If any one has any ideas or any test that should looked into performing, any help would be apriciated
I've to count to 14 before starting and then it kicks off first time. i've been talking to everyone but the pope and no ideas. Might as well try the dme!! Where is it located, and what does it look like??
the dme is just a name for the ecm or ecu what ever you prefer,it looks like most units just type dme on goolge and youll get an idea, on my car its located under the right side cabin filter,i dont know what kind you got so cant say where its located,if you give me a year and model i can find out or google it
