  • Thanks, let's get started.

Key in the run position is the theft light off or flashing rapid?

Key in the run position is the check engine light on?

Did you try cranking and starting in neutral?

No it is not normal for a repair to be done that indicated new converters are needed and the light came back on and has remained on after said repair. That means the incorrect repair was done, wrong parts were installed or there is another issue causing these codes making it look like even the new converters are faulty.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
