well, Hi every body!!

Ilove this site as much as I love my sc 400 .

Any way i had the same problem last year,and the dealer told that they need to shut down the whole system to find out the reason for this, and it's gonna cost me a lot.

I found the solution by my self : I looked in the engine (next to the belt on the upper left side), I saw a small black wire comming from the inside and going back inside again : It was badly scratched by the belt. All I did is just taping it and tha's it.

good luck :)

Where exactly did you look? I tried to find the wires, but didn't know where to look.

I had the O2 sensor do the same to mine. The sensor is expensive $125?? replacing it takes 5 minutes, like changing a spark plug only it's in your exhaust system. If it is the O2 sensor, you have to find out which one, there are 4. The error code will tell which one.
