  1. It's inside/attached to the outside of the fuel tank,
  2. I don't know the reason why there's two different units but I would think that there's a good reason for it.
  3. Read through this thread:
  4. Given: The car starts. 2/3-rds of the keyless entry function works. 2/3-rds function is the same for both keys I would say that what ever controls the keyless entry that's inside the vehicle - body control module or door lock module is most likely at fault. Make sure that you're using the correct transponder/keyless entry instructions. 1998 - x model years use a different set if programming instructions. However, I don't know if this change affects the ES models. According to the 1998 LS400 FSM, to check the remote operation, stand 1-meter away from the
  5. I'm not a transmission expert nor do I have experience in diagnosing your particular problem. I'm posting the following in general terms as to what you can check and what may be happening. 1. Have you checked the fluid level? What color is the fluid? Does it smell burnt? Has the fluid ever been changed? 2. Who told you that the transmission needs to be replaced? Other than the trouble codes, has any other diagnostics been performed? You have two separate trouble codes: ( 63 - Open or s
  6. There's a lot of garbage being sold on Amazon and ebay. In my experience, any unbranded, cheap, made in or being sent from China item is to be avoided like Wuhan city. I've tried more than a few sets of those LED headlight retrofit bulbs in a few of my cars and the failure rate out of the box and a few months down the road is horrendous. I've even had cell phone charger cords and counterfeit phone and camera batteries that were DOA.
  7. You're welcome. The speedometer needle in my '98 sticks (rarely) depending on the ambient temperature. I have read elsewhere that the problem is the instrument lube that's used in the gauge heads get sticky with age. The only real fix is to remove the cluster and have an instrument repair shop deal with it. There is a chance that he gauge cluster might have a bad connection at the circuit board ribbon cables, etc.
  8. The speedometer speed sensor is attached to the transmission tail shaft housing on the diver's side If the speedometer needle reads zero but the odometer is still incrementing, it's not the speed sensor. The tachometer gets its signal from the ignition system. I don't know exactly it ties into the ignition.
  9. It could be the crankshaft position sensor has failed. Find it and check its resistance. These are specs for my '98; I don't know if it apples to your '96. Resistance (cold): 1,630 - 2,740 ohms Resistance (hot): 2,065 - 3,225 ohms Crankshaft position sensors are around $50 (aftermarket) if you just want to throw parts at it. If you do go this route, ask if you can return the sensor if it's uninstalled. Compare the resistance of the new vs. existing sensor under the same temperature conditions.
  10. Maybe I'm missing something but what is the actual problem you're having?
  11. You hear the motor running, so the switch is doing what it's supposed to be doing. I suspect your problem is with the regulator. You're going to have to remove the door panel to confirm.
  12. Thanks for closing the loop and posting your fix.
  13. This is a pretty general statement. What makes you think you have a fuel pump problem? Can you describe the symptoms?
