Question about 1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata

1 Answer

1996 Miata - P1170 code - What is this code?

I looked on-line for the explanation of this code, which was revealed at the emissions testing, and no explanation came up in their system and on-line the number didn't even exist. Any ideas. I'm going to try AutoZone before a dealer.

How to fix the code p0410 in a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder


Code 410 is for a problem with the AIR system but I don't have the explanation for a Nissan.
The AIR system pumps cold air into the exhaust system to lower emissions.
You might try using a search engine to look for the test procedure for Nissan.

Receiving a code p1601 please help it rough ide and accelartoing


Powertrain Control Module Communication Line To TCM Error.

Possible Causes
  • PCM link to the TCM is open
  • PCM link to the TCM is shorted to ground
  • PCM link to the TCM is shorted to voltage
  • PCM or the TCM has failed

You will need a disagnostic scanner with testing and live data and command capabilities to test the PCM(powertrain control module) and the TCM(transmission control module) to see if either are faulty. If they test ok, then wiring harness has to be physically checked for short to ground or short to voltage.

This is not an easy fix such as an O2 sensor or other sensor or component. It absolutely required a factory level scan tool and indepth knowledge of how these two computers (pcm and tcm) operate and communicate with each other

Will 1992 miata side mirrors fit exactly on a 1996 miata


The above is a good explanation of accessing the mirror but to answer your question directly, yes, they will fit. All the 90-97 mirrors are interchangeable with the exception of installing later power mirrors onto a 90-91 Miata where it wasn't a factory option. They will mount up fine but do require enlarging the center hole where the wires need to run.

You likely just have a blown fuse at the diagnostic connector, check to see that you have 12 volts at pin 16 on the connector. See diagram of pin below.

What does the code p1170 mean for a 2004 range rover?


P1170 = Front heated O2 sensor no inversion (stuck).
means that the signal isn't increasing like its supposed to. Most likely the O2 sensor is bad. It could also be a short or that the wires aren't plugged in all the way.

I have a '96 Jetta, and i got P0440, P0302, P0172 and P1613 codes. How can I fix this? I have to go to emissions test this month, but my check endine light comes on because of these problems.


P0440- EVAP Emission Control Sys Malfunction

Something unspecified is wrong with the evaporative emission system. Check vac lines. Could be a loose electrical connection. This code has a very vague description.


P0302- Cyl 2 misfire

Has the car had a tune up in the past few years? Check plugs and wires, test for spark. Maybe a compression test. This issue may cause the next code.


P0172- Fuel trim Bank 1 , too rich

I would clear up the misfire first, then this code might go away.


P1613- MIL Call-up circuit open/Short to B+

Check the wiring under & behind the dash and instrument cluster. There apparently is a wiring issue, or the dash itself is shorted
