I think your talking about a VSS code not a BSS code- VSS stands for vehicle speed sensor. very possible that it needs a VSS.

Iturned ignition key on off on off on off,and,check engine light blinked twice,then twice again,then blinked five times,then four times,then five times,then five times,can you tell me what that means


This may have altered the programming of the alarm or ignition cutout. Your car may have a body control module which may have been altered. It may be more helpful if you specify more details including what model car you have and if it has an alarm or engine immobiliser.

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.

Service engine light comes on , what kind of scaner is needed


you can use a standard scanner with a adapter or you need a paperclip. You find the diag connector under the driver dash board. If you put the paper clip from A to B and turn the ignotion on (dont start the car) and watch the check engine light. The light will blink a code three times and then move to the next code if there is any. It will blink like so for example if the code is 12 it will blink once pause then blink twice and repeat three times. It will then display any other codes. Remember that it will show each code three times before moving to the next code. You can research the codes online, at any autozone or post them here and I will tell you what the meanings are and try to give you a course of action to follow.

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.

Hi, I have a toyota celica 1994. The yellow warning light (picture of a car with exhust flowing out) has come up. I don't have the user manual, so don't know what it means. Thanks


Does this light blink at all ? count the blinks. Sometimes it will blink three times, then pause then blink twice etc. Some variation of that? blinks once, then pause then twice. The first example is code 32, the second is code 12. These codes are in my manual, but you have to count them for me. Oh, by the way, is this a celica with the 2.2L 5sfe engine?

My check engine light blinks once, pause, twice,


If it's like some vehicles, each set of flashes of the check engine light represents a "code". So, the code your vehicle is giving you is 12345. You may check with a dealers service department or you may even be able to Google the code and you should be able to figure out what the problem is. Normally with your check engine light, it's more than likely an emission problem such as an oxygen sensor, loose gas cap, etc.

Air bag light


It means that there is a problem with your air bag. It should be blinking a code. Count the blinks. In otherwords it should blink twice, pause and then blink 7 more times indicating a code 27 which would be a burned out bulb on PAD. Count blink code and the google your truck year and air bag code and then the code and see what the forums are saying about it and what to check.

My 1993 Chevy Blazer wont start, it turns but it wont turn over and when it stopped it had a rotten egg smell


rotten egg smell is most of the time an O2 sensor.Goto your diagnostic connector and bridge the A and B posts with a paper clip. Turn on your truck to the"run" position.Your service engine soon light will start to blink,first once,pause,then twice.That's a code 12-means your computer is in diagnostic mode and will now give you all trouble codes.Three blinks is three and so forth.Codes are always repeated 3 times and are double digits (12,13,14,ect.).If the service engine soon light stays on and doesn't blink your computer is the problem and will need to be taken to a shop for further diagnosis.
