here is a little help. if you need more I am on facebook. There are 2 ignition 1 voltage circuits supplied to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The first ignition circuit is provided by the powertrain relay, through a fuse. This ignition 1 voltage circuit supplies power to all the internal ECM circuits associated with the throttle actuator control (TAC) operation. The second ignition 1 voltage circuit is supplied by the run/crank relay through a fuse, and is used to power the remaining internal ECM circuits. If the ECM detects a voltage difference between the 2 ignition 1 voltage circuits, DTC

97 honda civic idles rough and again at around 55 mph starts to run rough again


When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.

The four most common Check Engine Light scenarios and what to do:
* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

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.

How do i clear the check engine light on a 1992 ford taurus


Try disconnecting the battery few minutes, if the light come on again, scanned the computer car in order to know fault codes stored there.

Vehicle over heated now battery is dead


When the GMC overheats it goes into limp home mode. This is why the truck was running rough. The computer only allows the engine to run on three cylinders at a time, to allow the vehicle to continue driving without damage to the engine. If the temperature continues to increase then the computer will stop the engine from running at all. One gallon of fluid is plenty to allow the truck to overheat. As far as the battery it sounds like you need to have it charged. Get a load test on the battery and replace it if needed. Dont forget to check the alternator while your at it. A bad charging system could be the cause of a dead battery.

My 2000 GMC Jimmy had brand new battery installed roughly a week ago. Attempted to run errands last evening and whole vehicle was dead: unable to use key fob to unlock doors, engine didn't even attempt to...


Does or did the check engine light ever come on durring all of this ? Or did the alternator light ever come on durring all of this? Jump starting another vehicle, damage to your battery I duoght it, damage to your Alternator and or other electrical componants highly possible if not connected properly.The new battery going dead again could cause all of the problems you have discribed for me. If I were you the first thing I would do is check the new battery and see if it has gon dead now. If so check to see if it is Frozen. If it is frozen you will half to replace it, because once a battery has frozen it will never hold a charge again.Once you have replaced the battery with a good known one (fully charged). Start engine and warm up to normal operating temperature and then disconnect the battery if the engine keeps running then the Alternator is fine . If the engine stalls then you need a new Alternator.A bad Alternator could have ben the problem from the start.I also live in a cold climate zone ( RedDeer, Alberta, Canada).Good Luck and have a good XMSS.

P-reg 96 escort, my battery is dead after only a few hours however when the car is running (after jump starting it) the immobilisor light comes on for about a minute, then starts to flash every 3 seconds....


Bad Alternator.
After Starting or Jumping your vehicle: Remove the Negative Cable from the Battery.
If the Engine dies or runs really rough it is a bad Alternator.
The Battery Starts the Engine and runs nominal operations. The Alternator runs the Engine after it is Started by the Battery.
If the Engine does not die or runs really rough after removing the Negative Cable, then you have a malfunctioning Battery.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Intermittent Problem


Not sure if my situation helps or not, but here you go.....

I have a 2006 H3 that has 21,000 miles, last week my husband was driving and lost power, service engine came on, and it kept flashing stabilization problem. Called roadside assistance and had it towed to the dealership. Dealership said it was a dead battery and replaced it. Took the vehicle home and didn't drive for a couple of days. Drove again a couple of days later with no problems. 2 days later tried to start and vehicle had no power could not start at all. Called road side assistance and had it again towed to dealership. Dealership told us the main computer was bad and had to be replaced. We were told it is NOT a common problem, heres hoping we don't have any other issues with the vehicle.
