Code drive 5 . My 2004 trailblazer posted a code "drive 5". It showed the "reduced engine poweer" light, and would not respond to the accelerator pedal. I had been driving in slow traffic. I pulled over, turned the engine off, and restarted it. The reduced engine power light went off, and it drove fine, but the service engine light stayed on. The next day, I filled it with gas, and then the service engine light went off. Then I had the code read and it came up "drive 5".

I had to replace my turn signal socket and now my check engine light is on along with the traction light. These lights did not come on until the turn signal socket went out. I went to autozone and they tested my car for any engine problems and he said that they were no problems showing up. How can I reset the check engine light? Or is it possible that I just need to change the fuses?


You will need an obd2 scanner to reset the light. It also checks all codes but is needed to reset the light as well. Fuses wouldn't set this off. There has been known problems with the traction control system which could set the light off. ... 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

We own a 1996 Dodge Stratus and the check engine light is coming on. After changing all the spark plugs the light went out. The next day the light comes back on. While driving on the freeway the speedometer went down to 0 and when I gave the gas peddle gas the engine ribbed up while it was slowing down. (as if it was in neutral). Pulled over turned engine off. Waited about 1 hr turned the ignition key and it started up and the light was back on again. When in idle it shakes and there is t

Bought a 1997 mercury sable today, guy said it needed a starter, charged dead battery and replaced starter. It fired right up, was driving it home it died, oil light, battery light, and check engine light came on. Checked oil and it is full. So checked the battery it was sitting at 12.25 volts, so I went and bought a new battery, hooked it up and it started right up but oil light, check engine light and battery light came back on and before I could shut it off it died. Went out to Check battery


Try checking the altenator. If the starter and battery were gimpy, the altenator may have a blown regulator too!. It sounds like there is a short in the system causing this problem. Most likely the altenator or component in the charging loop. WF ... 1997 Mercury Sable

My '99 Land Cruiser has gone into limp mode twice in the past several months. First time was when I was restarting it after a short break. We pulled a battery cable, and the "Check engine" light was cleared and it ran fine. Recently, it was after running it for about a mile - the "Check engine" light came on and it went into limp mode. After letting it set for a few days during the holidays, I went back out to see what I could do, and when restarted, the check engine light was gone, and vehic

POWER LIGHT The check engine light came on in my 2000 Kia Sportage. It just went over 100,000 miles so I thought it might be a sensor/reading problem, since it went off a day or so later & continues to run GREAT. Yesterday, while on a 3 hour trip, the check engine light again came on & the POWER light came on. I have never had this light come on before, ever. Did not even know it was in the panel. We got to our motel & I parked it. Can anyone tell me what this means & what I need to do?

Thermostat My service engine soon light was on so I got a diagnostic that said my thermostat needed to be replaced. My husband put it in and let it run and it was fine. A little radiator fluid got on the engine and it stunk burning off but no biggie. I went to the store yesterday and my service engine soon light went off and I was relieved.

I was driving out 2003 thunderbird yesterday and about 5 minutes after I left home the overheat light came on and then the engine light. It started to run rough so I immediatley went home. The guage of cold to hot was right in the middle where it should be even when the tempature guage came on. A few minutes late I started the car again and went around the block. The car ran smooth but the engine light was still on. The temperature light did not come back on. I am afraid to drive anywhere today.

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy sedan. 2 days ago, I blew the fuse for the dash lights. I replaced the fuse, I turned the car, it sparked and blew the fuse.

The fuses were all fine. Today I went to start it, and the engine wont turn over. I get the beeping noise of the key inserted and door open, but the engine doe

My 2002 Isuzu Troopers Check Engine light and Reduced power light came on and the engine ran very slow and sluggish. Checked the next day and check engine light came on and Reduced power light was no longer there. Had computor diagnoses and codes P1295 and P1515 showed up. After computor check, check engine light went off and I've had no more problems, but don't trust it to drive very far. What would be the most ovious problem?


1295 simply indicates that you were in "get you home" mode. 1515 has to do with throttle position sensor fault. Since it was intermittant I'd check for chafed or broken wiring and loose connections ... 2002 Isuzu Trooper
