Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.

Bulbs are bad, most bulbs burn out around the same time withing a day or two and both of your brake lights may have gone bad. Try with the simple and inspect the bulb and replace if you see any discoloration to the glass on the bulb. Good luck and than you for using Fixya.

hi normally this refers to the sensor that is past the cat on the exhaust you sometimes have two sensors, one on the manifold connected to the engine, and one part the way down the exhaust after the catalytic converter, and the code will stay until it is cleared by a diagnostic meter..hope this helps

You may, but more likely not. Make sure that if you have a theftloc radio that you have the code before disconnecting the battery. I would disconnect the negative terminal. On a side note, if your only going to leave it for a month to 2, then it is really not necessary, the only drain on your battery will be the clock. I would be a little more concerned with the fuel, and for a couple months, it will still be ok. Much longer and a fuel stabilizer will be a good idea.

Passenger Side. Take off the wheel, reach straight in on the firewall side of the engine, about 6-8 inches past the harmonic balancer. should feel the plug and the bolt holding it into the side of the block. TAKE YOUR TIME. sometimes they break apart while removing and then you really have fun getting the rest of it out.

Please check the fan to ensure they are in good working condition.

A couple of time this happens and we blame it on the thermostat.

Also you can run a scan on the car.

hi, look under your bonnet then towards the windscreen end of the bonnet you will see a small plastic resevoir that sits on top of a cylinder with four thin mettle pipes coming of it this is the brake fluid resevoir it will say on top of the lid that you undo use only brake fluid or something to that effect.

Make sure you find the correct resevoir it will be at the back just under the windscreen under the bonnet ok.

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

Also if you have the owners manual then it will give you a picture in their of where the brake fluid top up resevoir is

you probably need a new thermostat, when they fail the new ones have a safety so they stay open to prevent overheating and cooking your motor.

low fluid.

Get the level checked and topped up, or have the fluid replaced.
