1 Answer


try disconnecting a battery cable then turn on the headlight switch, wait at least 30 seconds then turn off the headlight switch, now when you get ready to reconnect the battery cable do it quickly trying not to make it arch, the main computer is now reset, start the engine and check your systems that were giving you a problem, if the above procedure did not cure your trouble then the system will have to be reflashed by a dealer. there is a device that uses a 9 volt battery and is called a code saver that plugs into the power port or lighter depending on what port is hot with the key off, it also maintains the vehicles presents like in the radio, seats, mirrors etc. If you are going to be doing any electrical I would purchase one.
