Check the cigar lighter fuse it is probably blown, that is where the 12v supply comes from, then check why it blew, chances are its a faulty adapter being used in it, cell phone, radar detector, etc, or there could be debris in it a coin, foil gum wrapper, if nothing found replace the cigar lighter

Check all the fuses with a 12 volt test light. Also does the cigar lighter work many times the same fuse that is for the cigar lighter also powers up the obd 2 connector.

SOURCE: engine died, everything else normal. plugged obd2

No that doesn't mean the pcm is bad. Replace the cigar fues under the hood. That is where the power is supplied to the scanner. If that fues is blown the scanner will NOT turn on. The quick way of seeing if the pcm is alive is just to turn the key on, if the check engine light is on then the pcm is alive, doesn't mean there isn't a problem but means that it is still online.
Check to see what your fuel pressure is at, you need 50-55 psi to even light the engine!

First things first. If the reader won't power up check the fuse for cigar lighter. Should be a 10 amp/yellow fuse.

PONTIAC G6 2006 runs ok ck eng lite on OBD tool is getting power when connected but can not communicate where do I look for connection falts

No year make and model. I would guess the a computer has shorted and killed the data line. This would be a full car scan. If no computers could be scanned, then you'll need to find the bad one. Disconnect one at a time till you can read the others. If it is data lines or the computer. The full scan will read all the other ones. the others will pop a communication code to the suspected computer.

Reboot the computer. Yes, you have possibly scrambled it as cars have multiple computers.

Hi Juanatijerin, Make sure that your vehicle has the sixteen pin connector and that it is OBD2 compliant. It could be fitted with the sixteen pin connector but compliant to OBD1. Check the ECU fuse. If that is okay check the power feed to the unit and the earth connections. Regards John

What is this code p0300 for suzuki forenza 2004

PO 300 --- Random or Multiple Misfires

The code it's self doesn't do anything for you
other than to look at misfire data & possibly
5 or 6 other things/items on different systems,
to determine what is going on with the vehicle
& when ,under what conditions

That said, you have to be knowledgeable as to
how OBD2 Systems works

For 99.9% of all people, a repair shop is your next stop

Was driving and all of a sudden the engine turned off and every light imaginable in my 2004 Mercury Mountaineer turned on. I coaxed to a parking lot and it won't start but all the power is still on in...

You do not need to go to any dealer ever, with any vehicle

You do however, have to find a repair shop that knows what
they are doing

Your taking about flashing updates into a different PCM
Again don't need a dealer,you need a shop with the scan
tool module for that & they have to pay for a licence from
ford to download the updates

I would say your vehicle hasn't been properly diagnosed
& has had even more problems put into it.

Can not even guess at the issues without the truck

PCM's don't fail often,put the old one back & go
to a different shop. One that has been in the same family
for 30 years

Riding down the road at 30 m.p.h. my 91 y.j. wrangler 4 ltr. just quit. I replaced the coil ,it ran2 blks. and quit again. after replacing 2 coils we broke the little catch on the wire that holds it into...

Pretty likely you can get a connector for the coil from any scrapyard. As you really don't yet know what's wrong with the computer, no idea how you'd deal with it. I'd begin by making sure the grounds are good and just unplugging and plugging back in the harness connectors (often if one's a little corroded. just doing that will clean it up). You can also use tuner and contact cleaner available at radio shack or other electronics place.
While the connectors are removed if you can find a decent wiring diagram you should check continuity from the computer terminals to the coil to make sure a wire isn't partially shorted or broken. If you don't have any understanding of what I just said, please don't rate my answer. No decent shop would diagnose unless they actually did hands on testing. I can't do that either. What i mentioned is what I'd do first.

My air bag light came on this morning how do I reset it?

Don't think you understand the technology that has
been on all vehicles for 30 years,that being OBD1
starting in 1980 & the current OBD2 96 thru 2011

Any time you get any check lights etc on your dash your
vehicle has detected a problem

Don't you find that the light is not normal & wouldn't
you want to know why

Read your owners manual

Your car has a problem that you need to first check for
codes,have diagnosed & then repaired

Those are the 3 steps you will be taking at least once
a year for the rest of your life & it will be expensive, if you
don't learn the technology & work on your on car

You have a malfunction in the SRS System (air bag)
& they may even be turned off in case you needed them

You NEVER need a dealer for ANY repairs,but you do
need to go to a local repair shop within a couple of days
ANYTIME you get ANY check lamp,MIL Lamp,Wrench,
etc on your dash.

