How to manually reset computer codes on 2002 dodge neon SXT


You clear the codes with a code reader or scan tool. If the light came back on in two days with the same code the same problem came back.

Battery completely drained after 45 mins of listening to cd player without car running,


a healthy battery will take a charge and discharge and be o k -you have several things going on-the ticking noise is some kinda rely that is turning on and off probably because of low voltage-the voltage jumping around sound like the alternator is giving up and is not fully charging battery-you may also have a drain on the battery that doesn't stop when you turn the key off like an extra power amp for the radio- you can take your car to autozone or advanced auto and they will check out the charging system for free and tell you what is going on-cheers Denny

Fuse 8 on 1990 allante is drawing down the battery. will completly drain battery in 2 days


Have you checked BCM input parameter BI61? That is the most common cause of the 2-3 day battery drain. Have you tried pulling fuse #8 under the ash tray for the CPS to see if that stops the drain? You can pull one of the plugs off the AC blower control module to isolate that. If you can not hear the blower motor running with the key off, that probably is not an issue.

Replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?


First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

Is it possible that a malfunctioning odometer on a 1996 mercury sable would keep draining the battery? every other option has been tested for any shortages through the electrical system...the battery has...


If you have a good battery and it is draining to the point of not starting in an hour, you have a serious drain on the battery! I would first test the charging system to be sure it is working properly, 13.7 to 15.1 volts with the engine running.
Next, I would put a current meter inline with the battery (engine & ignition OFF) and see what the drain is. Don't do this if you are not familiar with measuring current drain, as you can easily destroy your meter. Based on the amount of this drain, I would move to the fuse panel and remove fuses an look for the same drain. This will tell us which system the fault is in.

Can I get the codes by using my on/off ignition switch or do I have to use a reader


To query and OBD-I-era computer for these codes, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to run (not start), then off, then run, then off, then run (that's 3 runs and 2 offs). Leave the key in the run position.

The check engine light will turn on for a few seconds, then turn off, then (sometimes after 20-30 seconds) start flashing. The flashes are counting out 2-digit trouble codes. Fast flashes count up each digit, with a longer pause between digits. On TJ's with a digital odometer, the code numbers are printed on the odometer in addition to flashing the check engine light. 55 indicates the end of all codes. Once you've got your code list, consult the table below to see what they mean.

OBD-II information is more complex, so the codes for 1998 and newer Jeeps can't be displayed by flashing the check engine light. However, those vehicles which have digital odometers will display the codes on the odometer. I've verified this personally on a 1999 WJ. For those vehicles without digital odometers, or for anybody who wants an English description rather than just a numeric code, an OBD-II code scanner ($100-300) can be plugged in under the dash. OBD-II codes can be looked up online here.


These codes were taken from the '95 XJ/YJ factory service manual.

I hope help you woth this. Good luck (rated this).

Hello,

I'm not sure which sensor you replaced on your Jeep. I will assume you had diagnostics run and replaced a sensor based on a trouble code.

Run self-diagnostics--

Observing the odometer display...

Turn the Key On, Off, On, Off, and On again (three times, just to the point where the dash warning lights come NOT Engine Cranking).

Now diagnostic trouble codes will display where miles is normally displayed in the odometer. Write down these codes. Note- If you lose track of the codes or wish to double/triple check the codes, simply turn the Key Off and start over.

Now clear the codes by disconnecting the negative battery cable for five minutes.

Reconnect the battery cable and check the codes.again. There should not be any codes UNLESS- there is a fault the computer (PCM) recognizes immediately OR you were unsuccessful erasing the codes. IF there are less codes than when you began, the erase was successful but there is still a problem.

To stop nitpicking, I'm going to assume there are no trouble codes displayed after clearing the codes and reconnecting the battery. Now test drive to see if the code comes back. If no codes appear after a few days (approximately 50 miles, although the threshold is more complicated than I need to get into) it appears your repair was successful.

Update us as necessary on your problem.
