#18 of 20 Re: Instrument Panel Lights Don't Come On [doohickie]

Hi, thanks for your help. It turns out the wiring was incorrect and the fuse was blown. Top it all off, something is rattling around inside the dimmer switch. Is there a way i can bypass the dimmer switch ? It has three wires: black, green w/ white stripe and solid green. Autozone wants over $100 for a new one. I am thinking I can connect two of them and the dash lights will light up ....Any ideas ?
#19 of 20 99 Elantra questions regard check engine codes found

My teenage son just purchased this car for less than $1000, but it has a few issues. Seller had a problem with the catalyst converter and removed after being told that was the reason for the check engine light. Check engine light came back on after he removed it, and was told that it was because of the catalyst converter be missing. We put our reader on it and found codes PO335 & PO427. The PO427 matches what the seller was told for the catalyst converter being missing. Our question is the PO335.
1. Definition for code in question
PO335 – Crankshaft position sensor A circuit malfunction.
What is A? We have not been able to find a repair manual at any of our local auto part stores, and the Hyundai dealership can order and get here in a month. I have ordered one from Amazon, and should be here in the next few days. Was hoping that someone has a little knowledge of what this can be.
2. Another question is why the car would stall after being driven when you come to a stop. We were advised that the seller had this problem on occasion and would have to wait about 10 minutes for it to start again. We drove it on the highway from the sellers about 50 miles, stopped at a gas station and it stalled. Waited the 10 minutes and it started right up. Could this be because of the catalyst convert being gone or another issue?
