You’ll need to get the error code read first, but I’d hazard a guess that the SRS system is holding the fault code permanently till cleared, or there is a subsequent fault.

There isn’t in general a starter fuse. If you get nothing when you turn the key and the immobiliser is working correctly, it’s likely to be either a dead starter motor or loose connection.

P0301 indicates that cylinder number 1 is experiencing misfires. A misfire occurs when an insufficient amount of fuel is burning in a cylinder. ... A misfire from one or more cylinders can be caused by many reasons from a faulty ignition system, fuel system or internal engine failure. I would start with replacing the plugs and wires, then coils if the misfire is still there.

its probably not the lighter itself, it's probably lost power. check the fuse for the cig lighter and see if blown. if it is, replace. if it blows immediately you have a dead short. if not, pay attention to when it stops working. could be a problem with whatever you are plugging in, or something else on the circuit

First, they're not called freeze plugs. They're called core plugs. Their entire purpose in life is so the factory can wash out the casting sand after the engine is cast. They have nothing to do with freezing. The block can easily crack way before the plugs pop out. But to answer your question, you'll find them on the lower portion of the block, usually below the exhaust manifold and a few in the cylinder head.

Code 300 means you have a random miss that is not serious enough to pick one cylinder. The computer measures RPM on each cylinder as the plug fires. So it is not that a cylinder is not firing but rather that it is not producing enough power.
Other causes are vac leaks and lack of fuel.

Wobbly steering could be bad ball joints, bad tie rods, loose lug bolts on the wheels, etc.......You need to find what is not right or take it in to a mechanic for a diagnosis.

The pump will always increase the pressure 65 psi above the inlet pressure, so if your inlet pressure is 30 psi, the outlet will reach 95 psi. This pump doesn't turn off due to pressure, it turns off when the flow through the pump stops. To make your pump turn off at a lower pressure, install a pressure switch ($20) somewhere in your system. Call the Grundfos tech rep and he will most likely agree this is an acceptable fix.

sounds like an OBD2 comm failure, mine (i have 10) all show comm loss. but.. can be blown fuses killing OBD2 DLC pin 16 (not 12v)
also, of your car is newer and the scan tool is older, it can fail.
newer scan tools work on all cars here. in usa. all, obd2 1996 and newer. (i build oBD2 gauges and can go endless here... comms...)

no Pxxxx code?
what scanner?, there are many. some are junk.
is this a USA car, when posting nobody knows,
in fact, cars up to 2006 world wide, don't have OBD2 ECUs/PCMs.
not posting where car was 1st sold , is a failure.
if you are in usa, we can access the online FSM and look this up.
we use.

lets back up. (a real scan tool not a funky useless code reader)
you, make sure pin 16 is hot.
you plug in scan tool (newer) if car has CAN buss? the tool too must be CAN BUSS CERTIFIED.?
you key on. not started.
you push the scan button, no comm fails, you see TPS throttle angle.
and ECT engine temp and air temp and RPM is 0
all that not started enigne yet, if you cant get there, wrong car, wrong tool.
if the engine runs, the tool must scan, if not pin 16 dead.
or wrong scan tool.
