Question about Cars & Trucks
I'm getting a computer error u0401 with by Holden barina 2008 the auto electrician said he does not know what this error is so take it to Holden. My problem is that I don't trust Holden as I've had this issue before and they are not being honest with me about what has happend. When I start the car the hold button comes on after I start driving rendering it unable to drive as an auto. Please advise me where to go to get help I can trust.

it means its due for service. If u wanna get rid of it without servicing the vehicle then as you start the car simultaneously push the ODOMETER reset button on the dash and it will wipe it. This will however just delay the point your car needs servicing.

If the car has a OBDII diagnostic port, sorry, there is no paper-clip jumper trick to flash the Check Engine light, or something like that.
If you want to be able to check it yourself, you'll need to get an OBDII reader. I'm assuming by the name of the vehicle that you are located in Australia, and that car markets are different than here in the USA, but I think you can still get access to these tools. In the States, we can pick one up and the local NAPA store for $80-200. Now, you may not be a mechanic, and need one of these day-to-day, but wouldn't it be nice to know what that code means before you take it to the shop? :)

There should be a cable that runs from the back of your speedometer to the transmission. If you look on the engines side of the firewall you should be able to track it....it is one of very few cables that run into the transmission. NOTE: its a little thicker than most. At the transmission there will be a fastener of some sort holding it in. Unscrew it and check the end of the cable. If all seems well try attaching a drill to that end and have a buddy look at the gage to see if it shows speed when the drill is running ...if not then its either broken in the middle somewhere or came unhooked from behind the guage....if it does show speed then it was either not seated correctly to the transmission or the plastic tip (looks like plastic gear) on the transmission side of the cable it worn down too far. That tip is interchangeable for if you get bigger/smaller tires.

check your thermostat first if it still moves you can usally pry open the ally tabs that hold the plastic tank on to the side of the rad, if its filthy or blocked i use a steam cleaner to blow it out. if it's a copper brass rad heat the solder and do as above.
