The car is pulling a p0113 code, the AIT sensor was replaced, reset, but soon after being replaced the check engine light came back on, took it back, checked wires for fraying, damage, and it is still showing the same code what else can be done to resolve this problem?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Julia, Unfortunately replacing a sensor just because you have a code for it does not always fix the problem. Many times the problem is something else which is making that sensor read bad. I would make sure that the shop that is diagnosing your problem knows how to use a scan tool. It may be, and it looks like this is the case for you, that the sensor was probably never bad. As long as it was the same code that came back the second time, that is. If you didn't take it to a dealer, I would recommend that you do the next time. Hope this helps. Lori Johnson New from Askpatty: Ask Patty is announcing CarBlabber.
