There are grounds on the inside of both fenders, the grounds must attach to bare clean metal, if not then these problems will occur.

The Corolla has no ground on either fender. The drives side apron has 2 grounds and they are fine. The car started up and runs fine, not sure why it did not start. Checked enhanced DTCs and it says bank one lean condition??

Sorry never got an alert that you responded. Do you have the capability to look at the current fuel trims?

No . Maintanance required light stays on for about 10 seconds then goes out and the car runs fine... I did unhook battery for a time and charged the battery as it was low. It started after that and runs great just a maintenance required light on a for 10 seconds. Not sure what to think of that??
