SOURCE: BAS/Esp light on with diagnostic symbol

Hi,
As you may know, modern automobiles (from the 1980's to present) have at least one computer controlling them. This computer (or computers) control the fuel to air mixture via either electronic fuel injection or a feedback carburetor. On the newer vehicles the computer also controls the ignition timing (That's when the spark plugs fire).
The newer a vehicle is,the more stuff the computer(s) control. The newest vehicles have the computer shifting the automatic transmission or transaxle as well as controlling spark and fuel mix. Many vehicles also have a climate control computer which controls the A/C and heat. Luxury cars often have vehicle anti-theft controlled by computer: some even will adjust the seat and steering wheel to suit different drivers when they enter the car!!!
The downside to all this "smarts" on a car is obvious: what happens when something breaks? The good thing is that the onboard computers themselves are very reliable. The problem is that the computers rely on a whole flock of sensors and wires to give them the data needed to make your car run. These sensors are not nearly as reliable as the computer itself, in fact they fail quite often!
This is where a "limp home mode" comes into play. Whenever the vehicle computer gets a reading from a sensor that is obviously wrong, it will "assume" a value that it "knows will work". On the earliest computer controlled cars with feedback carburetors, if the computer got bad readings from sensors, it would run the carb at the richest setting. You would get horrible gas mileage, but the car WOULD run. The computer would then turn on an amber "CHECK ENGINE" light. It would also store a trouble code in its memory telling what sensor was giving a "bogus" reading.
The newer computers are much more sophisticated, and just because a "CHECK ENGINE" light comes on doesn't really mean the computer is totally in a "limp home mode". Depending on what sensor reading is out of specs the computer may still be doing a pretty good job of controlling the engine. For example, some cars can have the "CHECK ENGINE" light come on if you don't tighten your gas cap tight enough after filling up!
On most vehicles the "CHECK ENGINE" light will go out if the sensor starts giving normal readings again, although some computers will make you use a scan tool to turn the light off.
This basically looks like the sensor to me, try getting that fixed for good.
Kindly let us know for any future assistance.
Thanks
Fame !

SOURCE: 1989 300e. The anti theft alarm went off while

This is the problem due to your anti theft alarm system. You have not mentioned which brand of anti-theft alarm system you have? Anyhow, most of the systems have a reset switch inside the kit, open the kit and on the main board, u will find the reset button, press that and hold for 5 sec, the system will be reset. Otherwise, there are 2 or 3 fuses with the wiring of kit, remove those fuses and ur engine will wake up but the anti-theft system wont work then, hope this will solve the problem

A fault with the brakes. Check and top up brake master cylinder if low on fluid. As the pads ware the fluid goes down and the light comes on. if the light goes out good. If not take it to brake repair shop to check out . Or brakes may fail.

2007 dodge durango p0123 and p0068


Code P0123-THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR 1 CIRCUIT HIGH and code P0068-MANIFOLD PRESSURE/THROTTLE POSITION CORRELATION. Without having the vehicle to properly test, and based on the information I have it sounds like your throttle position sensor has kicked the bucket. Replacing the sensor with a new one should solve your problem.

One of my driving lights went out after hitting a bump on a dirt road, how do I replace the bulb? It's not the headlight, it's the driving light or fog light.
