1 to 2 years old

Ok, then that should be fine. I was just thinking if it was 4--5 years old, but you did check cables..Hmmmm... I think the next step is an OBD scan....eliminate guesswork and buying parts you don't need. Many parts houses will scan it free, but be careful, don't buy electrical parts that can't be returned. Bring the codes back here, and one of us will be happy to help from there. The parts guys want to sell you anything they can..and granted, some of them know what they're doing...but some know jack. Or drop me a PM
