Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

2003 blazer p301 code ive changed coil plugs check engen still flashing when accelerating


The flashing light means the problem is serious enough to damage the catalytic converter.
The code means cylinder 1 is not producing power. So it could be fuel, compression, or ignition related.

Suzuki samurai is getting 12olts to coil but no spark out of coil wire,tried a good coil, ecm, and a good distributer still no spark. Could it be my iginition switch


connect a fast light to the positive side of the battery, then touch the negative side of the coil. have someone to start the vehicle to see if the light flashes. if it doesn't flash the you need to check for broken wires or bad connections to the distributor. if it does flash then the good coil isn't any good.

I have a 96 chev 1500 4x4 5.7l which wont start. I checked the coil wire for spark to ground but there is no spark. What do I do next?


hook a test light to battery voltage. and touch the white wire coming out of the coil, have someone spin it over if light flashes and no spark replace coil. If light dosen't flash replace ignition module.

Mazda 626 2.2 litre voltage to the coil but getting no spark.


either the coil is bad, or distributor may be bad. test the negative side of the coil then trying to start the car with a test light. the light should flash on/off. if it does not flash, either a wiring problem or distributor is bad.
