How to access trouble code


year vehicle manufactured? if 1996 & later, OBDII scanner to be plugged into a port (typically, should be near the steering column, under the dash).
older models may have OBDI (no standard location of port) scanner specific to the make of the vehicle. search the web, on how to read manually (or without scanner) the code by counting the number of blinks of the MIL (malfunction Indicator light) (aka check engine, or service engine soon).

How to check the engine code 2009 dodge journey sxt


Most big chain auto parts retail stores, provide diagnostic trouble code checking for free.
they will pull the codes, reset the code, and then print you the trouble code with the corresponding problems that are related to that code. And then they can give you on that same computer print out report, the parts needed to fix it and their pricing.

My 96 maxima wont pass emissions in az after replacing 02sensor and knock sensor.do i need to drive it to reset comp?


I would say 10 to 20 miles would be enough to tell if the trouble codes will return. You may be able to disconnect the battery for a couple of hours to clear the codes, but using a scanner or code reader is better.
A scanner or code reader can find history trouble codes on some models and in some cases without the engine light being on.
The purpose of the warning light is to tell the driver the vehicle needs attention now.

2003 turbo bug trouble codes? how do I find them on the car and internet? Do I need to buy a scan tool? The thing started missing really bad, like a maf sensor or vacuum leak, it's not drivable, don't want...


If you are not able to drive the car then buying an OBDII scanner will be the only way to get the codes. If you have a Autzone/Kragen near by you can drive to them and have them pull the codes. This website has a really good writeup on how to trouble shoot a engine misfire at home. Following this guide you can troubleshoot the misfire without a scanner tool. You can also reference this writeup for misfires.

How do i read the trouble code on a 94 passport without a scanner


This is not possible without an error code reader Unless you have check engine or service engine light Then you can hotwire the port for connecting scanner
and it will flash the code to you using the check engine light on dash
But its quicker to use a reader.
Different car models you can get to flash codes to you contact you car dealer to enquire about it.

Check Engine Light Reset


I don't subcribe to this idea personally but disconnecting the battery on that truck (negative cable) will clear the codes. There is no method for this vehicle (like the old GM's) to get the code meanings or #'s without at least a hand scanner. You can pick one up fairly inexpensively
