Finally found the kid a car that might work. A couple of minor issues and some TLC are in order however. Both the anti lock brake light and air bag light are on. What are the possible causes?

Anti lock I know can be as simple as a dirty sensor, right?

ABS common problems are wheel speed sensors, Cracked exciter rings on the drive axles, corroded wiring/connections.

The air bag could be anything from a broken clock spring to a failed crash sensor. There where a couple of years that had an updated harness to the passenger airbag.

What engine? If its the 3.4 get rid of it! if its the 3.1 keep a close eye on the intake gasket. If not dealt with in a timely manner you can potentially ruin the motor!

Leaking coolant from the lower intake in the area under the throttle body and milky coolant. Typically the external leak leak will precede the internal leak. Once the coolant gets milky it ruins the main bearings. Typically that doesn't show up until after a few months have past but it will.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
