RAN A DIAGNOSTICS TEST AT A PARTS STORE AND CAME BACK ABOUT THE "INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE CIRCUIT HIGH INPUT." I DIDN'T THINK MUCH ABOUT IT, BUT THE PART IS RELATIVELY CHEAP, I JUST DON'T KNOW IF I CAN REPLACE THAT MYSELF. BUT WHEN I REGISTERED MY VEHICLE IT CAME BACK AS A FAIL ON THE EMISSIONS TEST FOR THE STATE DUE TO THIS PART. WHILE LOOKING IT UP AND CHECKING ON LINE ABOUT THIS ISSUE I SAW SEVERAL ENTRIES THAT IT MAY ALSO AFFECT THE WARNING LIGHTS FOR ABS AND BRAKING SYSTEMS. THOSE HAVE BEEN ON AS WELL FOR A LONG TIME. I HAVE HAD THE BRAKES REPLACED TWICE IN THE PAST 2 YEARS. THE SECOND TIME WAS BECAUSE THEY HAD GIVEN ME DEFECTIVE BRAKE PADS THE FIRST TIME AND THEY WERE WORN OUT WITH IN 3 MONTHS. BUT NOW I HAVE TO GET THE INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE CIRCUIT REPLACED, AND IT SOUNDS LIKE IT MAY BE MORE WIRING THAN THE CIRCUIT ITSELF, BUT I DON'T HAVE TIME AND ABILITY TO WORK THROUGH ALL THE POSSIBILITIES, NOR THE MONEY TO LET A MECHANIC DO IT AS WELL. IF THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE, THEN WHY ISN'T IT BEING ADDRESSED BY OLDSMOBILE (GM) EITHER? THEY HAVE A BULLETIN ABOUT IT!
