Hi, thanks for writing in. The transmission range sensor is related to the P0705 code as you know and have fixed. The U2023 code is related to the ABS (anti-lock braking system). I would suggest replacing the ABS sensor, however the codes may not immediately clear. There should be a wiring connector under the front passenger seat about an inch and a half wide and almost an inch thick. Try disconnecting this and reconnecting it. I have seen this clear the error lights before and it usually does the trick. If this works, you will want to verify by hooking up to a scanner to be sure the codes are gone.

Q: Car not driving straight.

If your wheel is not straight you could have a broken control arm or something else may be broken in the suspension. I would have the car checked out by a technician who can better determine the cause.

There may be 2 issues to deal with here. The inability of the engine to reach "normal operating temperature" (always the center of the gauge), indicates either a weak or failed thermostat, or a failed coolant temperature sending unit/coolant temp...
