can you help me? Do you have any idea what could be wrong?
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 2 months ago.

I highly doubt a rest is going to fix this. Most likely there is a wire that got damaged, a connector left off during the repair. Possibly associated with the electronic throttle body. We really need a scan tool to see which codes are stored. To do a reset you remove both battery cables, hold them together for 1 minute, then reconnect them 15 minutes later, and retry.

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
