Good Morning Dave...
Grab a phillips head screwdriver and looking right above the passenger side floor mat..there'* a black panel under the dash. This is the one you want to take off. It'* got 2-3 screws within easy reach across the front. The light will twist and come right out of the socket on the panel.

This way you have good access to a bad location. Right up against the passenger outter wall of the car is the relay and fuse panel they are talking about.

Bob, not jumping on you over the Evap code. It'* been mentioned over and over, but I think ultimately it will be found to be the symptom of the primary mode of failure. I think the Evap is just a victim of the REAL problem.

I know.....and agree. This one is a tough one, and I was hoping that my information might help someone (more experienced than me) to come up with some additional things to check.

I agree that there may be a mode of failure... But getting all of the little things checked first is step 1...

The Trans shift Solenoids A & B, The PWM TCC Solenoid & the TCC Solenoid, The EVAP Vent Solenoid & Evap Purge Solenoid, The IAC valve, The Injectors 1-6 , All run off of what used to be called the Quad Driver Module Evidentally now Known as the ODM, Output Driver Module IIRC... These modules even turn the AC compressor clutch on and off but use a relay to apply the AC Clutch...

With these problems happening suddenly I am tempted to say PCM, but we won't go in that direction yet...

Nick does your daughters Husband/Boyfriend know anyone that can check the car out with a Tech 2 scantool? This would be very in depth and may point them in the right direction.. Or does you Daughter know anyone in the automotive business that could be of help?

I have just received an email from them in florida, the reply was.....

Thanks for the link. It seems to have been the power train fuse. I'll keep an eye on it in case of a short due to vibration, but it was fine on a test drive. I'll keep you posted.

Looks like it was just the fuse that BOB suggested to check....

Thanks to all, I wish I could buy you all a BEER but I can't......

THAT is the best news I have heard in a while. Great to hear that it is up and running (keeping my fingers crossed and knocking in wood, just in case)

A BEER? I'll be down in an hour and a half

Glad to hear it...

I have in the past seen a fuse or 2 blow out in the Maxifuse relay center causing a nightmare for the confused owner...

Glad its back to normal... Now its time to take it out and give it a good run...lol

To Everyone:
I spoke to my daughter and David and they are happy to say that the car is running like a champ.
He has read this thread and checked the vacuum hoses under the canister and found them starting to look like they would need replacing shortly, he says next weekend he will do that job.
David would also like to thank everyone that has offered suggestions and says that he will be registering on this site when he has the time to do so, with the new baby, it may be a while.

thanks again for all your help,

Nick
