Your car is obd 1 look on the passenger side by the cowl, that is by where your right knee would be. there are two connectors there the three pin is for the scanner and the two pin can be jumped(put a little wire connecting the two holes) and the engine light will blink. long blinks before short blinks will tell you what code number it is the two connectors might be in a blue rubber casing that only both plug into.

fuse number 24 is a 30 amp fuse goes to pcm relay and fuse number 30 the 30 amp fuse to ignition to pcm power diode.if check light is working your pcm has power but you could have short in the dlc connector terminal where you scanner adapter goes.your scanner suppose power up from the dlc terminal for obd 2 system the obd 1 you connect to cigarette light or use battery hook up cables that come with scanner make sure you are using correct adapter.
You hook up a code scanner and press the reset code function or you can disconnect and reconnect your battery. If there is something which is at fault after codes are cleared engine light will come back on and you should get codes checked. Most parts stores will check for you for free but their level of mechanical expertise can very drastically so check back here with trouble codes which you can't determine for further help
When the check engine light comes on the computer has detected a problem. there are too many things that can make the light come on to make a guess on the internet. You need an OBD II scanner to retrieve the code(s) and that will allow you to make a repair decision. In some areas your auto parts store will read the codes for free.
If you had it checked out the Mechanic should have hooked up a OBD II scanner to receive the Trouble Diagnostic Codes to it. The codes will reveal why your Check Engine light is on and how to fix it. You can go to your local Autozone store and they can read your codes for free and let you know what the problem is. The Traction light being on is all related to the Trouble Code you have. Once you fix the problem both lights will turn off.
I don't quite understand your predicament. Where "Hook up scanner" displayed? What sensor did you unplugged expecting for a check engine light to come on? Please give more information in order understand and advice a solution if it's truly an engine misfire and not un-metered air passing into the intake system. More vehicle information would help, it's difficult not being part of the population that are psychic.
The CEL (Check Engine Light) will not go out until you hook up a OBD II scanner to your vehicle and erase the code. If it comes back again after you erase it than either the original problem still exists or you have a new problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can hook up a scanner and erase your code for free.
try un hooking a battery cable and it will usually reset them if u dont have any problem it should go off, but usually if it comes back on there will be a problem somewhere might just be a sensor, sensor are one of the main reasons y the engine light turns on. just take it to auto zone or something and they can tell u y the light keeps coming off if, that other solution doesnt work
Well in the newer cars you cant have the car running when filling the tank.
Take it to either advance auto or autozone and they will have a scanner. Tell them you dont know what the code is. Watch how they hook it up.
They will let you borrow it, but for what they say are "liability reasons" they wont clear your codes. Just hook it up and use the scanner. Really easy, menu driven device. And it will save you a bundle compared to what the dealer wants I'm sure.
cause there is more than likely a code set in the vehicle. Check engine lights dont just come on cause they want to. Just because the light comes on doesnt mean there is something bad rong. My step dads truck has had the check engine light on for 3 years, its been cleared several times only to come back on again to... turns out it just has some stupid sensors bad but they dont affect the running condition of the vehicle. Take it to autozone, ask them to hook up scanner and go from there
it could cause the check engine light to come on if the motor had a ping. and you should put the premium in it. but the only way to konw for sure on what set off the check engine light is to hook it up to a diagnostic scanner. and that will tell you for sure and you will have to hook it up to a scanner to shut the light off also
