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!

It's the 3.1. What should I be watching for as far as the intake?

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.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
