Thank You

    In review;

    I am getting spark, I am getting fuel pressure, after the car turns over (then dies) the injectors are getting juice. Then none. The fuel pressure value is ok.

    And yes I sprayed starter fluid in and the car RAN.

    But here is a question..

    Is the BCM and PCM the same as a 1996 Eagle Vision TSI 3.5 and a 2000 Chyrs Intrepid 3.5

    I think this an issue the VTSS?.

    First, what engine just to confirm & does it run o.k. down the highway? Stalling all the time, warm or cold, runs rough all the time?

BCM I believe on that should be behind glove box area. You'll have to remove knee guard from door to radio, to see it up under near glove box area, screws & brackets holding up there. As far as disabling it, a little google work or go on a forum, you may get info, but sounds like circuit board has to be modified with jumper wire or something. Have you tried unlocking passenger door with key(s) to see if that will disable security system?

    This is for a 94 Intrepid, I wonder if same applies? Just a thought, use at own risk !

    In the 1994 Dodge Intrepid,


    Located in the drivers door harness or in the

    drivers or passenger side kick panel area.

    Once Located, splice into this wire with

    a simular guage wire, and put it to

    a solid chassis ground. This terminates

    the alarm functions entirely.

EGR valve may be stuck closed allowing pinging . The Knock sensor can also go bad and not retard timing allowing pinging also . Heavy carbon buildup in the combustion chamber can increase compression causing pinging .

1996 Honda accord Stalling!!

I would replace the fuel filter, double check your work and make sure that all plug wires are securely connected and going to the right place (we all make mistakes sometimes) and check or replace the coil.

1996 honda accord rough idle and dies

Do the following

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Find the EGR valve. Look up on the internet what it looks like and where it is located for your car. There will be a vacuum hose attached to it. start the car when the engine is cold. when it gets to running temperature and starts to stall, pull the vacuum line off. If the EGR is bad, the car will keep running and idle will return to normal.

Took it to mechanic after it wont stay running he said it needs a crank shaft position sensor and egr valve. Where is the sensor and how do you replace it and how do you replace the egr valve.The mechanic...

what are the codes that made him think these two parts need replacing. The egr could cause a rough idle or stall, But it would need to be stuck open a little which may not set an egr code.

The crank sensor wouldnt cause a rough idle but the car could stall at times intermittantly.

What are you exact symptoms
