Thanks for the feedback!
Front of engine on Driver side just above oil pan lower part of block.
Most easily reached from the underside, on the front side of the motor on the passenger side of the car. There are two retainer screws that hold a plastic cowling in pla…ce. If you can get the screws removed (they tend to easily rust in place) and then remove the cowling, everything is exposed and very easy to access.
i dont no try looking around where the oil filter is that may be it. That's funny, but I believe it is screwed right into your oil filter adapter. (Housing) So crawl under… her, locate the oil filter and you should see the wire for it. Disconnect the connector and unscrew the sender/switch/sensor. Ummm you may want to change your filter and oil while you are at it, oil will most likly spill out, so atleast have pan ready. Good Luck .
No, the system is computer controlled with relays.
Attached to the engine block inside the oil pan.
On a 5.7 V8 engine, the oil pressure sending unit is on the back of the engine block next to the distributor.
Screewed into the top of the engine block just behind the distributor
Near where the oil filter mates with the block and there is a port on the top of the block just behind the intake near the distributor.
at the top of oil filter housing.
A quick fix until you have about $300 to fix it is to turn the key to the ON position for 10 minutes, and when the theft system light stops blinking you can start it right up…. You can also just slowly turn the key to the on position (not accessory or start), shift the transmission into neutral (you have to step on the break first) and then start it. This won't work if you have tried to start it and the THEFT light is flashing, see the above answer. the quick fix is to just wait ten minutes for the theft deterant to cut off, the problem isn't realy the ignition but the system itself and its more like 600 hundred to fix at the dealership : Take all the other keys off your keyring, the weight of the other keys maybe causing the ignition key to be unreadable.also it depends on what is wrong with the system. if it the anti-theft system it may be very pricy, but if it is the ignition lock cylinder than it will cost you about $100 for the new lock cylinder and several hours of labor if you are very good at working with cars.
on top of the starter of front of your engine block
It is located under the hood, on the drivers side.. not far from the firewall. It is down in there a ways. No need to take about the console, as I just had one done. To replac…e the drive belt on this vehicle.. you have to take the bolts out of a side engine mount to get the old one out, and new one in. Terrible engineering , here. Never would buy one of these, again.
On the top of the motor, drivers side. Stand facing the motor on the drivers side , look straight down and there it is. It took me 30 minutes to find it. I hope this helps som…eone...
