What does code P1707 Mean?

I took it to Mavis and they couldn't tell me what it meant. My check engine light was NOT on but it is now going off and on for good lengths of time. As well my speedometer is acting funky. Sometimes it works and sometime it doesn't. These issues dont seem to be connected, they hardly ever sync up. Mavis wont fix it unless they know what the code means and Hyundai wants $200 just to tell me what the code means! Please help me. Thank you for your time

You mentioned Hyundai so I will assume that is the brand of car. Four digit codes are brand specific.
Code 1707 is for a problem with the brake switch. Depending on the year of the car, the brake switch circuit could be causing problems with the engine computer as well as the speedo.
Usually when the speedo acts up the problem is the speed sensor in the transmission, but you should have a code for that too.

SOURCE: check engine light on,running rough code P0172

When I see all these codes i instantly think of two things. Vacuum leak especially intake manifold gaskets and Mass air flow sensors. Spray the engine with carb cleaner when its running and see if you get it to rev up,run rough or run different. Next unplug the MAF and drive the car, see if it runs normal.

dear friend-your vehicle need to be hooked up to a HI-SCAN-PRO or GDS in order to read your fault codes.only if you have a fault code will you be able to carry out any repairs.

SOURCE: Hyundai Sonata 2006 - Check Engine light came on.

"Fuel system too lean at idle". It's an air/fuel ratio that is not correct, possibly a vacuum leak somewhere. Or a leaky exhaust pipe. Could be related to intake manifold gasket. Somewhere, air is getting into the engine.

I suggest taking it back to the dealer under warranty. I think Hyundai is 10yr./100k for the original owner. 5yr./50k if not. Ask first if covered, and ask why not id not covered.

That is a false statement

You can put an Ampere Meter on it, when it is running

You can look at the motor running with an Oscilloscope

You can check Fuel Pressure & Fuel Volume

Your problem has nothing to do with cranking
Cranking is the starter turning over the motor

You have a no start condition, due to lack of fuel pressure

Now you see why I never recommend a dealer
Why would a professional tell you that stuff?

You have a complete fuel pump circuit with other items
that can be checked

You could install a new pump & hope that is the problem,
but if it took 6 months to come back I doubt it

I see this all the time! That's what happens when the oil is not changed regularly. If your oil light is still coming on, it is because there is severe damage to the engine bearings, connecting rods, valve lifters, cylinder walls and probably the crankshaft and camshaft. That is pretty much the WHOLE engine. Your only choices are:
> Replace it with a new/remanufactured engine (this choice will come with the best warranty, but you'll pay for it).
> Replace it with a used engine (cross your fingers and pray you get a good one - hopefully, one that has been properly maintained and isn't nearly as bad as the one you are replacing).
> Remove your engine, overhaul it, and put it back in (very time-consuming and usually has very little warranty).
> Sell the car "AS-IS" or trade it in on a new car. (you probably won't get much unless you sell the car NOW while the engine still runs).

I have customers that continually go WAY overdue for their oil changes. They use excuses like "I didn't have the time" or "I just couldn't afford to get the oil changed". I try to warn them of the possibilities. I tell them that they cannot afford to NOT change the oil, but they just ignore my efforts and come back way overdue the next time. I should refer them to you!

A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why. it could be any of the following A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor
  • Defective computer
  • also
  • Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

My 2005 Jag S-Type 6 cylinder check engine light came on and while in parked position the check engine light started to blink yellow and stated "Restricted Performance" what does that mean?


You have a fault condition in the the engine management system - get the codes read to indicate where the fault lies ... It is probably just a faulty sensor as this is the most common cause of check engine warnings. The restricted performance condition is meant to protect the engine or components from damage, so don't panic - get the codes read - its probably not as bad as you expect. hope this helps - good luck.

Have a 2001 chevy impala runs great on acceleration but rough on idle engine light is on gas milage is down replaced plugs and wires wondering if i have an issue with the oxygen sensor


your check engine light will give you information that will help solve the problem-get the computer scanned, go to a retail auto parts store, they all do it for nothing. Write down the actual codes, and come back here with the codes, you will get the help you need.
