Thanks! The car itself has 96k on it and the replacement engine has 79k. I have had the car for a year and half and bought it at a local car dealership. The reason for replacing my engine was due to the previous owner not keeping up with oil changes and maintenance on the engine. When I first had the problem, my car shut off while I was driving home. I coasted the car into a driveway and it would not restart. I have a Verizon Hum ODBII reader gave me a code for why my car wouldn't start. Originally, I thought it was crankshaft sensor. I towed it to the first repair shop where they told me it was the timing chain and that they couldn't do it. I was forced to tow my car to yet another repair shop where they found that it was the engine it self. The shop could have rebuild the top half of the engine but was afraid that the bottom half might be just as bad. It was best to replace the engine.
As far as the SSPS Warning Light coming on, it has never happened before. My natural instinct was to check the power steering fluid but I'm glad that I looked up some more information as the car doesn't use it. I just find it odd that the warning light comes on after I have put my car in park. It doesn't come on when I'm driving and like I stated before I have no steering problems or any difficulty when I am driving.
Welcome to GenVibe. As the owner of FOUR Vibe GT's, two of them being 2009's, I've never encountered such a problem/condition. The fact that you had an engine replacement recently tells me that it is related to something not hooked back up during the surgery process. You have my curiosity on a lot of issues. How many miles on the car? How long have you owned it? What exactly was wrong with the engine which led to you needing to replace it? If the engine was shot then maybe the tranny was abused also? Fill us in on more details when you get a chance. Thanks for joining up here with us
