Warning Chime Systems The generic electronic module (GEM) will sound the following warnings:

  • key-in-ignition warning
  • safety belt warning
  • headlamp switch ON warning
  • door ajar warning
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Headlamp Switch On Warning The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds when the driver door is opened while the headlamp switch (11654) is in the PARK or HEAD position, and continues to sound at a rate of 4 chimes per second until the headlamp switch is turned off or the driver door is closed.
  • When the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, power is supplied through Circuit 293 (O/R) to the GEM.
  • When the driver door is open, the driver door open warning lamp switch (10B997)is closed and ground is supplied to the generic electronic module (GEM).
A delayed headlamps on repetitive chime will sound for a period of three seconds beginning twenty seconds after the key is turned to OFF, LOCK or ACC, the headlamp switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, and the driver door is closed. Delayed headlamps on is terminated by opening and closing the driver door again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Door/Liftgate Ajar Warning The door/liftgate ajar warning functions as follows:
  • The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds a warning tone for one second when any vehicle door, liftgate window or the liftgate is ajar without any other door already open and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • Power is then supplied through Circuit 627 (BK/O) to the door ajar warning indicator lamp which remains illuminated until all doors are closed or the ignition switch is no longer in the RUN position.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Key-in-Ignition Warning The generic electronic module (GEM) sounds when the LH front door is opened with the key in the ignition switch and continues to sound until the key is removed or the door is closed.
  • When the key is in the ignition switch, the ignition key warning switch terminal and wire (11A128) is closed and ground is supplied through Circuit 158 (BK/PK) to the generic electronic module (GEM).
  • When the LH front door is open, the LH front door open warning lamp switch (10B997) closes and ground is supplied through Circuit 57 (BK) to the generic electronic module (GEM).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Safety Belt Warning When the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START from the OFF or ACC position and remains in RUN or START, the chime will sound for six seconds or until the safety belt is buckled. The safety belt warning indicator lamp (10C859) will turn on for 60 seconds, or until the LH front safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and lamp activate at the same time. If the safety belt is buckled when the ignition key is turned to RUN or START from OFF or ACC, the lamp will prove out for two seconds, but chime will not be activated. Any time the key is changed to RUN from START while the safety belt warning indicator is activated, the safety belt warning indicator will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed, or the safety belt is buckled.

Not shifting


Any transmission trouble code will put the trans in second gear
and it won\'t shift.
Key on-off-on-off-on without starting the engine will illuminate
the check engine light .It will flash out the codes.Should see a 55
code ,5 flashes,a pause then 5 more. Any codes other than 12 and
55 need recorded for further diagnnosis.
I was thinking that turning the key on and opening the throttle wide
open 4 times within 5 seconds (engine off)clears tranny codes,not sure about that tho. You might try it then drive it and see if it shifts,although
as soon as the malfunction happens again it will go back into limp mode.
Tranny slipping or a slow shift or converter lock up malfunction along
with many other things will trigger this.

What is service engine light code 12 mean



READING CODES USING MIL (CHECK ENGINE) LAMP

Be advised that the MIL or CHECK ENGINE light can only perform a limited number of functions and it is a good idea to have the system checked with a scan tool to double check the circuit function.

  1. Within a period of 5 seconds, cycle the ignition key ON - OFF - ON - OFF - ON .
  2. Count the number of times the MIL (check engine lamp) on the instrument panel flashes on and off.

The number of flashes represents the trouble code. There is a short pause between the flashes representing the 1st and 2nd digits of the code. Longer pauses are used to separate individual 2-digit trouble codes.
An example of a flashed DTC is as follows:


Lamp flashes 4 times, pauses, then flashes 6 more times. This denotes a DTC number 46. Lamp flashes 5 times, pauses, then flashes 5 more times. This indicates a DTC number 55. DTC 55 will always be the last code to be displayed.

My 94 jeep loaps and then backfires out the tail pipe can you solve


Power train control module controls the drivetrain. If you can get a code from the computer it would go a long way diagnosing wether its an engine malfunction or computer issue. To get the codes bring a pen & piece of paper out to the car, turn the key to the run position (not start but when all the dash lights come on) then off then run then off then run (three times in the on position, after you have turned the ke on then off 3 times on then leave the key in the on position and watch the check engine light. It will flash a code to you for example check engine light turns on then off 1 time with a long pause then the light flashes three times then another pause this would be the #13 code , most start with this code to tell you that it is checking codes. Just count the # of flashes (from the check engine light) & that is the first # of the code it will pause then flash again & that is the second # of the code. Flash 5 times pause then 5 more flashes is the # 55, & that is the last code you get to indicate all codes have been displayed, so key on then off then on then off then on & watch the check engine light count the flashes write down that # when it pauses then count the next number of flashes until the pause & that is your trouble cod they are 2 # codes & usually 13 is the first code flashed & the # 55 is the code that lets you know it is done, all the 2 digit codes in between are trouble codes & can be found in a chiltons or haynes service manual or search the web for chrysler trouble or computer codes.

1997 taurus, start the engine, drive 5 min or 5 hrs. when i turn the car off and open the door the bell starts and dings for hours sometimes longer. please help me silence this.


If the key minder dings when the key is out, try wiggling the switch to see if it is loose and the sounder comes and goes. If so, replace the ignition switch, there was a problem with these on Fords for years. Some of them got to the point where you could turn the switch without the key in it.

Check engine light on


Cycle your key, on (not start) off, on, off, on. Leave it on 3rd time, and count check engine flashes. It will be a 2 digit number each time. For example: flash,flash, pause, flash, flash. Is code 22.
Flash,flash,flash,pause,flash,flash,flash, is code 33. There will be a little longer pause after each set of 2 digits. When you get flash,5 times, then flash 5 times again, that's code 55 which means end of trouble code message. have a piece of paper ready, write them down, and get back to us with results.

Engine Light does't come car will not start


did you get the codes by doing the "key dance"(on,off,on,off,on) ?

if so, it almost always flashes a 12 and 55. here is what they mean.

12 - direct power input to the PCM has been disconnected within the last 50 key-on cycles

55 - End of error messages
