The car has acted like it had a dead battery for the last couple of months though charging or jump starting it didn't work. Last night we checked it again wondering if the battery could be bad and it started right up without a problem and runs fine. Though today I took it to Autozone because it was the first time the engine light illuminated. They came back with two codes P0702 which is Transaxle actuators lost power and P0108 which is Map or Maf sensors. Two minutes later we started the car and both codes had cleared the light was off. But when I got to autozone the "dinger" was sounding with the car off and the keys out, as if we left the headlights on or the key in the ignition. The Autozone employee pointed out that he could put the car in gear with no keys. After it was started and keys removed again it quit. The sensor we put in was a Valucraft/Coolant Temperature Sensor Part Number: SU1131VC from autozone and the connectors were clean and not corroded. Today the low coolant light was flashing along with the temp light, on the way home it was not, even though the coolant was full. The fan still didn't run unless the a/c was on. There was no miss in the engine today. My brother put the spark plugs in and I would have to ask him what he used. He is pretty knowledgeable about cars and even this one had him stumped.
