The engine has to be running for the scanner to pull codes out of the car. By the way, the engine must be parked as well; if the car in drive (or driving along the street), it will not run the code. The connector should be below the steering column that mates with your Actron scanner.

There should be an OBD II plug under  the dash on the drivers side. It might have a cover over it so look real close. That actron will give you generic P codes.

    Check your fuses and make sure the one that powers up the diagnostic connector isn't blown.

Obd2 scan tool don't comunicate with the pcm, what to do?


Carlos, see if there is a fuse blown to the OBD2 port, the obd port some time shares with other accessories/things like cigarette lighter.
Check all fuses, the OBD will not work if fuse is blown.

I have a Mazda MPV 2003, i bought from japan, 7 months ago, this van was running well until two days ago, it stsrts and cut off, starts again and while driving it is losing power then it will speed up


Before any diagnostics, I would run a tank of gas with a bottle of fuel dryer and injector cleaner to ensure that the engine racing isn't resulting from moisture and clogged injectors.

Hey my problem 710 ingine code on 2000 mazda mpv


Google the code & read up (OBD PO710) if that is it
I hope you know when you get codes,
that they do not mean you need to replace
a part
Codes only point to the system with the out of
range fault
You need diagnostic manuals to diagnose &
component test,no parts get replaced until they fail
a test.

Where is the pcm in a 2000 mazda mpv?


You can't test it, you decide if it is the problem by exhausting all other diagnostic possibilities before the $1000.00 part is replaced. The failure rate of this part is less than 2%, so be very careful that you are sure it is the problem.

What's your problem?I have a Mazda MPV 2000, and on Monday the 23th I put gas on my car and while I was driving, my van just shut down on me while driving and once it stop I try turning it on agai


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
