If your car was running ok, then the alternator was at least providing charge. The fact you couldn't turn it on again after stopping suggests the battery was not holding any charge. So my initial guess would be battery (after eventually deciphering your question I realise you already tried replacing that) I'd suggest you do also look at the alternator as ...

sounds like the cylinder head became warped or cracked during the overheating. I'm not familiar with your car so it may be possible it's just the head gasket and not the actual head. Cylinder heads have "caverns" and ports to circulate coolant and oil throughout the head, but normally seperately. if they are mixing, something is very wrong. i would advise ...

If I am correct, the CMP signal is generated by the ICM, the engine doesn't actually have a cam position sensor. The ICM monitors the difference in voltages on the HT coils to work out which cylinders are on the compression cycle. This will explain why the CMP and CKP signals are shifting relative to each other. The synthesised CMP signal is sent to the ...

I would take a guess at a faulty ignition switch. The radio usually comes on with the ignition witch in position 1, but the ignition in position 2. The radio stopped working, then after turning the switch, the ignition stopped working.

For the no start you'll need to check wiring to the starter. You may or may not have an anti-theft module in your car. Is there a flashing security light when the key is in the on position? Is the battery fully charged? Here's how I would test the circuit, locate the starter relay. In your case it would be under the driver side dash. Pull the relay noting ...

You'll need about an 8" or 10" extension. Use the same 13mm socket as the bottom one. You'll also have to work blind, but it is (I believe) exactly opposite of the bottom one. Put the socket/extension up on the top side of the starter and find the bolt. It shouldn't be too difficult. Also, make sure all of your power is disconnected before you do it. Here is ...

My suggestion is that the filament inside of the bulb is loose. When you rap on it, it reconnect briefly, which lights the bulb. It will continue to do this until it completely burns out. This will probably require a replacement bulb to fix.

For something along this line would be a diagnostic service fee. When you take a vehicle in for regular maintenance and ask them to see if they notice anything they do not hook up any computers to pull codes and it's typically a visual check. Depending on the tech and if they use a lift some will check suspension but if it's a drive through oil drain area ...

This is typical of coolant being low in the radiator-engine. Let the engine cool overnight, then remove the radiator cap to see if you need to add some coolant. Depending on the type of radiator overflow system, checking the overflow bottle will not always reflect if the radiator is full, especially if there is a slow coolant leak somewhere. Check it at the ...

The starter relay would definitely be my next port of call. Note that it might not be a bad relay that is the issue. Since the relay serves as a bridge between a small "controller" circuit and the actual starter circuit, a couple of other possibilities do exist: an open circuit on the controller side, so either a bad ignition switch or physical break in ...

Yes this is a structural part of the vehicle and an integral part of the collision management. It's there for your protection and can significantly change the crash characteristics of the vehicle causing you or your passengers bodily injury. Also not replacing this can effect air bag timing, setting it off on too minor of a collision or not setting it off ...

I have the same car, I bought it new, I've had to replace the fuss/relay panel on the passenger side under the glove box twice... The internal hard wiring of the panel melts and burns at the power source for the fuel pump fuse...

Position your vehicle to aim your headlights against a wall so you can see where the headlights are pointing. There or torx screws located above each headlight inside the engine compartment as well as the sides. The torx size is a #15. Turn the screws in and out to adjust each headlamp independently of the other until they are positioned properly. Here ...
