New member here...and owner of a (new to me) 02 SVT.
It has a few issues, but hopefully I got a good deal.
1) Ignition cylinder is done. Have to play with the key to get it to turn....and only one key.
Would you guys recommend a replacement from Autozone? ($80 + have to get the keys programmed) or dealer part + new key from dealer?
2) Codes: P0420, P1381, P1518. I have some troubleshooting to do, but so far I haven't tracked down a service manual. Ebay might be my next stop.
I drove the car home (about 30 miles) and it purred like a kitten. No stumbles or anything. So I don't think any of these codes are major problems.
3) The hatch release button doesn't work. I think I need a manual for that too, unless someone has a few things to try. I looked in the owner's manual, but didn't see a dedicated fuse for it.
BTW... LOVING the 6-speed!
