Sorry to many code similar to the one you gave me even if i try to guess the missing number the results may turn to be wrong and inaccurate, i will rather wait for you to get the correct code and continue from there. there are 3 to 4 symptoms that match the problem but i will also need to match the code. please rescan or get the right code and if you will like to continue with me let me know what the code is.
