You still have to get an SRS reader though to sort this out. Without it, we'll all just be guessing on what the actual problem is.

You have to get an SRS code reader. Even if you try to install a bypass for the occupancy sensor, you still have to use the code reader to reset everything.

Pull the belt all the way out and spray some wood polish on the belt liberally. Let it retract and pull it out a few times and wipe off excess polish.

No, I did not grind anything off the power steering unit. I ground off the bracket where the bulge would hit it. I don't have an actual picture since the pulley is in the way.

Then it's probably your voltage regulator. Check the voltage coming out off your alternator. If it's not constant, your VR is bad.

That is the right cable, but it doesn't seem to actually have the software included. Anyway, the EU2 post cat and SAP delete is the 7528722. 724 is for low compression model engines.

it's a 2000. I'll send you a link later after I get it recorded later. In my opinion, it doesn't sound rice. It's just enough rumble for me, but of course, that's all perspective.
