You can read codes without a scanner on the 1995. You have to turn the switch on the PCM (powertrain control module) which is by gas pedal near the floor under the dash. The switch is turned with a small screw driver. Get a Haynes manual or go on internet for procedure and codes. You read the flashing service engine light to get and erase codes. Or, do as other poster said, get an OBD-II code scanner for $80, or go to parts store (Advance or AutoZone will do it) and they will read the codes for you. If you use a code reader, the port (plug receptacle or DLC) is on the passenger side under dash near center of car, near floor, on other side of PCM. You have to pull off a trim cover piece to get to it. I think 1995 is the last year for reading the flashing light and all cars from 1996 on must use OBD-II scanner/reader.

U need to check for trouble codes stored in the cars computer. Most parts stores will scan for codes for free, tell u what they are, and explain what u should do (hey, they want to sell u parts!). Even though the car is running fine, ignoring the light could result in more problems and $ as other emissions components may be affected by the problem. U also won't be able to pass an emissions or smog test if there is one in your area as long as the light is on. Let me know how u make out.

Check engine light is on in Dodge Ram 1500 why?


Drop in to a parts store like Autozone and they will scan it for you free and point you in the direction of any possible problem. If not, get back to us with that code(s) and we can help.

Warning light check engine light turns on, sometimes after 10-20 minutes drive. The engine is perfectly OK. Indicator light is off after the car has "rested" during the night.


You may have a sensor malfunction. Have a mechanic run the codes and see if there are any stored in the computer. Just because the engine runs OK now does not mean it will continue to do so. The reason the light goes off after the vehicle has set over night may be due to the vehicle not sensing the issue after the long passage of time, until you begin driving again.

Check engine light is on, what could be wrong . car is running ok but light still on


A check engine light could be anything. It is a problem with a sensor or electrical unit. The ONLY way to tell is to have a scanner put on it and run the engine codes
