    Hey Kiaguy007

    I was reading your posts on code P200A. I have a 2011 SX A/T with about 130K miles and have had the CEL on for a couple of months. Initially it said the MAP sensor was faulty so that was replaced by the dealership in January. The light came back on about 4 months later. I went again and this time the dealership charged me for diagnosis and said I need to have my VCMA replaced. They are quoting me $900 plus. They somehow also found about $3000 worth of other routine services that require attention. The code that i am getting is P200A. The car is running fine. I am not sure if the ECM is faulty and as such displaying the code and possibly requires a reflash. I tried clearing it but it comes back on after 15 minutes. The other thing is the VCMA might need to be cleaned. Do you have a guide on how to do that
    ? Any help is appreciated to solve this problem. I have been upset with the dealership and their lack of help. Thank you

    Kiaguy007, I would like to clean stuff out between the rear glass and the upper stop light. How do I get the plastic shelf out behind the rear seat back rest?
