Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

ok good , lets try the master reset and let me know , i know that p0105 is a map sensor right of hand , but let me check others , be right back

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Okay
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

You have a p105 map sensor , p325 is knock sensor code, po335 this a crankshaft position sensor code , that will stop from starting , but it should spin over , p 400 & p 1400 are egr & vacuum related system codes .

Have all these codes been in it all this time , it cant be driving good that way , you need to run another scan and let see if same codes come back ?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I believe Its the same codes as before
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

ok did you do reset and no change ?

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

does the car turn over and no start or it doesn't spin over at all ?

do u have a security light on or flashing on dash ?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The car started
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

great , but we need to know what cause it , if you want ?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I need it to pass emissions
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

ok can you run me another scan now is your scanner available ?

what kind you have ?

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

was your led security flashing or on did you notice when it was not starting ?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I didn't notice, and I was using the scanner at advance auto parts
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I left because every time I go there it happens
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Service engine soon light is on
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Do you think one of the codes effects that?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

oh , if you want pass inspection I will help you, fix it but you have to do some testing for me

Do you have a test light ?

was this the first time you scan it and get the codes or its been that way for a while , and what can you tell me how is the car driving ?

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

we might have one problem causing the p400 & 1400

and one problem causing the p0325 , that is probably our no start condition

and p104 could also be sperat problems , but all these parts you can replace with some testing first if you willing to do it ?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Its been this way for awhile, And it drives fine
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

I think with few parts it can be fixed , if you say it is driving fine ?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Nothings wrong with the way it drives
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I don't have a test light
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

yes , any fuse that has a map sensor ,egr, evap, ckp , but if you testing all of them it would matter , can you do it now and let me know ?
