    I checked the fuse under the hood, and under the dash. And both of them were good. So I have no idea as to what it could be...

Check engine light is flashing

Check engine light means that the car's computer (OBD-on board diagnostics)has read a fault of some sort. First thing I would do is get the fault code read-Auto Zone or Advance Auto will read your OBD for free. Just go there and tell them your check engine light is on-they'll know what to do, and it's free. Once you get that code (should be a 4 digit code, possibly more than one), do a Google search for your year, make and model and include that fault code-that should give you some results that can point you in the right direction.

1997 Venture ABS light is on but has no code reading

Not all OBD-2 scanners are created equal. Most only read power-train (engine/transmission) codes and are not capable of reading ABS codes. Some scanners even have a specific button you have to press to get ABS codes. Try a different scanner. I know places like Auto Zone will scan codes for free but not every store has the same reader. The AZ nearest to me has the ABS capable scanner while the one on the other side of town can't read ABS codes.

How can i get my 1997 chevy cavalier to flash codes on the dash? Is it still possible to jumper the obd II connector to make it flash the codes?

Most parts stores these days will scan your car, and give you a printout for no charge. Assuming the vehicle is running, this is the simplest way to get the codes.

I have a code reader but there is no hook-up for my 1992volvo960 2.9litre engine.My check eng. light is on.How do I read codes now?

OBD 11 scanner reads from 1996 to later models, your car is obd 1 and needs obd 1 scanner there is other way but for that you need the automobil manual repair.

Check engine light is on and cant find the problem

Need to take your vehicle somewhere and have the codes read for an OBD I system and that should reveal your check engine light problem and the possible source of what is wrong with your truck. You could try Autozone, but more than likely their scanners usually only read OBD II systems, meaning, cars after 1996. Give them a shot if their in your area.

Check engine light is on

Have the vehicle's codes scanned so you know what you're dealing with. Whether it's a hard code or intermittent, the OBD-II Scanner can help to diagnose problems in today's cars. I got one for $98 plus tax at Walmart, and it can erase codes after repairs are made.

Also, if you happen to live near a parts store, they might be able to read the codes for free.

Sensor lights are on however when put on the

Are you using a code reader or a scanner that you can read data also? If you don't have power to the OBD 2 connector it won't read codes. Usually the lighter fuse also feeds the connector. Does the lighter work?
