P0012 Camshaft Position - Timing Over Retarded (Bank 1)
Difficult to give a precise answer ,either the sensor is loose ,or faulty ,or its a ECU fault ,you can test the sensor with a volt meter and a spanner ,remove the sensor connect the volt meter across the two wires ,setting to millivolts the pass the spanner across the head rapidly and see if you get a reading ,if you get a reading then refit and take car to a dealer who will have the software capable of checking the ECU

Two of my smoke alarms went off (no fire/smoke in or near house), one has a green light blinking and one has a solid green light, which need a new battery/reset?

The constant green LED means the alarm has AC power.
A flashing green light every 2 seconds without an audible alert means the unit recently sounded ( was the one activated ) and is now in latching mode to let you know that it was the unit that detected the problem. To clear the latching mode hold down the test button for 5 seconds.
Red LED flashing once per minute means that the back-up battery is connected and functioning.
Red light flashing constantly during alarm means that it is the unit that initiated the alarm siren.

there is nothing wrong with the timing chain position . Just a series of sensors that have gone outside the set parameters so if you check and change each one you will clear the faults.

Battery light comes on when running the ac

Have you checked to see if the alternator is charging the battery when this happens ?
The warning light is supposed to mean the battery is not being charged.

Po386 code still in computer but ses light is off. why is code still in computer

If the codes are not cleared from the computers memory they will remain indefinitely even though the check engine light is off. The fact the light is off means the problem has been repaired successfully. You can try disconnecting the battery or better yet use a code reader to clear the codes. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

MY air baglight is going on in my 2002 taho, the dealer ship claims they can't find anything wrong with it, but it's going on for a reson

{: ) Normally, the airbag light will come on when you start your vehicle, and it will flash for a few seconds. Then the light should go out. This means the system is ready. This is the initial system check.
What is not normal is if it stays on after the system check or when the airbag lights come on while you are driving. That means a trouble was detected by the system and will request the airbag light on.Your airbag system may not function properly during this period.
However, if the conditions that set the fault no longer exist at one point or during a certain period, the system will automatically clear the warning light. This will also mean that your airbag system will work normally as expected.
If the dealer coudn't retrieve a code or unable to duplicate your concern, and find the system to be working as designed, certainly they will have to release your car. If you are the only witness and the problem still persists as you believe, your feedbacks on your next possible visit can be of great help in their diagnosis.
You can note down some other symptoms or instances of what actually transpired before or when the airbag light came on. For example, as when you move or adjust your seat, or when you put something underneath the seats, when you pulled the seatbelt, when you moved the steering wheel and pressed on the horn, or like when your rearview display is not normal, when you open the liftgate or hood, or does it come also with another warning light or message, and anything. The technician can only do shop tests, and he can't drive your car for so many days trying to duplicate the concern. It's always you with your vehicle most of the time, and driving on different road conditions.

While running down the street the ac works great. When I stop for a stop light the ac quits working and blows warm air. When the light turns green and I start moving again the ac works great.

two things are possible here. is the a/c fan working or not. this would mean you are not getting the cooling while setting still but are while moving. also you could be low on freon charge and this will happen. if this helps please reply and good luck
