Very important that if you are not savvy of working on your Vette ...you would be better off - taking your car to a dealership for repairs on your trouble codes. However if you feel that you want to, First locate your car's alcl this component is located just below the instrument panel and to the left of the center console. Remove the plastic cover the first two slots to your right are the A & B slots.
The A slot is the diagnostic slot and the B slot is the ground slot. Insert the computer key into these slots if you do not have a computer key, a paper clip or wire jumper clip will do, (with the engine off) this is very important...now only put the ignition key to on ( not start !!!) the check engine light will display a code 12 which is one flash followed by two flashes. This code will be flashed three times ..followed by the trouble code stored in your car's computer.

What ever the code is it will be flashed three times. Have a paper and pencil ready and write down the code.

Code #12: Normal No Codes. 
Code #13: Open Oxygen Sensor Circuit. 
Code #14: Coolant Sensor Circuit Low.
Code #15: Coolant Sensor Circuit High. 
Code #21: Throttle Position Sensor High. 
Code #22: Throttle Position Sensor Low. 
Code #23: Manifold Air Temperature Circuit High.
Code #24: Vehicle Speed Sensor. 
Code #25: Manifold Air Temperature Circuit Low. 
Code #32: EGR System Failure. 
Code #33: Mass Air Flow Sensor High.
Code #34: Mass Air Flow Sensor Low. 
Code #36: Mas Air Flow Sensor Burn-Off Function Fault. 
Code #41: Cylinder Select Error. 
Code #42: Electronic Spark Timing.
Code #43: Electronic Spark Control. 
Code #44: Lean Exhaust indication. 
Code #45: Rich Exhaust Indication. 
Code #46: Vehicle Anti Theft Fault. 
Code #51: Faulty Mem-Cal. 
Code #52: Fuel Calpak Missing.
Code #52(1990-91 Corvette Only): Engine Oil Temperature Sensor Low. 
Code #53: System Over Voltage. 
Code #54: Fuel Pump Circuit Low Voltage. 
Code #55: Defective ECM. 
Code #62: Engine Oil Temperature Sensor Circuit High.

Please remember that if you have the computer key installed in the alcl and you start the engine (you will ruin the engine's computer) only put the ignition to on (not to start).

If you should get a check engine soon display.. you can use the above procedure and codes to buy the right part or at the very least to keep from getting taken for a ride and be made to pay hight prices for some inexpensive module that you could have installed yourself.

If your engine displays a trouble code ... your engine will go into limp mode ..it will still run but very poorly. You might be able to reset the computer if it will not start (just to get home) by disconnecting both battery cables and re-installing them ...this is not recommended ..but if you are stranded it might help unitl you get your car home or to a repair shop..good luck.

Good luck and hope this helps.

That eliminates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Have you checked the fuel injector itself for an open winding or stuck valve plunger? There should not be a steady 12 volts to the injector--if good injector, it would be spraying fuel steadily into the throttle body. But at least the engine should try to run if poorly. Take the injector out, dry it off with air, and intermittently apply 12 volts to one terminal while grounding the other. You should hear a click from inside every time you touch 12 volts. If not, replace it. If it does, it may be plugged with debris. Try blowing through it in reverse with compressed air.

Truck will start and then stops just started acting up


Found on a '92 Toyota pickup w/V6, a bad/intermittent fuel pump relay.
Had fuel rail pressure so fooled us initially, found by listening to pump run then quit, cycle key and pump would run again then quit, sometimes when trying to start, motor would start and run for a few seconds then quit, or not start at all, this created by intermittent relay operation. Need two people, one at passenger side by tank and other to work ignition switch.
Relay located behind right, passenger kick panel, dealer item I believe about $28.00.
Just another possibility.

When my 92 chev van Lumina gets warm it stalls and won't start till It cools down. What could the problem be.


You'll need to get more information. Find an auto parts store that offers free engine code readouts and have them tell you what the engine computer has detected. This will shorten the long list of possible causes. Post again with the results - you may get to post your own solution.
I've had a bad fuel injector driver transistor in the computer (throttle body injection) and an ignition module do this to me.
