Alright so i saved up 2000 dollars and bought the cobb stage 2 power pack and sf intake system tuned it to the stage two 91 octane map with the cobb accessport. car ran fine for two days. i took my friend for a ride to show him how it worked, i was pushin it pretty hard fifth gear about 135 mph and everything went down hill. my dash lights , ( oil light, cel, brake light, etc...) started flashing and i had no power at the pedal, i coasted to the shoulder and my car died. when i tried to start it up it acted like the battery was dead. i had to get it towed home i pulled the battery and the alternator and they both tested fine, when i go to start it it has enough power to turn the engine over about one time, then it wont do anything. it sound like a old tractor trying to start. im taking the starter in tomorrow to get it tested. does anybody know what could be causing this, any advice would be greatly appreciated! i need to get my baby back on the road. my car is a 2002 wrx by the way everything stock accept the down pipe exhaust and intake. thanks Daymon
How's your timing belt look? If you haven't figured it out yet, pop the Plastic cover off and take a look. You can even just pop off one side and then you should be able to see if it's loose or broke or even if it's alright.
I don't have to be mad to punch someone in the face!
it actually has six cels three of them deal with the o2 sensors, ( high and low voltages). P1590 is neutral position switch circuit high input. P1518 starter switch circuit low low imput. and P0500 vehicle speed sensor. im a newbie and really dont know what any of this means, but i do know that i didnt have any cels before this inccident happened. my timming belt turns out to be nice and tight and looks to be in perfect condition. got my starter checked and it turns out to be fine. im starting to think that i might have fried my ecu because of the way that my dash lights were flashing and most of the cels have to do with high and low voltages. im really at a stand still though
edit: just read that someone got that code and a few others due to the front 02 sensor, I find this strange, but it did the fix for him.
and found this too.
CETC P0500 VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR “A”
1. OUTLINE OF DIAGNOSIS
Judge as NG when outside of the judgment value.
Judge NG when the received data from ABSCM&H/U is abnormal vehicle speed, and the vehicle speed data
2. COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
Vehicle speed signals are taken in to the ABS control module and hydraulic control unit, and normal/erroneous
data of the ABS wheel speed sensor is received by CAN communication from the ABS control module
and hydraulic control unit.
Thanks blaze, and i did try going in and reseting the ecu, but when i went to instal the stock map the AP told me that i didnt have enough power for it to do it, which is really weird becasue i have had the battery checked more than once and it checks out fine.
