    Yes Steve, I think your right and thank you very much for your help .... what I don't understand is why isn't the valid code [15 I think] showing instead of these?

11 and 12 are not valid fault codes however if the speedometer stops working when the check engine light is on I would say you have a failing vehicle speed sensor.

SOURCE: Check Engine Light

It sounds like you may have a failing Mass Air Flow sensor, seems like Ive been seeing these tied together quite often. Its a little tricky but a good repair shop should be able to test this sensor. I dont want to tell you to replace it without having it tested cause they are a bit pricey but check around, you never know. Hope this give youu another idea where to look.

SOURCE: 1991 olds cutlass supreme with a 3.1 v-6 the engine

I am having a similar problem, but there is no check engine light. It seems that mine dies at the light or running, if the rpm's drop. I am wondering if the Idle air control valve is bad or possibly the ERG valve?

How do I reset check engine light on 1997 jeep grand cherokee

no engine size stated, so NO exact answers. ever.
same as all cars in the USA> from easy to risky
1: push the scan tool , reset. (any scan tool made works)
2: pull the hot all times fuse to PCM memory (fsm show this)
3: pull battery neg lug, (this will kill radio station programming)
the newer the car the worse #3 gets.

its on because there is a problem.
why hot scan it and see what the poor thing is attempting to tell you.
DTCs dump the DTC'S and post them.
then clear it, and drive fast for 20 miles to see if it comes back.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems 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 SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

1996 jeep grand cherokee- while driving all gauges stopped working and all dash light were flickering on and off. then all went back to normal but since then passenger side windows and door locks will not...

I would start by scanning the engine control module and the body control module and the antilock brake control module and the transmission control module and the airbag module to see if there are any fault codes that indicate a loss of power to the modules. It may tell me which circuit malfunctioned. If that does not give me a clue, I would then start to diagnose the window circuits by first checking for power at the master switch and move to the rest of the power window system from there.

As for fuses or where to start...I think you should probably read these articles before doing anything:

Where's The Fuse?

What Else Could Be Wrong?

My engine light came on, i checked the oil and i

It depends on which light you are referring to. If it was the oil pressure light and the oil level was low, then adding the oil to the right level should have made the light go out unless there is another issue. If the light you refer to is the check engine light, however, then I would suggest taking the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems and getting the codes will show what the computer has identified so corrective action can be taken. Hope this helped and best wishes.
