Question about 1988 Daihatsu Charade

1 Answer

Check engine light coming on.

I have a 1991 G102 Charade 1.3 lt EFI with the check engine light coming on sometimes on the highway. It only stays on for a very short time and the vehicle doesn't run any differently. I can't find the diagnostic plug and hope someone can help me. Once it is found I will need the codes to.
Thanks.

Hi, it sounds like an electrical fault, possibly some loose wiring or poor grounding or possible a faulty sensor somewhere so you should prob take it to an auto elecrician rather than trying to do it yourself unless you have a workshop manual and a fair amount of knowledge. As for the diagnostic plug, its on the right hand side (passenger side) in the rear corner near the fuel filter its about 5cm long and black and has diagnostic printed on the top of the cover. Hope this helps.

Missing and not starting when gets warm and run for a bit


ok.. for starters you need to check why you are loosing revs.. it could be your powersteering switch on your steering rack not working.. just bridge switch to test.. revs should not drop on steering.. then check fuel pump relay.. and efi relay.. theese cars are gettin on.. so could be faulty with long use..heat related.. insert a visual inline fuel filter and when it stalls check fuel flow... aswell as put a little fuel in the vacum hose line and see if it starts to confirm its a fuel issue... if the visualis fuel flow than its fuel pump related.. wires can come loose of pump .. as they travell under rear seat.. and into tank.. ... good luck
