So, I have a buddy who has the car listed above who recently had two codes pop up. One being an engine coolant temperature sensor and the other is a camshaft sensor. My buddy replaced the sensor and when to start it and is backfired. Come to find out he loosened all the intake manifold bolts but didn't remove any of them hence the backfire. Now I re-tightened the bolts back down and just making sure everything is in order. My buddy went to start the car and we saw something arc near the MAP sensor. He went to start it again and some went pop, and I saw little bit of smoke coming from the MAP sensor, checked it and found the contacts shot, so I just picked up the engine coolant temperature sensor and a MAP Sensor today so I can replace the ETC Sensor that threw a code. As well as I'm going to replace the MAP sensor too. During the time of my buddy trying to start his car after replacing the camshaft sensor, and after the Arc we saw, a dashboard warning light popped up that I haven't seen before. So, I need the fuse box diagrams for the car front and rear, as well and a list of all the warning lights on the dash with descriptions if at all possible?

That is strange, here are the fuse panel diagrams and a guide to help you check the fuses. Please upload an image of the warning light in question and we can go from there.

It indicates a malfunction in the electronic throttle system.

Thanks for the input WrenchTech. Let's run the codes to see if any come up for the throttle body or throttle position sensor. Also, I would try and clean the throttle body. this can help as well, once completed clear the codes:

Thanks Ken L, and WrenchTech. Well, here's what I got so far: No codes so far even though check engine light is on and flashes ten times and then stays on constant also I changed the MAP sensor out and the car wanted to start. Also, the warning light goes away after a little bit of time passes. But I ran into a whole other issue, Spark plugs are shot due to being flooded. And also, the spark plug wells from the two plugs (prior to pulling the plugs) had an excessive amount of oil in the wells. I'm yet to check the other four. But I know I have to pull the intake off to get 3 of them on the passenger side in order to 1. Soak up the oil and crank over the motor with no plugs (holes covered with rag to prevent a big oil mess all over the bay). Replace all plugs, (overdue) anyways. Re-bolt intake and reattach any parts removed prior to start up.

When the engine is cranking over how does it sound? Can you upload a short video so I can hear the engine, that way we can tell if it is hurt or not.
