My sister shipped her car to a forgein country and they can't figure out what parts need to be replaced. The car just won't start. She says it basically feels like it's out of gas whenever she tries to start it. Even on a full gas tank. The codes she gets are:
P0051
P0505
P0158
P0455.

Any clues? I've looked up what the codes mean, but the mechanic doesn't know what needs to be replaced.

P0505 Idle Control System Malfunction
P0158 Oxygen Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank 2 Sensor 2)
P0455 Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (gross leak)

None of these codes will prevent the engine from starting. Also, fault codes never say to replace parts. They only indicate the circuit or system that needs further diagnosis.

If the engine runs normally for about two seconds, then stalls, it is in theft mode. Unlock the front doors with the key or use the remote key fob to turn the system off.
