Yes it does have a connection with the ECM (Engine Control Module) or PCM (Powertrain Control Module) but being that the vehicle is a 94 it is OBD I (On Board diagnostics First Gen.) so you will need a Toyota specific scan tool to retrieve the code to see what codes you have stored.

To retrieve the codes, open the check terminal under the hood.

Short the two wires labeled TE1 and E1 - you can do this with a paper clip. Double check this as I am working from memory and there are several connectors.

Count the check engine light blinks and pauses. For example, three blinks one pause two blinks one pause means error code 32. All the error codes have two digits. The blinking pattern will keep repeating. There could be more than one error code.

Look up the error codes from any reference available online.

2001 VW Jetta GLX 2.8L ABS indicator lights on and engine occasionally bucking/stalling


Justin you might have to run a computer diagnosis on your car.
I feel there are a couple of short circuits on your wire ring especially on the ABS system. one of your brake ware, abs sensors is constantly in contact with your cars peripherals thus causing an electric feed back which interpreted as brake failure by the cars computer system. How ever this malfunction now acts directly on the cars Main relays, which cause your car to loose connection to the rest of the ignition system, If problem is un attended this could fuse the computer box.
Find someone to revise your cars wires.

Honda 1995 Engine light and D4 flashing...


Hi there;I suggest scanned the computer car in order to know additional fault codes. Check other details HERE.


The Check Engine light may come on, indicating a system problem when, in fact, there is a poor or intermittent electrical connection. First, check the electrical connections, clean or repair connections if necessary.


The Check Engine light and D4 light may light simultaneously when the self-diagnosis indicator blinks.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

The check engine indicator of my 1998 honda civic is always on and the idling keeps at 1500 rpm. what's the possible problem ? is it possible that idling problem is cause of a defective computer box?


Generally this would be related to either a vacuum leak, an idle speed control motor or a throttle positioin sensor. The computer uses these things to determine where to set the idle at after interpreting all of the data "sensed". You can check for vacuum leaks with a can of carburetor cleaner by sprayng a small amount using the extension tube, near the vacuum connections and the throttle body and air intake components. IF you spray a small amount at a time you won't have a potential fire hazard. When carb cleaner is sucked in through a vacuum leak, the engine slows down & this will identify a spefic location or hose.

You could stop by your local parts store & probably get a free scan for the check engine light & that could indicate more readily what a problem could be. good luck

92 Honda Accord EX sometimes wont start expecially if its hot outside or you shut it off & try to start it again. Have to wait anywhere from 15 min to 3 hours before it will start again.


It is most certainly the "main relay". It's a small gray (sometimes brown) plastic box tucked up behind the left dash vent. It controls the fuel delivery. It's secured with 10mm on top of your cruise control computer. It would be visible with a flashlight if you lay your head on the floor (with your head almost touching your gas pedal, seriously). Unbolt it, unplug it and then carefully pry of the plastic cover. If you have good eyes or look really CLOSE you'll see the cold solder pin (broken connection). The break will be thinner than a human hair. Heat that pin up with a soldering gun and watch it puddle back into shape to make the connection and you're good for another 100k miles :)

2003 honda accord. Dad changed fuse for cigarette lighter because he needed to use a prtable pump to put air in my tire. Ever since them my engine light is on . I had no problems before. What can I do?


The two should not be related. Go to atozone and ask them to run a check for the check engine light. It's free and it will tell you exactly what's wrong.

What does it mean when the dashboard indicator


that is your 'check engine' light.if it stays on, one or more sensors on your engine has sent a 'trouble code' to the on-board computer.a diagnostic code reader needs to be connected to it to determine the cause.

1998 VOLVO S70 INTERMITTENT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, GOES OFF COMES ON NO EMISSION CODES


intermittent engine codes are not serious and it just indicates that one or more of the sensors is reporting a bad signal..at what ever time intervals.....this just means that as you drive , bad connections develops as a result of the movement for a second or long enough for the computer to detect a fault and then it goes back to normal....you can check for bad connections yourself by wiggling the wires with engine running and see if the light comes on ..which will tell you where the bad connection is and then fix it yourself or just wait until the connection gets really bad and the engine light stays on permanently .the computer will then store the code thats causing the fault and you'll know exactly where it's coming from.
