when the ABS light stays on it means there is a fault present in the ABS system and the ABS has been disabled, as long as the light is on u just have regular brakes with no ABS, there are many thinbgs that can turn the light on, most common is one of the wheel speed sensors is defective, since these sensors are about $75-100 each and there are 4 of them guessing is a poor idea, so what u need to do is have the ABS systwem tested, there will be a fault code present to help narrow down the defective part or wiring.

check engine light on, code is p2004,

check engine light on, code is p2004, manifold runner or vac line leak. car runs fine can't pass emmission testing, where should we start to look first?

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 4 Answers

P2004 is intake manifold runner stuck open control bank 1. This code should be related to your EVAP system. Did you try resetting the ECM and then the light came back on? If so, did you look at the readiness status? After driving the car awhile different systems should have come out of default and one should have been listed "not complete". Which one was it?
Start by looking for pinched or broken vacuum lines, oil dip-stick not in place or oil fill-cap missing, maybe a missing or defective gas-cap. Anything further would take the use of special tools and a look at live data, to hopefully narrow this down. Good luck.

If you find the upper hose coming off the radiator and follow it back towards the engine block it will go into a plastic housing that is held to the engine by 3 10mm head screws. The thermostat is in that plastic housing.

  1. Remove the rear quarter window glass.
  1. Using a soft brush or vacuum, remove any dirt or foreign material from the pinch weld.
Installation
ani_caut.gif CAUTION: When installing urethane installed glass parts, the vehicle must not be driven until the urethane adhesive has cured. At temperatures above 21°C (70°F) and relative humidities above 50%, adequate cure time is typically 24 hours. (Refer to Essex drive away chart for the cure times as temperatures and humidity vary.) Inadequate or incorrect curing can adversely affect the retention of the quarter window glass.
  1. NOTE: Avoid scratching the pinch weld.
    Trim the remaining urethane adhesive. The urethane adhesive must be smooth and free of cuts and contamination after trimming. Avoid touching the urethane adhesive after preparation.

  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Wipe off the urethane glass prep immediately after each application because it flash dries.
    If installing a new rear quarter window glass, apply urethane glass prep twice around the glass surface to be urethaned.
  1. If installing a new rear quarter window glass, apply urethane glass primer to the same area that was prepped in the previous step. Allow 5 minutes to dry.
  1. Cut the urethane adhesive applicator tip to specification.
    a0016835.gif
