The main Sensor is located behind the front grill on the centre support bracket. It'* a little square box about 1.5" X 1.5" X 1.5" & black in colour. This is the sensor that'* probally malfunctioned.

Yup, that'* where the car bumped when it got pushed into the back of the car in front of him. How much do one of those sensors run? Do you happen to know?

Thanks! I appreciate it. How hard would it be to switch out my engine for a supercharged one? Would it even be worth it? Are they pretty hard to keep going?

How much money do you have????? I get asked this question a min of 1X per week for the last year! There is ALOT of modifying to do in short. The Engine, Trans, ECM & Wiring Harnesses have to be changed!

Bleah. Too much trouble for right now. I think I'd rather just have the one I've got in good working order.
