iauto8 :

For the p0130 code replace with updated F-O2 sensor. I would get O2 from mini to insure your getting updated one.

iauto8 :

 










1. Replace the front O2 sensor with updated part # XXXXX 78 0 872 674.


iauto8 :

Here are the test procedures for code p2404. Chris.....

iauto8 :

 










1. At the Leak Detection Pump (LDP), located behind the right rear wheel well trim, check for full manifold vacuum on the small vacuum line from the intake manifold wit the engine running.

2. Check the Red/White wire for battery voltage coming into the leak detection pump, and the Black/Green for battery voltage going out on the signal line to the engine control module.

3. Ground the Black/Red wire, listen for the click as the solenoid actuates and look for loss of the output voltage on the Black/Green wire as the piston actuated by the vacuum solenoid is pulled up against spring pressure.

4. Smoke-test the system - the only place smoke should come out is through the vent for the leak detection pump.
