I have a 07 sport Trac that I removed the radio and when I replaced it back the calendar on the radio will only go up to 2011 and the clock won't let me correct the time.


May need to take to the dealer , have to hook up factory scan tool to reconfiguration it .
Audio Unit
The audio unit can be operated while the key is in RUN or ACC. The audio unit sends AC voltage audio signals to the speakers or to the amplifier, depending on vehicle configuration. The audio unit can produce its own diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), which can be communicated to the scan tool through the medium speed controller area network (MS-CAN), or retrieved through the audio unit self-test by simultaneously pressing presets 3 and 6.
See if a code comes up and let me know , tell you what it means !

Only way to tell is have a scan tool hooked up an check the DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Most auto part stores will check these for free . Could be a simple wiring problem ,or a sensor of some kind or a brake control module . Don't know with out knowing what codes are stored .

How to fix service engine soon light on 1999 ford f-150 truck with 4.6 engine


First thing that needs to be done is to scan the trucks computer using a scan tool that you can rent for free from your local autoparts store. The trouble code and definition that is retrieved from the scanner will help to let you know what is going on with the truck and what repairs will be needed to fix your truck.

Go to Step 2
Go to Scan Tool Does Not Power Up in Data Link Communications

Select the automatic level control display DTC function on the scan tool.
Does the scan tool display any DTCs?
Go to Step 4
Go to Symptoms

Want to know the purpose of a A1CE chip?


Been repairing vehicle for over 25 years and never have had this code to show up in any vehicle data base. May want to check your scan tool on another vehicle to see if it will communicate with it. It sounds like a scan tool problem.

Trouble code p0402 is coming up on the scan tool, what is the problem?


On a domestic car using a scan tool, the trouble code p0440 is an Evaporative Emission Control System Malfunction. It can mean the gas cap is not installed or working right, the purge solenoid has failed, or the canister is plugged and not working right.

I bought a 1998 mitsubishi eclipse and the check engine light came on we hooked up the machine to diagnos it and we got 2 codes po700 and p1784 . we are wondering what the codes mean and how to fix the...


DTC 1784: LOW-REVERSE PRESSURE SWITCH
1.Remove transaxle relay from connector. Turn ignition on. Install scan tool and observe low-reverse pressure switch condition. Apply battery voltage to transaxle relay connector terminal No. 8. If low-reverse pressure switch stays off, go to next step. If low-reverse pressure switch turns on, go to step 4 .

2.Raise vehicle enough to allow drive wheels to spin freely. Test low-reverse clutch hydraulic pressure. See HYDRAULIC PRESSURE TESTS under TESTING. If low-reverse clutch pressure test is not within specification, internal transaxle failure exists. If low-reverse clutch pressure test is within specification, observe scan tool.

3.If low-reverse pressure switch turns on, trouble code is intermittent. Check wire harnesses and connectors for damage or poor connection. If low-reverse pressure switch does not turn on, replace solenoid and pressure switch assembly. Recheck trouble codes. If trouble code resets, replace TCM.

4.Check and repair wiring harness between transaxle relay connector and solenoid and pressure switch assembly connector. If wiring harness is okay, check wire between TCM connector terminal No. 10 and solenoid and pressure switch assembly.

5.If wire between TCM connector terminal No. 10 and solenoid and pressure switch assembly is okay, check TCM and solenoid and pressure switch assembly connectors. Repair connectors as necessary. If connectors are okay, recheck trouble codes. If trouble code resets, replace solenoid and pressure switch assembly. Recheck trouble codes. If trouble code resets, replace TCM.

P0700-The Transmission Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transmission control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transmission controls.

I would try disconnecting he battery and letting it sit for 5 minutes, then hook it back up to see if they return-the 700 code is probably related to the 1784 code, that seems to be your main issue.

What does the check engine light mean on the 92 town car.


If lit, it means that a DTC or diagnostic trouble code is stored in the computer.
Have it scanned or get the DTC interpreted by looking up the code in the service manual.

HAND-HELD SCAN TOOLS Although stored codes may be read through the flashing of the CHECK ENGINE or SERVICE ENGINE SOON lamp, the use of hand-held scan tools such as Ford's Self-Test Automatic Readout (STAR) tester or the second generation SUPER STAR II tester or their equivalent is highly recommended. There are many manufacturers of these tools; the purchaser must be certain that the tool is proper for the intended use. The scan tool allows any stored faults to be read from the engine controller memory. Use of the scan tool provides additional data during troubleshooting, but does not eliminate the use of the charts. The scan tool makes collecting information easier, but an operator familiar with the system must correctly interpret the data. Fig. 1: Super Star II tester - Ford Motor Co. 84924047.gif
Fig. 2: Inexpensive scan tools, such as this Auto Xray® , are available to interface with your Ford vehicle tccs4p11.jpg
Fig. 3: An economically friendly alternative is this Code Scanner® from SunPro. They are purchased according to manufacturer and are available at many parts stores 91054p14.jpg
Fig. 4: The Code Scanner® from SunPro has no LCD display, just a LED that will flash out the codes and an audible buzzer to alert that the test is in progress 91054p16.jpg

Orange wrench light on all the time, what does this mean.


Hi, this light usually means it is time for service, or vehicle needs a repair.
You will need to have someone plug in a scan tool to retrieve a code, or you can pull up to an Autozone Parts store and they can pull any trouble codes from the vehicle. This is a free service they offer.
