What I do is park the car uphill. Let it cool, open the cap, start it, and let it warm up until coolant flows in the radiator. Add coolant and let the air burp out until there is good flow with no bubbles coming up.

disconnect the battery and connect it all up and leave battery off overnight. Put the key in the ignition but not turned on. Connect the battery in one bang, wait 15 minutes for the transponder chips in key and ignition lock to be paired by the ECM.

these cars suffer from one problem and that is the computer ,as the O2 sensor heaters run the earth back through a transistor switch in the ECU ,so what i do is run a seperate earth from O2 sensor heater side to chassis or engine this cures the fault so vehicles passes the emmisions but the engine light will stay on .on the O2 sensor are two white wires these are the heater wires ,one will read a positive but no earth continuety ,run a earth and it will work .

The chime usually goes with the door latch. What did you replace? You may have not got the electrical plug seated or a lead has pushed out.

You can use one of the plugs that go into the power point/cigarette lighter. Cut the end off add wire to reach a good 12 volt battery. Plug it in. This should give you power to open the boot with the switch.

u can install a disconnect but when u disconnect the power it clears all settings in vehicle such as radio will have to enter code so anti-theft lock out doesnt occur or have to reset from loc to normal -memory seats -emissions reset which means that problems for inspection if vehicle doesnt cycle thru before one is done -have battery and alternator tested most auto stores do this for free -- if problem only happens during rain check connections around battery/alternator/and fuses for loose or connections that are getting wet

You need to contact the dealer on this, we have no wiring diagrams available.

Did this just happen and was it working previously?

Radio codes are normally dependent upon the serial number of the radio. You obtain the serial number off the radio and contact the dealer and they can give you the code once you verify that you are indeed the proper owner of the radio.

p0420 and p0430 are codes for bank a and bank b catalyst efficiency below threshold. there are 2 sensors on each bank. you dont say if its a v6 or a v8, if its a v6 they are easy to get at from the underside. one has a green connector the other blue, both sides the same, and screw into the exhaust one before cat one after, if its a v8 there not so easy. the connectors are at the back of the cylinder heads one grey one black. my advise would to get it on to some diagnostic equipment to monitor live data to identify the culprit, you dont get both sides going down together. from my experience with these cars if one bank of cylinders has a emission related problem the ecu uses the other bank to compensate which can confuse diagnostics. also one of or both catalysts may be faulty
