Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.

 

You have been waiting an excessive amount on us techs to help you out, for that I am sorry. First off before I go into detail in an answer or an info request. I need to know, do you still need help? I realize you have been waiting a while and in some cases customers had to seek help elsewhere and or they solved the concern on there own. I and the website are sorry you had to wait, we do want to earn your business and have you log off with a great experience.



You are more than welcome to relist if you would like, do realize if you relist this will delay me replying to you even more. Also let me know your skill level so I can tailor my response to fit your needs. I work the evening shift, so that is when I will respond.



Thanks Chris.

Ok so i elced throttle body and sensor with another one I had. Ran TBA and actually heard it try to run it but still came up with error in block four. Fault code p1564 is what remains now. charging up battery to make sure thats not it.

Expert:  Wolfgang replied 10 months ago.
ok do this unplug the throttle body and perform 060 adaption then unhook the battery and touch both cables and hold for 2 minutes then key on engine off hook the positive cable first and then the negative cable. you will hear noises that is normal . then after noises stop then start the car. try to clear the codes if they do not clear then stop the engine key on engine off perform 060 again . let me know if it took.
