Code 55 is the end code for the code test. In other words you have no codes stored in your computer.

Iturned ignition key on off on off on off,and,check engine light blinked twice,then twice again,then blinked five times,then four times,then five times,then five times,can you tell me what that means


This may have altered the programming of the alarm or ignition cutout. Your car may have a body control module which may have been altered. It may be more helpful if you specify more details including what model car you have and if it has an alarm or engine immobiliser.

86 dodge Aries with 24 error code. Changed the tsp but still has the code and the power loss light came on again. Also has code 52(new) Car seems to go through a fair amount of gas, but that may be the...


Code 24 will stay for 50 or so starts, but 52 is indicating a rich mixture. Possible oxygen sensor faulty. Clean connectors on oxygen sensor, and clean and check map sensor connection as well. Stop at an Autozone or Pep boys or similar parts store and they will scan and erase codes for you. Then see if code returns.

How about a temperature sensor? If it's faulty it could be sending the wrong messages to your computer and your dash light.

My 1997 Dodge mini van will not start. When I do


The flashing check engine light would mean that the engine is misfiring, If you have a scanner, use it on the diagnostic port of the engine to check for the error code to get which cylinder is misfiring and if there are other errors that needs to be checked.

Engine stalling


Hello doncoth...very low mileage for an 88 aries and i doubt that anything serious is going on.
In 88 these engines were carbureted, not fuel injected & majority of the stalling problems were fuel system related on these cars,
like a broken or split vacuum hoses allowing air to be sucked into the intake manifold. Unmetered air changes the fuel mixture, and can cause a stalling problem..
Since the check engine light is coming on we need to find out what the trouble codes are.
To get the codes, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to the "run" position until all the dash lights come on (DO NOT START) Have your paper and pen ready to take notes.
Turn key back "off",then to "run" again,"off" again and then back to "run " and leave it there.....The check engine light will begin flashing....It will flash a 2 digit code....For instance,2 blinks followed by a pause,then 1 more blink would be code "21"....The last code displayed will be 55 (test is over) From that information we can determine the cause of the condition. The codes can be read here>>>> http://www.allpar.com/fix/codes/index.html the list is at the bottom of the page. Let me know what you find. I'll be glad to help you.
Good luck and i hope this helps.

Codes for 1988 dodge aries


The codes can be pulled from this car by turning the key to off on off on off on then on the forth time leave the key in the on position and observe the check engine light it will blink in two number codes for example 3 blinks then a pause and 2 more blinks would mean code #32. Here is a link to the codes table:

http://www.troublecodes.net/chrysler/95_25sfi.shtml

These codes for a 95 2.5 should be the same for your 88.

Sincerely,

JC

Stops while driving


this is usually due to a dirty throttle body. just beware if you do try to clean it you will need to preform the idle relearn procedure. this does work, ive done it personally.

A. Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning Procedure.
1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds (how would you know if you get it right?)


B. Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning
1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.
3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound (i never get this right because i never heard anything)

C. Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)
It's best to time with a watch/clock.

1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.
2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops
blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11 Wait 20 seconds
12Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications. (this is fine because SES light lets you know if you did it right the way it blinks)
