HI,

Ok, do the following within 5 seconds

Turn key in ignition on-off-on-off-on, leaving it in the on position(position just before cranking). Now look at the digital odometer. Fault codes should scroll across as Pxxxx codes - P2152 for example

Do this and let me know the codes

HI,

Ok, that is for catalytic converter inefficiency. This will cause loss of power/acceleration if clogged.

It does come with a 8yr/80,000 mile Federal Emissions Warranty, so if you are under 80K miles, it will be covered

Hi,

I have a 2016 jeep patriot. I recently purchased a used factory replacement jeep radio. The jeep came with RES 130S radio in it, I am trying to swap out to an RHB 430N radio. I have researched very extensively and all the forums and the videos I have read andwatched tell me this should be a plug and play situations and it should work no problem. When I plug the new radio in the accessory lights begin to pulse as if the alarm is going off but with no noise horn noise and no exterior lights flashing. I can not get the replacement radio to even turn on to punch in the 4 digit security code. If I try to start the car it shuts off after about 4 seconds.. I have tried a variation of: Hooking up the radio with no battery … read more
