Hi there,

You will need to extract the fault codes from your vehicle's computer, as follows:

1) Turn ignition key: ON, OFF, ON OFF, ON (leave in ON position)
2) The Check Engine light (CEL) should start flashing
3) Read codes as follows:

- First group of flashes indicate 1st digit of code (followed by short pause)
- Second group of flashes indicate the 2nd digit of code (followed by short pause)
Note: a long pause separates each fault code, then codes will repeat again

e.g. Flash, Flash (short pause), Flash (long pause)...... indicates Code: 21

4) Code 55 indicates end of CEL code output


Post your codes results here and I can assist you with the appropriate repair.

Cheers,

Check engine light on need to know where plug is to check what problem is


Extracting Fault Codes:
Turn the ignition switch ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON and observe the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. The CHECK ENGINE LIGHT should begin to flash a series of codes. The flashes will be long and short. The long flashes are the "tens" and the quicker flashes are the "ones" representing the numbers of each code. There will be a slightly longer pause separating each code from the next. A code 55 will be displayed at the end of the test.

Hi,,,Igot this 2005 crown vic ,,and has a airbag lite on displays ,code 2293,,and blinks 68..6....8... What could it be?


Lamp Fault Code (LFC)
When the Restraints Control Module (RCM) detects a system fault, it will flash a coded sequence which is called a Lamp Fault Code (LFC) on the air bag warning indicator located in the Instrument Cluster (IC) module. The code is 2 digits. The first digit is flashed with a 0.5-second interval between pulses. There is a 2-second pause before the second digit is flashed, which also has a 0.5-second interval between pulses. There is a 5-second pause between each display of an LFC.
Each LFC is flashed 3 times after which the air bag indictor will remain lit for the remainder of the key-on cycle (except for DTC B2792 [cross link between firing loops] which only flashes one LFC). If there are multiple LFCs, each LFC will flash in order of priority.

Engine service light is constantly on


That's basically your vehicle telling you that there is a problem. Not 100% sure whether in 96 you can cycle key to retrieve trouble codes or not, but you can try. Here's what to try.
Turn key to ON (not start) then off, then on,then off, then on, and leave it on. Have a piece of paper and pen ready and count the flashes of the "Check engine light". It will flash a 2 digit number, with a pause in between each number. For example: flash,flash,pause, flash,flash,flash, would be code 23. Flash,flash,flash,pause,flash,flash, would be code 32. There will be a slightly longer pause in between the codes. When you get code 55, which is 5 flashes, pause, then 5 more, that means "end of message. Get back to us with the results and it will help pinpoint where the problem is and will help cure it quicker, and usually cheaper by taking out some of the guess work. We'll be waiting to hear back.

Check engine light on 1998 Z3 BMW


BMW engine light

Comes on if DME engine management system self diagnostic fault detected. Will stay on until codes are called up and memory erased.

With OBD read the code as follows. Turn on ignition key, press accelerator pedal to the floor five times within 5 seconds. The check engine light will remain on for 5 sec , blik off, come on for 2,5 sec, go off for 2,5 sec and fault code will begin to flash. If more than one fault exist 2nd fault code will be separated by 2,5 sec pause. after fault codes there will be a 0.5 sec flash and light will remain off. to read codes again do procedure again.

Canceling of codes. make sure fault code is present (short blink and light goes out for long period), depress throttle pedal for at least 10 sec. read fault codes again and check for code 1444 (no faults stored.)

Check also the following, fuel pump, oxygen sensor, fuel injectors, engine coolant temp sensor, idle speed control valve, mass airflow sensor and too many other things.

Flashing airbag light


yes, go here for more help. There is a file on how to download codes and clear system.

The number of flashes is giving you a lamp fault code, LFC. What is it giving you?

Diagnostic Test Modes Without Scan Tool
Two mode options are available under the diagnostic test modes:
  • user mode.
  • diagnosis mode.
The ignition switch is used to alternate from one mode to another.
Diagnosis Mode
The diagnosis mode will display any fault present in the system. The SRS will not enter diagnosis mode if no malfunction is detected.
User Mode to Diagnosis Mode
NOTE: The SRS will not enter diagnosis mode if no fault is detected in user mode.
  1. Ignition switch to ON.
  1. After the air bag warning indicator lights for seven seconds, set ignition switch to OFF within one second.
  1. Wait more than three seconds.
  1. Repeat steps 1 through 3 three times.
  1. Ignition switch to ON.
Diagnosis Mode to User Mode — After Repair
  1. Ignition switch to OFF for at least one second.
  1. Ignition switch to ON.
Diagnosis Mode to User Mode — During Diagnosis
NOTE: If switch from Diagnosis Mode to User Mode is required while diagnosing a fault, carry out the following procedure.
  1. Ignition switch to ON.
  1. After the air bag warning indicator lights for seven seconds, set ignition switch to OFF within one second.
  1. Wait more than three seconds.
  1. Repeat steps 1 through 3 three times.
  1. Ignition switch to ON.
Clearing Lamp Fault Codes
NOTE: Lamp fault codes must be cleared from memory before proving out the system.
NOTE: When a new RCM is installed, the air bag warning indicator will operate in user mode. Switching to diagnosis mode is not required.
To clear lamp fault codes after a repair, carry out the procedure to switch from diagnosis mode to user mode. Once in the user mode, the lamp fault codes will be cleared from memory.
Lamp Fault Codes
If the air bag diagnostic monitor detects a current fault, the fault code will be displayed with a flashing sequence of the air bag indicator. The fault code consists of:
  • A start signal to indicate the beginning of a fault code.
  • A number of flashes indicating the particular code that has been set.
The start signal:
  • begins with two seconds off.
  • two seconds on.
  • off.
  • one second on.
  • two seconds off.
Following the start signal, if any current fault is detected, the fault code will be displayed. The fault code:
  • is a series of half second flashes of the air bag indicator.
  • is followed by the start signal.
The start signal and the code for any current fault will repeat until the ignition is switched off or the air bag diagnostic monitor is switched to the user mode.
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by checking the air bag indicator in the instrument cluster. Refer to Prove Out in this section.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage using the following chart.


Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Damaged air bag diagnostic monitor bracket
  • Open fuse
  • Damaged wiring harness
  • Loose or corroded connectors
  • Circuitry open or shorted
  • Damaged shorting bars

  1. If the concern is not visually evident, enter the system Diagnosis Mode.
  1. If no DTCs are displayed in the Diagnosis Mode, proceed to the Symptom Chart in this section.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved, proceed to the Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Fault Code Table in this section.


Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Fault Code Table Code Component/Fault Description 0 Normal Operation/No Fault Detected 1 Front Passenger Safety Belt Pretensioner 2 Driver Air Bag Module Circuit Is Faulted 3 Front Driver Safety Belt Pretensioner 7 Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Fault 8 Passenger Air Bag Module Circuit Fault 9 Low Battery Voltage
