My question is what the cause of the obd1 port in bmw car 740i 20 pins wont read the diagnostic tool?someone please give some advice...


OBD1 is basic information 'your vehicle needs looking at'. OBD11 is the one with the codes. With earlier OBD1, dealerships could use their own diagnostic equipment as codes were pertinent to one make. OBD11 made codes more universal.

Upon starting my truck if I leave map sensor plug in it don t load up as but it still does some unplug it after it warms up runs good but it bucks and misses computer port won't read diag.tool


year/make/model helps greatly!! Most problems with scan tool connections at diagnostic plugs are lack of power at the plug. The power normally comes from the lighter fuse. If the lighter is not working, suspect no power to plug. I wouldn't toss parts at the vehicle until you get a heads up from a diagnostic scan and retrieve any codes that may pertain to your issue

Hi,
My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.
You apparently have grounding and/or a bad connection problem in the electrical system.
• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew. I can only react to the information that you provide. So please judge my suggestions accordingly. • A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices. Diagnostic tools can be borrowed from AutoZone for FREE: • Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent. Please understand that I can only analyze and suggest based on the information that you provide.
Step One:
Perform a Thorough Visual Inspection
Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time. Look first in the rear of the vehicle with the rear open. Under the plastic molding is a wire junction and this is where you'll begin your visual inspection. But first:
• Has the vehicle been serviced recently? Sometimes things get reconnected in the wrong place, or not at all. • Don't take shortcuts. Inspect hoses and wiring which may be difficult to see due to location. • Check sensors and actuators for damage. • Inspect the wiring harness wires for: - Damaged terminals. - Split or cracked connectors - Pinches and kinks. - Splits, cuts or breaks. • Inspect wiring for: - Contact with sharp edges. - Contact with hot surfaces, such as exhaust manifolds. - Pinched, burned or chafed insulation. - Proper routing and connections. • Check electrical connectors for: - Corrosion on pins. - Bent or damaged pins. - Contacts not properly seated in housing. - Bad wire crimps to terminals
If you didn't find the problem by doing the thorough inspection, proceed to the next section
Next: Perform a diagnostic Scan
Discussion: Late model vehicles are highly computer controlled to reduce emissions, maximize fuel economy and improve consumer comfort. The various control systems in vehicles are interrelated and controlled by multiple computers that constantly monitor vehicle performance through a myriad of sensors located throughout the vehicle. Based on information received, the computers adjust the vehicle performance through a series of valves, switches and motors.
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 a fortune teller or merely guessing. You car has a computer and memory and probably knows exactly what the problem is. That on-board computer is just waiting for you to ask, "What's wrong".
All the best,

Both brake lights are out, third light working, replaced bulbs & brake light circuit board, still nothing!


This could be a ground issue.
Check the wires and ground connections in the tail light with an ohm meter.
I am thinking a ground wire is at fault here.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

As you evaluate my advise. solutions and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew. I can only react to the information that you provide. So please judge my suggestions accordingly.

• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent. Please understand that I can only analyze and suggest based on the information that you provide.

Let's get started.

Discussion: This question comes up more often than you might think. My initial advice is usually the same. It may not be the fuel pump' If the engine will not start or runs but displays symptoms that you suspect are fuel-related (hard starting, hesitation, misfiring, power loss). first attempt to eliminate other possible causes of the problem.
  1. Always check the vehicle's on-board diagnostic system. (More on this later)
  2. Check the ignition system.
  3. Check for vacuum leaks.
  4. Check the EGR and PCV systems.
  5. Run a power balance test.

The following instructions will outline the above suggested procedure.

Step One.

Do a Thorough Visual Inspection

Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time.
• Has the vehicle been serviced
recently? Sometimes things get
reconnected in the wrong place, or
not at all.
• Don't take shortcuts. Inspect hoses
and wiring which may be difficult to
see due to location.
• Check sensors and actuators for
damage.
• Inspect ignition wires for:
- Damaged terminals.
- Split or cracked connectors
- Splits, cuts or breaks in the ignition
wires and insulation.
• Inspect all vacuum hoses for:
- Correct routing. Refer to vehicle
service manual, or Vehicle Emission
Control Information(VECI)
decal located in the engine compartment.
- Pinches and kinks.
- Splits, cuts or breaks.
• Inspect wiring for:
- Contact with sharp edges.
- Contact with hot surfaces, such as
exhaust manifolds.
- Pinched, burned or chafed insulation.
- Proper routing and connections.
• Check electrical connectors for:
- Corrosion on pins.
- Bent or damaged pins.
- Contacts not properly seated in
housing.
- Bad wire crimps to terminals

Second Step.

DO NOT RUN OUT AND BUY ANYTHING YET! This was only the opening act.

Discussion: Late model vehicles are highly computer controlled to reduce emissions, maximize fuel economy and improve consumer comfort. The various control systems in vehicles are interrelated and controlled by multiple computers,sensors, relays, and circuit breakers that constantly monitor vehicle performance through a myriad of sensors located throughout the vehicle. Based on information received, the computers adjust the vehicle performance through a series of valves, switches and motors. You must use a scanner to unlock the information stored in your car's computer.

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 car has a computer and memory and probably knows exactly what the problem is. That on-board computer is just waiting for you to ask, "What's wrong". All of the suggestions that I can ;make would of necessity be based on the scanner readings

Irrespective of what anyone tells you, there is but one way of diagnosing your problem. If I were to make a suggestion, it would be -- at best --. a mere guess. A diagnostic scan retrieves any information related to the malfunctioning parts and tells you precisely what is wrong. Perform the scan diagnostic now.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

Your fuse is merely indicative of a bad ground, unintended grounding, water in the wiring, etc.

With that in mind, let's begin.

First Step:

Do a Thorough Visual Inspection
Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time.
• Has the vehicle been serviced
recently? Sometimes things get
reconnected in the wrong place, or
not at all.
• Don't take shortcuts. Inspect hoses
and wiring which may be difficult to
see due to location.
• Check sensors and actuators for
damage.
• Inspect the illumination system wires for:
- Damaged terminals.
- Split or cracked connectors
- Splits, cuts or breaks in the inline fuses, circuit brreaker
wires and insulation.
• Inspect all electrical leads for:
- Correct wiring routing. Refer to vehicle
service manual.
- Pinches and kinks.
- Splits, cuts or breaks.
• Inspect wiring for:
- Contact with sharp edges.
- Contact with hot surfaces, such as
exhaust manifolds.
- Pinched, burned or chafed insulation.
- Proper routing and connections.
• Check electrical connectors for:
- Corrosion on pins.
- Bent or damaged pins.
- Contacts not properly seated in
housing.
- Bad wire crimps to terminals
