I have a 2007 toyota camry and was running fine. Intermittenly, the abs light, brake light both go on, the rpm and speedomoter gauge stop working, (sometimes the rpm and heat guage bounce around) the heat gauge stop working and the air conditioner goes off. I could be driving for 20 minutes and it goes on and off. No check engine light. I went to Auto zone for a code, but they say no error codes because the check engine light isn't on.

Had it hooked up and it came up with code P1259 Manufacturer Control Fuel Air Metering. Does anyone have any ideas as to whats going on. Thanks


I'm not sure why you got that code definition. P1259 in the factory manual reads, "VTEC system malfunction". According to the manual you are supposed to reset the powertrain control module (PCM) then road test--accelerating in first gear to over 4 ... 2000 Honda Odyssey

I have a 1992 Mitsubishi Mighty Max v6 3.0. It runs rough at high speed (not necessarily rpm) and the check engine light was on earlier this week, but is now off. Does the computer retain check engine codes? If so, how can I retrieve them? Any ideas why the engine would run and accelerate fine through about 45 mph and then start to run rough above that, seemingly regardless of rpm?


Yes, the computer does retain fault codes. They can be retrived either with a scan tool or by using an analog volt meter. (Good luck finding one of those if you don't already own one.)\012Volt meter method:\012Find the diagnostic conne ... 1993 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

Hi. I have the engine and transmission in excellent conditions. But I drove the car on my way to my job and to go from the first to the second gear the RPM went all the way up to 4000 rpm. Also while I was driving at 60 mph the tachometer was at 2000 rpm but I felt like something was wrong, like shaking. The "CHECK ENGINE" light come out so I went to ADVANCE AUTO PARTS to get the codes read. It was a "misfire problem". So I replace the spark plugs (AC DELCO platinum) and wires. The light was off
