Just had the 3 lights

Different codes (one was for mechanically stuck throttle) but I took off the boot and cleaned the crap out of the throttle body, and my car has been running great with no codes or lights since then

You have the subwoofer enclosure there, the top does come off (not very easily--prone to damage if not done correctly), but there is no storage in there

I believe the blue wire from harness connects to a blue/white wire on the radio.
Or in your case it may be blue to blue

4 cylinder or 6 cylinder?

No vanos on 4 cylinder engines. Have you located the sound by using a tube or piece of hose and listening to the engine in various places?

Have you tiried tightening the cables on the e-brake?

From your description, that may be your problem, too much slack in the cables. Pull up the e-brake boot and you should see the nuts for adjustment

Good job, thanks for posting

Mine is 14 years old, so never know when I might need this info.

This should go into the DIY How To section
