You shouldn't need to jumper anything; there is a standardized connector for code readers and it is generally on the driver's side under the dash. Please don't try jumping anything in that connector, you may damage the ECU if you connect the wrong two pins.

Call any of the chain auto parts stores and ask if they will retrieve the codes for you. This is widely available and is done at no charge.

Engine sevice light on


You have to go to a repair shop or find someone with a code reader to retrieve any problem codes from the computer. Chances are a sensor is damaged or has picked up an issue and sent the message to the computer. The computer is now telling you that there is a problem but you won't know what the problem is without a code reader which connects under the dash just below the steering wheel (or close by).

I have a 1996 caprice classic _ v8 5.7 engine.. & my check engine light is on but the car seems to run perfectly fine.. I jus brought the car & plan on changing the spark plugs & wires, but...


you need to hook up a diagnostic code retrieving tool to the aldl < assembly line diagnostic link > this is located under the instrument panel on the drivers side, plug the tester into the link, then turn on the ignition key, but do not start the vehicle, the tester will cycle through the computer , and will retrieve any trouble codes that the computer has picked up, once you have recieved the trouble code or codes, write them down, and then turn off the ignition key, and unplug the tester, then compare the codes to the code booklet, and then it will tell you what the code stands for, and then you can check those areas to see what the problem is, also if you do not have a tester, a auto part store will check this for free, hope that this information has helped you.

My service light for myu airbag went on, is there a fuse??


This is not a fuse problem. You will need to have your vehicle scanned in order to retrieve the trouble code as to why the light came on and then diagnose/ repair the issue. Hope this helped

Check engine light on in 04 dodge 1500


the computer in your dodge truck has picked up 1 or more trouble codes in the system, you will have to hook up a code testing retrieving tool to the aldl [ assembly line diagnostic link ] , normally located under the instrument panel on the left side in your truck close to the steering wheel, and retreive the codes and verify them by the booklet that came with the tester, if you don't have a tester, then go to your closest auto part store and explain to them about your engine light being on, they will hook the tester up for free, and tell you what the computer has picked up, good luck, and hope that this information was helpful to you.

My MIL indicator on my dash is constantly on while car is running in my 2007 ford fairmont ghia


If your MIL light is on then you have a trouble code stored. You need to have someone with an OBD II C.A.N. scan tool retrieve the code(s). It will tell you what is wrong. No way to diagnose here as there are too many different codes to guess.

Where can I find a list of diagnostic error codes for a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am?


MOST DIAGNOSTIC COMPUTERS CODE RETREAVERS ONELY GO BACK AS FAR AS 2006. BUT I HAVE A 1994 CHEVY LUMINA APV LS VAN, AND I BOUGHT A REPAIR MANUAL by CHILTON WHICH EXPLAINED HOW TO RETREAVED ERROR CODES WITHOUT THE USE OF A CODE RETREAVER. TRY THAT. OTHER WISE YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET INSTRUCTION FROM THE MANUFACTORY.

Check engin light !!!


You need to have your Honda checked for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores offer this as a free service. They connect a hand held 'scan' tool to your cars diagnostic port (usually under the dash) and scan for codes stored on the cars computer. They can tell you what codes they 'pull' from the computer, what they mean, and offer solutions to the problem. If after that you have further questions, post them here along with the code #'s. Good luck.

2004 ford taurus engine lite on


Take it to a parts store, they will check for engine trouble codes for free. They plug a hand held scan tool into the cars computer port under the dash, it reads stored codes on the cars computer. Write them down, ask what they mean, and how to fix the problem. This should solve your 'sputters and no pick up' problem. U can return here to post any questions u may have, include any engine codes.
