C200 Car shut off whilst I was driving. It has some power but won't crank over. Replaced the crankshaft position sensor and the car still won't crank over. Auto electrician said he was unable to scan

try to bypass the starter motor see the diagram attached.
If there are not function, test the ignition coil+PCM+BCM, etc any part can be faulty. 0161719d-dff5-4726-a652-08d0f17e7066.jpg see the diagram, get another information from another scanner repair shop.

Check engine light

The check engine light comes on as a result of a component failure. It could be a sensor, electrical or mechanical. It is not a good idea to clear or cancel as you stated without first fixing the problem. Clearing the code will erase valuable data use for the purpose of diagnosing. Your best bet is to have the vehicle scanned and report the codes.

My securty light is on in my 2002 chevy impala and my car wont start. how do i fix the problem

The GM PASSLOCK system is the probable cause, Try a different ignition key. If that doesn't solve the problem continue reading:
A Scan Tool can be used to read and erase trouble codes, display, record and play back LIVE diagnostic data and perform other tests allowed by the vehicle maker. Scan tools that cover vehicles 1982 to present are available at your local auto supply dealer.

You don't indicate any diagnostic tests to date. A dealer or your local mechanic will charge $100-$200 to perform a diagnostic scan. However, AutoZone will provide a thorough scan for FREE. Anyone who tells you that a modern vehicle can be diagnosed without a scanner with the problems you have set forth is merely guessing.

Can i get trouble codes without the scanner on a 2004 pontiac montana

Sorry, No. But, here is the good news, take your car to your local auto parts store. They will read the codes for you, for free. If you have an Autozone, Advance, or an O'Reilly's close by, Go in and ask them to read your codes. They do this for free as a service to try and get your business. But the law states they can not clear the codes. Only advise you as to what may fix it.

Why is my OBDII not picking up codes for my ABS light coming off and on?

OBDII is strictly for engine management. The ABS uses it's own computer. You will need a higher end multi-function scan tool or an ABS specific scan tool to pull ABS codes and /or data.

My air bag light came on this morning how do I reset it?

Don't think you understand the technology that has
been on all vehicles for 30 years,that being OBD1
starting in 1980 & the current OBD2 96 thru 2011

Any time you get any check lights etc on your dash your
vehicle has detected a problem

Don't you find that the light is not normal & wouldn't
you want to know why

Read your owners manual

Your car has a problem that you need to first check for
codes,have diagnosed & then repaired

Those are the 3 steps you will be taking at least once
a year for the rest of your life & it will be expensive, if you
don't learn the technology & work on your on car

You have a malfunction in the SRS System (air bag)
& they may even be turned off in case you needed them

You NEVER need a dealer for ANY repairs,but you do
need to go to a local repair shop within a couple of days
ANYTIME you get ANY check lamp,MIL Lamp,Wrench,
etc on your dash.

A car is not like Windows 7 at all

It does not self diagnose & clearing the lights & codes only
prevent further diagnoses

There are NO computers used by your mechanic to do anything

ALL Scan Tools etc are data processors
Your car has no computer as you know them

There are also no tune-ups for 30 years,that is an
industry term for spark plugs & mostly a waste of
your money on other items

Can be many things. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. This tool will retrieve the code that has been set and the code will indicate what part is being effected. With that code you can start to diagnose the problem. Most auto parts stores will scan it for free.

Engine light just turned on

an obd 2 scan tool has to be used to diagnose your problem , it can be something minor to something

major. a scan tool will show a defined code as to what the problem is. while you only see an engine

light. most garages and auto repair shops charge you a fee to diagnose the problem. but some auto

parts stores such as auto zone auto parts will diagnose it for free at no charge, they will even give you

a print out of codes to show what parts you may need, and will carry the parts so you don't have to go

all over town. I hope this helps you, good luck!
