    Battery power (voltage) level drops below level to crank engine

    That 14V is a bit unusual, but not impossible. In fact, 13.6V is pretty common for a battery that has been freshly charged, before any load has been applied. Just a bit of load/discharge brings the charge right back to the theoretical 12.6V. Note that 12.6V is "nominal" at a specific...

    Project car, sn95 body, engine seized

    I will start looking for one, but doubt I will find one for that specific M/M/Y. It will probably have to come off a Ford 5.0L from another application, in a nearby year. Get prepared to provide data like pulley OD, shaft bore ID, number of belt grooves, and off-set of belt centerline from hub...

    Project car, sn95 body, engine seized

    Keep posting here. Did they punch a big hole in the pan to drain it? What damage did you find in the old engine?

    Codes not adding up

    Yes, the IAT has a relatively small affect on fueling, but that sensor is part of the MAF assembly, even shares a ground with the critical MAF sensor. And, I think the OP was reporting earlier that the IAT was off; seemed to seek 97F no matter what. I feel there is a problem in the MAF/IAT...

    Codes not adding up

    No reading probing pin 1-2??? There must be something, either 0 ohms or open-circuit; which is it? Where are you reading that ~20 ohms. When you probe 1-2, you are probing the pins of the sensor itself, harness disconnected, correct? I am disagreeing with above post. Resistance readings on...

    Battery power (voltage) level drops below level to crank engine

    Does it crank OK now? If so, there is no point to testing voltages. The problem is gone for now, you have to wait until it pops-up again to use the meter. If there was ever any corrosion at the battery terminals, there is a chance acid wicked into the cable and damaged it. You have a new...

    Battery power (voltage) level drops below level to crank engine

    I just browsed through the thread again. As I understand it, when you had a "no lights" situation you found 12V (or better) at the battery positive terminal, but only 4-5V down where that main cable connect to the starter. That pretty much proves there is a problem with the cable, either wire...

    Battery power (voltage) level drops below level to crank engine

    When you checked the fuses and re-connected the battery things got moved; maybe just slightly, but still moved. A poor connection, likely in that main cable, got disturbed and "healed". It could stay OK now for years, or could go open-circuit the next time you jostle the car. When you have a...

    What is this? It does not light up.

    I logged in to ask if that was a joke from Dan, then the picture appeared and I realized it is a joke from the safety nazis

    Project car, sn95 body, engine seized

    I should clarify: when I say "buy here", that includes going to a P and P JY to scrounge for parts that can usually only be found in a JY. Soft parts, like fabric or plastic, that are exposed to sunlight don't fare well here, but there is little rust/corrosion of metal parts

    Brake, ABS light, traction control light 2011 Honda Accord

    I am kind of waiting for somebody else to comment on or confirm that "32-11" code. My only suggestion at this point is to have it scanned at a different place; see if they also come up with that.

    Project car, sn95 body, engine seized

    I hate to sound mean here, but you are talking like you are a newbie; looking at it from the outside and wringing your hands in despair as you try to guess what is wrong and how to fix it. Why not just start pulling it apart, in place if need be, and find out what the real needs are? I don't...

    Brake, ABS light, traction control light 2011 Honda Accord

    32-11??? That doesn't sound like a valid code. Maybe it is P3211? I will look for info on that, but you could be talking about B3211, or C3211, or.... I won't look very much until we confirm what this code really is.

    Wow, now all the garbage is gone, just a couple of hours later. My wife's computer (Linux with Firefox) also seems to be acting up. Something is going on...

    I have been using "ad blocker plus", on Win8 with Chrome, and it has worked OK. This morning the ads are so pervasive, on this site as well as others, that I have to search for the desired content. Any ideas of why this is suddenly happening, or how to relieve it? Note that on this site...

    Vehicle shuts off while driving, then restarts after placing in park. Will repeat if going over 50mph.

    Get it scanned for codes, and make sure they understand that you are having distinct issues, so they do a thorough scan for all pending codes and hidden codes.

    Codes not adding up

    Why do you say that? My guess, from all the discussion so far, is that there is a problem with the MAF/IAT system; and probably not the MAF/IAT sensor assembly itself. I am trying to help the OP track this down systematically. Do you have a different course of action or procedure to suggest?

    Battery power (voltage) level drops below level to crank engine

    "...cable where it connects negative battery post to the starter ..." (reply #24) That statement. The negative battery post is connected to ground on most vehicles; probably this one too. There should be a large cable from the positive battery terminal to the starter, and a small wire to the...
