hi this is jim, i'm here to help you out, it sounds like you have 2 trouble codes, first the eld code should be a p1298, eld stands for eletrical load detector, it watches the alternator and tells the ecm what eletrical load is needed, it is located in the underhood fuse box, very common failure, the other code sounds like 02 sensor one which is located in the exhaust manifold, the first sensor you see, also a very common failure, the dealer will the eld, its screws into the fuse box, the 02 is expensive, watch the aftermarket parts a lot of times they won't work right, any more questions let me know, thanks jim
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What is the estimated cost and why won't the car start will I need a new alternator & battery?
Expert:  Jim replied 2 years ago.
the eld is cheap about 30.00, the o2 sensor is about 225.00, what does it do when you try to start it, will it crank and not start or not crank at all and what led up to it not starting, let me know
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It was hard to start at 1st like a bad battery tried to boost it still won't start
Expert:  Jim replied 2 years ago.
