The automatic transmissions in the 2003 model cars are much much more failure prone than the later ones, even at low mileage. You'll need to get the transmission specific codes out of it to be sure....

I'd put in new seals to the automatic transmission cooler under the intake manifold while you have it apart too.

That'll do it too! Or if it's backed part way out and not seeing the trigger wheel consistently, or corrodey connectors. Thanks for throwing that out there, it could definitely be that. Usually...

Do you mean the ABS light? Make sure the brake fluid level isn't low, if it's not the low fluid warning lamp it is likely the control module for the anti-lock-brakes starting to go bad, which is...

I think they should just attach. If you can get any of the mounting brackets and fender liners and stuff from the Arc that'd be good in case any of yours are broken or they are slightly different.

Clicking from the starter solenoid with no crank is often a weak / old / dying battery. Can you try hooking up jumper cables from another car (leave it idling for 5-10 mins to charge the battery in...

The body and engine harnesses didn't change too much from year to year, it might be easier to swap in a junkyard harness to replace what got hacked up?

If all of the rockers are broken then something must have seized up. It's possible that the valves are ok, but I think that is unlikely. I can't think of an easy way to check without taking it...

What were the results of the compression check again? I can't quite make out what you're trying to say.

If there is zero compression but the engine spins freely then it's unlikely that the timing...

DICE needs the VIN number for the car programmed into it when you swap in a used one. You also have to make sure the body configuration matches (2-dr, 3-dr, etc.)

I believe the MIU is required for the car to run on T7 cars (definitely on T8), it controls a lot of the CANBUS stuff. You need to have correctly programmed ECM, BCM, TWICE, and I think MIU. The...
