Sounds like the starter has worn out. The brushes could be worn out or it could have a dead spot in the armature.

you have a bad crank position sensor . it is located on the top left side of the transmission

It is computer controlled and any attempt to adjust will get you no where. Check the entire engine intake system for vacuum leaks. Use a can of carburetor cleaner and carefully spry it all over the intake and hoses, if you hit a leak the engine idle will change. You can also do this with a bottle of propane gas. DO NOT GET CARB SPARY ON THE CARS PAINT.

Could be a faulty connection with the battery cables, a bad ground, or any number of things. What do you have to do to get it started again ??

Guessing it's an SE. If 20A fuse 20 in the power distribution center is OK, pressing the horn switch closes the horn relay and the horn(s) should blow. If not, the horn(s), horn relay or horn switch could be defective. There's not much else that go go wrong

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

The horn should be behind the grille or on one of the fenders in the engine compartment. If you unplug it and the fuse does not blow I would say the horn is done.

is it connected?

Hi there:

That code means that sensor is reading high volttage. That doesn't mean the sensor is bad. It could be, or it could have shorted wiring between it and the pCM or the most likely is that the engine is running rich and the sensor is reading correctly.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

It still sounds like an alternator issue when the vehicle is running you should be showing 14.4 volts going into the battery try a load on the system while checking this means turn everything on the blower the lights 4-ways the A/C everything then see if the charging system can keep up

Under the driver side of dash, or in a relay box next to the battery, or on the opposite side of the engine compartment on the fender rail.

Have a mechanical test gauge hooked up to verify the oil pressure is within factory specs at idle, if it is replace the sending unit on the engine, if not you have a defective oil pump or worn engine bearings.

make sure the bleeder nipples are closed tightly. also check to make sure the bolt that connects the line to the caliper is seated on correctly and tight. also keep an eye on your brake fluid level. If there's no leaks anywhere you should almost never need to ad fluid.
