It would appear that the relay is misfunctioning. Try swapping one from nearby and when your car won't start but your seats operate then you'll know what to do. THanks, Dana

Make sure you have one. Its on the left in the trunk. Load 1-6 cd's in it and then, with the radio on, select CD on the dash

Given what you have said & the metal shavings

I would pull it & rebuild it

Not worth diagnosing the PO741 TCC issue as long as there
is metal, it is thru out the entire unit.

Nothing special about that trans because it is in a euro car

They use Gm Trans & the US Mfg uses Euro, across some vehicle lines & models

Probably the battery in the remote. Would check that first. Let me know if that works before getting deeper into it.

Your friend is on a fishing trip

If you have no factory diagnostic manuals &
trouble charts to follow you don't know the system
you trying to fix

If you have a smoke machine it would be good to get some
practice with it for an Evap issue & codes

What is happening is that person does not know that codes
do not tell you what is wrong or what to replace,you have to
component test for that

A code is just a sensor reporting a fault,not always a failed
sensor

You have to find out why the fault occurred & do not always
need a part replaced
