You can not clear codes or have them stay away,
until you diagnose the system fault, and make the
required repairs

No idea what those codes are
Never seen ones like that

SRS Codes are in Enhanced Data on a professional
scan tool,you can not get them from global generic
code reader

Intermediate miss fire on #3 check engine light change cap and rotor still on truck runs good idles smooth

Great! Now you just need to clear the code and see if it returns. If not, you fixed it. A scan tool or code reader can clear the code or you can just disconnect the battery for 10 seconds. HOWEVER, if you have an anti-theft radio, you will need the reactivation code before disconnecting the battery. (The code should be in the paper work that you received when the car was purchased.)

New ECm installed and code PO315 will not clear. Crankshaft position system variation not learned. What should I do?

Usually this means that the crankshaft variation relarn procedure has to be done, this has to be done usually when a major component is replaced much like you just changed the computer, the bad news is the dealers scan tool is vehical specific and the Tech2 which is the dealer scan tool can perform this task, you will most likely have to take your car to the dealer to have this done, autozones scan tool will not do the relarn on this car or any car, there scan tool is a generic code reader for trouble codes the GM Tech 2 scanner is more vehical specific and has the ability to perform the task you need done to your truck.....

Check engine light wont go out changed plugs wires still wont go out

Take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault codes that are stored in the computer. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. The fault codes show what faults the computer has identified and what system. Getting the codes will eliminate the guesswork. Hope this helped and best wishes.

How do i canceal my service engine light

The light can be reset with a scan tool. However, the light is on because the pcm has detected a problem in the emission control system. Pull the code from the computer with a scan tool or code reader, clear the SES Light and post the code here if you need additional assistance.

How to reset maintenance light on 2005 pontiac g6

Hi, you will need a code reader or scan tool hook it up to your 16 pin data link connector pull up codes and clear them. by the way a good scan tool cost around 3500.00 and a simple code reader around 300.00 or you could take it to an auto technician and have them reset it for 50.00 or less probably. happy motoring.