A car is not like Windows 7 at all

It does not self diagnose & clearing the lights & codes only
prevent further diagnoses

There are NO computers used by your mechanic to do anything

ALL Scan Tools etc are data processors
Your car has no computer as you know them

There are also no tune-ups for 30 years,that is an
industry term for spark plugs & mostly a waste of
your money on other items

Testing your OBD2

Before You Begin
Since all vehicles are not the same please refer to the manual supplied with the OBD2 code reader for vehicle specific instructions.
Is your vehicle compliant?
All cars and light trucks manufactured since late 1995 should be OBD2 compliant. Two factors will show if your vehicle is definitely OBD2 equipped:
  • There will be a note on a sticker or nameplate under the hood: "OBD2 compliant”
  • There will be an OBD2 connector as shown below
Pin 2 - J1850 Bus
Pin 4 - Chassis Ground
Pin 5 - Signal Ground
Pin 6 - CAN High (J-2284)
Pin 7 - ISO 9141-2 K Line
Pin 10 - J1850 Bus
Pin 14 - CAN Low (J-2284)
Pin 15 - ISO 9141-2 L Line
Pin 16 - Battery Power
Where is the connector located?
The connector must be located within three feet of the driver and must not require any tools to be revealed. Look under the dash and behind ashtrays.
Important info about OBD2
  • Can diagnose/check engine problems in all CAN and OBD2 vehicles (1996 and newer) and many of the most popular OBD1 (1981 to 1995) vehicles
  • Features unique patented all-in-one screen display and LED display for quick emissions check
  • Automatic refresh updates data every 30 seconds when connected to the vehicle - an easy way to verify repair completion
  • Code definition can be displayed in English, French and Spanish
  • Can be Flash updated with a standard Windows® PC
  • Features memory/battery backup for off-car review and analysis
Connecting the OBD2 Code Reader is as simple as locating the DLC connector. The DLC connector is usually found under the driver side (left side) of the dash. The cable attaches only one.
Reading the LCD Display
april08_img2-small.gifClick to enlarge
Before you start testing, take a good look at the LCD display. The illustration above explains what the various icons mean and how the DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) will be displayed. The unit is self-powered by three-AAA batteries and will let you know when they are running low. When connected/receiving power from the vehicle, the CAR Icon will display.
The OB2 code reader is a very simple tool to use. Once it is connected, turn the power on. Once the ignition is switched to the on position, the code reader is checking the system for any stored DTCs.
The meaning of each DTC can be found in the manual supplied with your code reader.

Example: the code reader displays a DTC PO309, Cylinder 9 misfire was detected.
P0298 Engine Oil Over Temperature P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected P0301 Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected P0302 Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected P0303 Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected P0304 Cylinder 4 Misfire Detected P0305 Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected P0306 Cylinder 6 Misfire Detected P0307 Cylinder 7 Misfire Detected P0308 Cylinder 8 Misfire Detected P0309 Cylinder 9 Misfire Detected P0310 Cylinder 10 Misfire Detected P0311 Cylinder 11 Misfire Detected
Once you know what the problem is, you have to determine what's causing it. In this case the intake manifold gasket was faulty. Once the repairs have been made, it is time to clear the DTC and check the system to verify the repair.
Clearing the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC)
Clearing the DTC is very simple. Press the ERASE button on the code reader. A message will display on the screen; "SURE" for conformation. If you wish to clear the DTC press and hold down the ERASE button again until a message appears on the screen "DONE". If you did not wish to clear the codes and hit Erase by mistake at the screen message "SURE" simply press the link button to return without erasing any DTCs.
When you clear the DTC(s) from the PCM (Power train Control Module)you also clear ALL of the other gathered information that the PCM has collected, including Freeze Frame, Drive Cycle data, manufacture specific enhanced data end everything stored in memory is erased - just like if you cleared the Cache files on your PC.
The vehicle's PCM will need to re-learn the information that was erased. Don't be alarmed!! This is easily accomplished just by driving the vehicle. All you have to do is get driving.

Good luck and check the OBD 2 connection port.
