The 301 indicates cylinder 1 misfire and 300 is random misfire. The plugs for this vehicle are either NGK or Nippon Denso. If the misfire has not gone away then a compression test should be done on that cylinder(should be done on all cylinders, professionally, but for this purpose cylinder 1 is good, reading should be around or above 150 psi). If compression is good, test the injector for pulse and then it may have to be replaced if pulse is good. Let me know what esle you may need.

This will sound crazy but it has solved the problem more times than you would believe: give the dash board a and area around it a good wack with your fist. Often the connection to the light is what starts to fail not the bulb.

Check fuses for whatever doesn't work. Fuse box location and diagram should be in you owners manual. Make certain to note amps of EACH fuse and don't mix them up. The fuse that goes in MUST agree in amps with what fuse came out for each slot. Amps for each fuse should be stamped on fuse box next to each slot.

You don't need the code you need to read the code and cross reference it to a fault code list.
A code reader plugged in under dash will read the code and provide print out and the option to reset the codes..
The light is often triggered by a fouled air fuel mixture sensor or 02 sensor, also sometimes a loose gas cap or leaky exhaust near the catalytic converter

if you can get to the break in the line you can do this your self for under $15.
get a tube cutter and cut the bad section of line out next take that section to the part store and ask them for fuel injection hose This is for high pressure fuel line and will work great for you) and fuel ingection hose clamps. now just slide the hose over the line at least an inch and use two clamps on each side of the hose.start the car and make sure it didn't leak. if no kleaks make sure the line is not hanging down. if so then tie them up with zip ties and your all done.

hi, this is a common problem and the only way of solving it is by taking your car to your nearest main dealers and then get them to re-programe the keyless entry for you they should do this for free but this is the only way you can get this done due to the fact of crminals being ablt to re-programe their own remotes to open other peoples cars so thats why its only the main dealers that can do this.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It it sits for an extended period of time this could be due to bad gas (gas can go bad in as little as two weeks when left sitting); or it could be you have bad vale seals or other seals leaking slightly. This can only be determined by doing a good check out of the engine and systems.

If it only does it for a min or two after sitting then starting, I wouldn't worry too much. Alot depends on the age of the motor and how many miles you have.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at
