The VIN is stored within the OBD-II system. This is what the dongle is reading. If the PCM was ever replaced, the VIN may not have been stored correctly in the new (to the car) PCM. Any shop which does aftermarket tunes can check and put the correct VIN back into it. Then your insurance fob will be reading without the mismatch.

It's probably the terrible stock speakers. Upgrade your speakers or put in a subwoofer if you want bass.

When you first turn your vehicle on, the vehicle itself does a "Power On Self Test" or POST. When you turn your key from off to the run position (before you start it up), all of the dash lights which are usable will light up. You should get used to which ones light up and keep those in the back of your memory. If a bulb should go out, you'll notice the ...

Three separate areas which the codes are pointing to. Let's run them down one by one ... P1000 On Board Diagnostics II (OBDII) Monitor/Driver Cycle Test Not Complete Causes are - The battery or PCM has been disconnected (Ford,Mazda) The diagnostic trouble codes have been cleared (Ford,Mazda) An OBD monitor concern occured before completion of ...

Yes, it's technically possible. but in general it requires you or an electrician to make up custom wiring harnesses. In other words: you can't just install the head unit and expect it to work. That would be too simple. Real men have to suffer before they're allowed to enjoy something. The good news is that Parrot thought of this and offers the UNIKA ...

I do a fair bit of ICE (although mostly European and Japanese cars) and from my experience, unless one of the aftermarket providers has built an adapter you are usually out of luck. There are just too many different standards (or lack of them) for how steering wheel controls talk to head units. That said - replacements are often very cheap, or you can often ...

I have two solutions for you, depending on your skill level. The first is using a zener diode to turn on the relay once the voltage is above 12.6 volts. This will energize the relay anytime the battery voltage is above 12.6 volts. You could go as high as 13 volts, but that might turn the relay off under high electrical loads with the engine running. The 12 ...

The problems you are experiencing will have nothing to do with the transmission. Here is what the code explanation is. My feeling is it's with the Fuel pump driver module. It may be going bad. Code: P1233 - Fuel System Disabled or Offline Description: The PCM monitors the fuel pump monitor (FPM) circuit from the fuel pump driver module (FPDM). With ...

Did you check the voltage at the battery when this is going on? If not, pull out a multi-meter and see what the voltage is at the battery. It should read somewhere between 13-14vdc. Do this directly at your battery posts and not off on some other ground/power source. If your charging looks good, the issue, I think would point at the gauge being the issue. It ...
