You could try to see if a local gas station could plug into the OBD2 connector & see what the error code is. You won't have to pay much, especially if you know them. It could be something totally unrelated to what you did. And you could charge the customer for the quick diagnosis if it's definetely not your fault. If you can get the car back, you can check all your work carefully & make sure that you didn't cut into any adjacent wires or cause any shorts. It could just be a coincidence. But you should take control & identify the problem rather than them taking it to the dealer. You want to avoid a bill from a dealership.

The car is a friends so there is no issues there. We have an autozone close that will scan it for free so we are going to take it there. I know I didn't accidently cut any other wires or anything, I double check while I am doing it. It didn't act up right away either it was 20 or 30 miles later is what boggles me and makes me think it is unrelated.
Thanks for the replies

If you did a tach wire make sure its not grounding out going through the firewall or any place else.

I went to radio shack the other night to get some resistors for a impala I am working on. I need a 480 ohm for the door locks on it. Radio shack had them by watts, i.e 1 w 1/2w and 1/4w. THey had the 480 in a 1/2watt. Will that work for what I need it to?

You need 1/4 watt but 1/2 watt will do because it will carry twice the current whereas 1 watt is overkill. Get the cheapest.

With a check engine light you might get a code P0304 for example notice 4 digits.Thats right there is thousands of reasons for the light to come on.They now have readers on the market for under $100.They have come down in price.

I recently put a valet r/s on the car and when I was testing it when I got it done the radio would lock itself then the next time unlock. It quit doing it for awhile now it is doing it all of the time. I connected all of the ignition and accessory wires in the ignition harness so I don't understand it. From what I understand these radios read the vin from the car and never should lock as long as they are in the correct vehicle. There is no code to unlock or anything. Any suggestions?
