Here is the diagnostics information, see the top of pages 12 and 13 for the diagnostic menu structure. When you run codes, I am sure you have seen, PCM?, when you get to the end.
At that point you have the option of pressing the LO fan repeatedly to toggle through the following categories:
PCM CLEAR CODES?
hitting LO again will cycle you back to #1 PCM DATA again
You can see this at the top of the page 12 and 13, from left to right looping back to the beginning, print or download these pages to see them better.
Now, based on the diagnostic tree I gave you earlier in this thread, you want to observe PCM DATA at PARAMETER NUMBER PD04 - Engine Coolant Temperature and compare the readings to what is in the tree above.
When you see PCM DATA?, hit the HI fan button, and you will get into the PCM DATA parameters that range from PD01 through PD99, see page 12.
Once you are in PCM DATA, you will be in PD01, you want to get into PD04, so hit the LO FAN button again to toggle through the parameters till you get to PD04. In the chart you will note that the range is -40 to 151 degrees C. You can observe this parameter as the engine warms up, get into the parameter when the engine is cold and keep an eye on it, plus you can do the tests above.
By the way, this is the way you should delete codes, by going to #5 and clearing codes. Remember LO is NO, and HI is yes and OFF on the HVAC control will back you out of each menu. When you get back to PCM?, turn the key off.
Page 12 and Page 13 sit side by side in the manual and are a continuation of eachother,
Jan you may be aware of this but wet them down with a good penetrating solvent and then warm the engine up to about 125 degrees, it will help you to remove O2 sensors. Trying to remove O2 sensors on a cold engine is much harder.
Its not a big deal to unbolt that flange and drive a mile or less. You will know instantly if it's clogged. The first time you give it any gas, it will actually accelerate Plan on new bolts though. You wont need to drive long enough to get anything hot.
Yes I guess that is a connector in the middle picture, though I don't really understand. The wires from the top picture laid in the channel of that connector though I can't see any reason for a junction there. I also found the same on two orange wires now repaired. One of the 4 wires was not broken, so what is the point of that connector? Why would it be placed in the middle of a complete wire? I will check the passenger side now. I have in the past had water on that side and cleaned the sun roof drains and thought that was over. The drivers side was wet so must have gotten plugged again. I did get the passenger rear window to work without the seat connected FYI. Others not working though, the reason for the question. Tilt wheel not working either. Yes memory seats too. Off to work, I'll report back. thanks some more.
