If it's a 95 or older then CEL blink code 33 means Air conditioning clutch relay circuit open or shorted. This is a fairly simple repair that any shop should be able to do within an hour.

If it's 96 or newer then bring it to a shop or even a friend and have them pull the OBD2 codes for you.

SOURCE: check engine light flashing a code. what does this mean

Please visit http://www.troublecodes.net/neon/

for clarification of your error code. But I strongly believe you fixed a low rated fuel pump.

also from your explanation you got code 55 which means no error code was recorded.

Rate this please.

SOURCE: my check engine check light keeps blinking

The 02 sensor after the the converter is telling you there is a fuel mixtue problem and the converter isn't burning it off. The cat converter itself can be the problem. Have it inspected.

My car wont stay idling


Lets start with figuring out why the check engine light is on. You can get a blinkout of the the code by switching you key to the on and off position three times quickly and leaving it in the on position on the final time (note, do not take the key so far that it tries to start the engine). So start with the key in, and engine off, quickly turn the key to on, then off, then on, then off, then on and leave it there. Now watch your check engine light. It will blink out any codes that may be stored. The blinking will have breaks between each code and each code is a two digit number. For instance, blink short pause, blink blink, long pause, blink, blink, blink, pause, blink, blink, would be codes 12 and 32. I believe the final code is 55 and just simply means "end of codes". That should at least tell you if its an issue the ECU has detected. You can do a quick google search to find out what each code it spits out means. As for a guess as to why it isn't idling...I've seen everything from a failing fuel pump (inadequate pressure), to a clogged EGR valve cause this. Could be quite a few things unfortunately. Good luck!

I have a 91 Buick Century that dies after a few minutes.


Fuel or ignition problem? Right after it dies, check for spark at a plug. A bad coil will often work till it's warmed up, then fail. If you still have ignition spark after it dies, or if it starts right up again, then it's something else.
Check the fuel pressure to make sure it's at proper pressure. Also scan the computer for any trouble codes that are related. It's easy on your car if you understand how the flashing light translates to two-digit number codes. Use a wire or paperclip to bridge terminals A and B of the diagnostic test connector protruding out from bottom of dash. It's a 12 pin connector. A and B are the two upper right terminals on it. Now turn key on and the check engine light will begin blinking the codes. Code 12 is diagnostic mode-one blink, pause, pause,blink, pause blink. See? 22 would be blink, pause, blink, pause, pause, blink, pause, blink. See? 33 would be three blinks, short pause and then 3 rapid blinks. (I"m going blink crazy!) Well, get the codes-they are two digit codes, and will keep repeating, lower numbers first and in succession, over and over while in diagnostic mode. Maybe an idle sensor fault will show up.
Good luck.

Error codes for 1991 dodge spirit


Turn the key to run then off, back to run, then off, then to run and leave it on. The check engine light will be on and will then go off and then on again according to the codes the engine controler happens to have in it. If the check engine light was on when you stopped the car, then there is at least one code in the controler. The light will blink the codes like this.
Cycle the key three times and leave on on the third time. light on for about 3-4 seconds then goes out for about 2 seconds and then blinks one time and goes out for 3 seconds this is for the no.1. Then the light blinks 3 times and goes out for about 3-4 seconds. You have the code 13. You could have a whole string of codes in the controler memory. It could be something like this. key cycled 3 times, light on for 3-4 seconds, then blinks 1 time, pause, 3 times, longer pause, 2 times ,pause 4 times, longer pause, then 5 times, pause 5 times the goes out.
This is code ; 13,24, 55. code 55 isn't really a code. It just tells you it's the end of any codes the controller has.
If you disconnect the battery and hook it back, you will have code 13 which simply mean 'battery disconnect'. It will errace it's self after several starts if it's not disconnected again. If you cycle the key and you get 55, this means there are no codes recorded at this time.
You will allways get 55 when checking for codes wheather there are fault codes or not. The light on for a few second before the codes start flashing is only a bulb check. Some codes like 13 will not turn the check engine on, but but will leave a code for diagnostic purposes only. If you have the check engine light on and accellerate and the light begains to blink, then the controller is telling you that you have an engine miss and are running the chance of burning out you're catalatic converter if you continue driving. Sometimes its advised to disconnect the battery after you have recorded the codes.
This will erase all codes that are present but were generated by conditions that aren't pertanent to the present condition. and then the codes that come back are the real ones to address.

What is the codes for a 95 dodge caravan 3.0 v6 it's blinks twice


The 95 Caravan is great for giving you trouble codes. However they are two digit codes. There should be a blink sequence followed by a short pause then another blink sequence (example 2 blinks, short pause, 3 blinks... Then 5 blinks, pause, 5 blinks which means no more codes. Turn key from off to run three times and leave in run and watch check engine light to count blinks. Disconnecting negative terminal on battery for 30 seconds clears codes.

Check engine light came on and stayed on


Put the Key into the Ignition and turn from OFF to ON (not START) Position, which is right before Start and do this three (3) times. On the third time leave the Key in the ON (not Start) Position.
If you have a didgital Odometer look there for codes (example P 0123). There may be several so wait until it reads "donE". Record these Codes.
If you do not have anything reading in the Odometer window: Look immediately at the Check Engine Light and count the number of times the Check Engine Light blinks (on and off). There are two (2) digit blinks, then a pause followed by pause followed by more blinks. Record the number of blinks. The last set should be five (5) blinks followed by five (5) blinks.
Get back with me on what the blink counts were. (example 18, 23, 55).
Let me know if this helped, and provide me with additional information I requested. Contact me at FixYa.com using the comment section of tyour original Posted Question.

Check engine codes for 1991 Dodge Spirit LE , light comes on but does not blink then goes out.


Turn key to on, then off, then on, then off, then on & leave it on, (not start, just to on) then count the number of flashes of check engine light. It will flash,then have a small pause, then flash again. It will be a 2 digit number, for example: 2 flashes, pause, 2 more flashes, will be code 22. 3 flashes, pause, then 5 more flashes would be code 35. When you get 5 flashes,pause, then 5 more, That is code 55 which just means end of message. Get back to us with codes & we'll advise of what to look for.

Engine indicator lights on


Yes it does have a connection with the ECM (Engine Control Module) or PCM (Powertrain Control Module) but being that the vehicle is a 94 it is OBD I (On Board diagnostics First Gen.) so you will need a Toyota specific scan tool to retrieve the code to see what codes you have stored.
