Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 93 geo tracker with the same problem. Mecanic told me to look under the steereng wheel colum. Next you have to take off the speaker left next to steering wheel then get a flash light. And theres supossed to be a switch down there you have to push it once and leave it back the way it was. Then turn your car on. And light will go thats how i fixed mine. When a geo tracker hits 150xxx miles it automatically turns the chek engine light on.. Good luck

The more info you provide the better! One word answers will not help solve your problem. What you may think is the least important detail may be the key to solving your issue.
An answer like, I have spark and fuel pressure, does not help as well. I need to now how intense the spark is and how many PSI of fuel pressure you have.
It would also help to know what the code was that you erased. That very well may have been the one clue that helped solve your problem!

The check engine light being on indicates a problem in the electronic system that controls the engine, so resetting the CE light without reading the code that was set with the light being turned on by the on board computer has not fixed the problem that is keeping it from starting. This is an early system called OBD1, it requires a special scanner to plug in and read the fault codes you have. .

I had the very same problem with my 94 tracker and it turned out to be something simple. My check engine light had popped on after it had hit 100,000. I went through all of the suggestions that people had suggested (unplug battery......etc) and still to no avail. Searching the internet, I came across a website called suzukiforum.com and there, this guy was able to help me with my problem. It turned out to be a maintenance switch that kicks on every 50,000 miles. This switch is like a secret that the auto manufactures use to ploy owners of their cars to bring to the dealer and then rack up the dollars in unnecessary "repairs". The switch is located under the dash and can be hidden anywhere. From the assistance of the guy on the forum, he was able to send me photos of this damn switch and possible locations where it may be mounted. I found mine in about 5 minutes, where it was attached to the steering column. It's a tiny switch, that you slide up or down, depending on what position it is in upon finding it. If it's up, then slide it in the down position and visa versa. Once you do this, the check engine light will go off. Make sure you do not have the car running and you can even unhook one of the battery posts, just to make sure you don't hit anything while rooting around under the dash. Good luck!

SOURCE: Check engine light stays on
Disconnect battery leads and reconnect to see if this eliminates engine light.could be a false signal.Also check gasoline tank cap if light comes back on.Replace cap.mitchjl_1692

A 1993 Tracker will have OBD1 technology. Just unplug the battery for 5minutes and plug it back in. If the light persists You will have to find out and repair the problem that your cars computer believes it has.

SOURCE: check engine light blinking and
If the check engine light is blinking it usually indicates there is a misfire. If the RPMs are low I would suspect a vacuum leak. It is very common for the vacuum tube neat the throttle body to become dislodged and cause the symptoms you described.
If you don't see any vacuum leaks the best first step would be to scan the computer for codes and then focus your attention on those codes.
