P0153 - sensor bank 1 and sensor bank 2 with slow response; I had the engine installed on 5/2/12 - P0131 another time; then a P0300
They are saying now that it needs a new harness and rewired. -p0133, P0174 and P0172 They are saying the cost is $2,060.05...
I am not trusting them at this point
I took it straight to a dealer that are authorized to service zuzuki; no they ae saying that the harness needs to replaced and then rewired to the engine part ...they said the wiring is worn.
I told them that it should have been checked the first time they installed the new engine. What actually should be done when you install a new engine?
These are some excellent questions. I have a strong feeling that the engine was not replaced back into my car and it has caused this problem. I just tried to call the dealership and ask them these questions but he did not answer.
I am going to go to the dealership now along with your questions and will get back to you....I do have a 3 year warranty of the new engine. However, do you believe that the harness wiring should be a part of this warranty? Which means I do not owe them anything. They are asking for another $2,060.00 for the harness!!
only if the wiring harness was not put back where it belongs and that caused the wiring to be damaged,melted or brokenusually most harnesses can be fixed instead of just replacing the complete engine harnessit comes down to how many wires are broken and where they are brokenits going to be hard to get them to warranty this unless they say the wires where damaged from us.probably not going to happenBUT i would find out what wires and go to another shop that will repair the wires broken or damaged without replacing the complete engine harness
I will definitely accept and respect your expertise and follow-through.
I have one more question. Can the harness be an issue and still give you a code that the engine needed be replaced? Because, now I am questioning their honesty about the engine.
My car will need to pass emissions by July 29th!
Again a great question ...I am going their now to see what the code was to say that it needed a new engine
