When light is on, take it to some place like autozone, let them do a code reading, they will do this service for free, get back with us the the trouble code number, so we can help you. This way you know what's going on, so it don't damage another sensor.
Could be fuel or electrical related. Since you may not know the history, this may take a while.
Any amount of smoke from exhaust? White, Blue, Black?
Start with most obvious and inexpensive:
1. Fuel filer clogged (replace fuel filter).
2. Could be the ECM (Electronic Control Module). It controls the ignition spark timing.
A few other things... consider other expert solutions...
hot at all times: white/violet + light green/violet hot in acc or run: black/pink grounds: black/light green + black instrument illumination: light blue/red GEM module: gray/black LF speaker: orange/light green + light blue/white RF speaker: white/light blue + dark green/orange LR speaker: tan/yellow + gray/light blue RR speaker: orange/red + brown/pink cellular/telephone: tan this is for premium sound radio.
If the jerks that stole your radio forced the shifter back, the linkage to the transmission (cable) is probably screwed up, or the shifter too. I assume you had no trouble before this incident. Also check the trans fluid level (warm up car and check according to instructions in your owners manual), although I'm sure it's screwed up from the morons that stole the radio. sounds like a job for the dealer or a body shop. the cable is probably out of sync w/ the shifter. Do park or reverse, or low gears work?. You may be able to save a few $ by checking the auto junkyard for the parts you need. good luck! countrycurt0
