1996SE Multiple problems
I will try to keep this uncluttered...
I own a 1996 SE with 130,000+ miles on it. I love it, I have owned it for 6 years, it was my first car, yada yada. I am too poor to get a new car, but I can do basic stuff to it, (I did plugs/wires, break pads/rotors, blower motor, etc)
First off whenever I turn the wheel sharp, turn on the back window defroster, or try to roll down the windows the car sputters, and turns off. Also sometimes when I roll down the windows and the car is sputtering, the Security light will turn off when I am rolling them down, and back on when I stop. The security light is on 50% of the time and randomly turns off... Same thing with traction control. The original car alarm likes to go off randomly too. This problem has been going on for a few months now but I managed.
I had someone do a load test on the battery, the battery was almost perfect, but the alternator was charging it at 19 volts.... Whenever it warms up I will check for a loose ground or anything.
Now my check engine light has turned on, and I took it to Auto Zone to see what the codes were.
P0171- THE PCM has determined that during testing, the fuel system for bank 1 was too lean. (Bank 1 identifies the location of cylinder 1, while bank 2 identifies the cylinders on the opposite bank)
No clue about this one.
P0305- The PCM has determined that a misfire has occurred in cylinder 5.
The plugs/wires are only 20,000 miles old, coil is original.
With that said, ideas?
