Instead of timing belt I meant serpentine belt. My car is an automatic (1999 SL2). This is what was done yesterday morning to my car: Fuses under hood were checked. 1-30amp green fuse was replaced. 1-red fuse was replaced. Battery was disconnected for approx 5 mins. A few fuses in instrument panel junction block were replaced. I was told if I have this problem again to replace PCM1, PCM B & along that line. The fuel relay & hvac were switched.
Okay, yesterday afternoon the car STARTED! When I was told all seemed fixed/solved. However, my dad#2 & I wanted to run it to see. Well, the door chime worked automatically & never really has since my Dad#1 passed & I got the car. THEN, it did the same as before & wouldn't start. After, taking the key in & out a few times it started BUT when putting it in drive it died-it did it a couple times. After a lil more patience, it did start & stayed running! We took it probably 20 miles getting up to 60-70. So, far so good. In the last yr this car has been "through it"! Here goes, it was stolen-column destroyed-head lights were hard wiring-gear shift lock was broken-so the brake doesn't need to be pressed to get out of park-I started car w/a screw driver til about 2 months ago when I replaced the whole steering column-I had already ordered the column when I dropped my girls off at school and suddenly the car didn't want to go until I got up to about 40mph. I put some transmission fluid in. About 15 mins later, it died turning a corner w/gauges ticking, going crazy & car wouldn't start-column was replaced-my blinkers don't work, the guy said those wires had burned & were melted-he did give me a key w/column, which he says usually doesn't come w/a key-this key works BUT each time the key is turned back it HAS to be taken completely out of ignition and put back in order to work!
