I looked up the code you posted, and came back as kam (keep alive memory).It's a series of battery powered memory locations in the computor which allows it to store input failures identified during normal operation for use in later diagnostic routines.KAM even adopts some calibration parameters to compensate for changes in the vehicle system The only way that I know of to fix it is replace the computor, but have it checked out first. Hope this helped.

My 1999 ford f150 has amiss fire and the p1633 code came up but the service engine light is not on

P1633 means the battery was disconnected or became discharged enough to be unable to keep the battery-backed memory in the control module alive.

If the alternator is failing intermittently, it may not always keep the battery charged enough to properly run the engine, which could cause misfires. Ensure the battery and its terminal connections are in good shape.

I am trying to connect the two facts you listed. Your facts may not be enough to find the actual cause of the misfire, however. Certainly a disconnected or otherwise discharged battery will cause the P1633 code.

My dodge intrepid cel comes on and off every 700 miles or so i took it to auto zone and the code reads po432 the guy at auto zone said i should be able to get a non fouler and put it on the o2 sensor

First take no advice from the kids at Autozone, they have no training. as for the code here are the most common reasons for the code you have.
Possible causes - Warm Up Three Way Catalytic converter deterioration or malfunction
- Exhaust system leaks
- Loose front or rear HO2Ss
- Faulty front heater O2 sensor
- O2 sensors harness is open or shorted
- O2 sensors poor electrical connection

02 sensors

the printout from Auto zone tells you that there is a probelm with fuel mixture control, this doesn't always mean the O2 sensors are defective, intake leaks and iother factors can give O2 codes, give me the code you have and i will let you know the most likely problem.

Check engine light flashes constantly on full size blazer (V-8).

That autozone person cost you a lot of money and time. Don't listen to them, if they were mechanics they would find a mechanic's job. They are trained to run the store and sell stuff. What they know about mechanics is what they learned on their own. Okay to listen to their advice, but take it with caution- they may be just as reliable as someone off the street.
All mechanics know the trouble codes do not give you license to start replacing parts. They point you in the direction of the problem, but you have to use judgement and experience from there.
You need to go to a shop with qualified mechanics. Or post the codes and take advice from the internet-they can't be any worse than Autozone. Lots of ASE certified mechanics online, not me, but others. I'm just a shadetree mech, self-learned, I only give advice when I think it might be helpful.
