Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question
It is in failure management mode
what does that mean
There is a problem with the trans or engine or the wireless throttle body and the computer has shut the car down until it gets fixed
Need to pull codes and repair the codes to solve the concern.
pulled coeds got map sensor and mass air flow
what are the code numbers?
not sure a mechanic pulled them
What did the mechanic say about the codes?
did he try to fix it?
he just said it gave him mass air flow and map sensor,he put a fuel filter,air filter and changed oil and charged me 180.00 and its still the same he is lost on it
Wow need to find a different mechanic
Some times the mass air sensor gets dirty could try cleaning the two wires
really need the codes for a proper pinpoint test
yea should have got them for that price
i will try that i did mechanic work for 10 years but been out for awhile
go to autozone they will pull the codes for free
ok that sounds better
free is good
k when i get codes do i get back on here and give u the codes
yes that will work
Ill get you a pinpoint test
you have a voltmeter?
yes i have one
good let me know when you can
on the code
k our autozone is closed right now is there a way to talk with u again
Yes just re use this chat
k will it charge me again it will be later today
no it only charges when you hit the green accept button
ok so just leave this page open
yes leave it open and you can get back to me
ok will it hurt to drive it to autozone if it makes it
no that is why it is in safe mode to not hurt the engine
ok thank u and i will get back with u
have a great evening
i pulled the mass air will it hurt to clean with throttle body cleaner
use electrical cleaner
get it at a parts store
what two wires are you talking about
there should be two small wires in the middl of the sensor
here is a pics of a map sensor
ill get a pics of mass air if you want
i dont think i will need a pic of it
ok how does the map sensor work?
yea thats a good pic
ok let me knw on the codes
have a good evening im going to get some sleep i will get back with u and thank u
ok i got the codes and they are P0068 and P0106
both codes aer related to the map sensor.
make sure you have no vacuum leaks and the air cleaner and snorkel are attached properly.
If it is all good then replace the map sensor
well all of that looks good but now it wont start and it sounds like just the crank is spinning like the timing is that a possibility?
You have a timing chain and it usually does not break.
need to check for spark and fuel pressure
The computer controls the timing.
also pull the spark plugs and see if they are fuel fouled and if they are replace them
i put new plugs in it and i dont have a way to check fuel pressure could it still be the map sensor
If we are talking about the no start I would check for spark and fuel pressure. It is possible for a map sensor to cause a no start. Try unplugging the map sensor and see if it will start.
