The check engine light has come on for no apparent reason. Is there a way to check for error codes without a diagnostic machine? I know Dodge you can turn the key on and off 3 times and then the light will flash, If you count the flashes that is the code.

I have a 94 chevy cavalier z24 with a 3.1L engine. The ABS light comes on and sometimes the e-brake light stays on as well. I can clear the lights if I just shut off the ignition and turn it back on again. But the lights periodically come back on. I tried pulling codes by jumping power to ground on the dlc. I get a flash code 12 wich apparently means nothing as it pumps that code out at the beggining and end of the flash code cycle. So Do i need a separate scan tool to get the abs code or shou

Electrical Problem The battery was dead when I returned from the airport. After I got a jump the clock was flashing code and the head lights were flashing. About 20 min in the trip the car speakers were popping and sounding static. I smelt like somehting was burning, so I pulled over and pulled the radio fuse. That didn't work so I ended up having to disconnect the neg battery cable for the speakers to stop. Any help or suggestions would be great, thanks.


It sounds to me like you have a grounded positive wire going to the chasis of the car. This causes your battery to go dead. Check radio conections as this wire might be from the speakers. Good luck!! ... 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan, driving me nuts. For no apparent reason the door ajar light comes on and starts dinging, all the lights on the inside flash on and off and all the door locks in the van lock and unlock on their own. Sometimes it only lasts for a few minutes, other times these things are happening almost constantly. It is extremely hard to drive at night with the lights flashing in your eyes. Thanks in advance for any help with this problem.

Got a 1999 chevy truck with 5.7 ltv8. was driving on highway when check engine light started flashing. drove about 40 more miles to get to were i was going.as i got off the exit the truck was stumblin and i had to keep foot on brake and gas to keep runnin till i got home . computer code came up p0304.i did notice a bad smell and exhaust was very hot . i know there are other reasons for code but do u think its the catalyst system.


The code is a cylinder 4 misfire but not likely caused by a catalyst issue. The description indicates that cyl 4 is not igniting the gas and when the exaust valve opens is pushing raw fuel into the exaust. This could damage the catalyst but is unlike ... Chevrolet 1500

I have been getting the P0421 code since June 2006. I replaced the O2 sensor that sits at the front this January, and the code is still there. I am scared to death that I am about to be autoless.

I hope you can help, I have several questions: First -- did I replace the wrong sensor? 2nd -- Could my Cat be bad, since I do get a bad smell when the car first starts up after sitti
