There are different procedures for accessing the data link for reading codes. The cable for one vehicle will be different to another vehicle . Check the code reading specifications to switch on the link

SOURCE: Et1505an code reader comes up with link error

The only way to find out if it is the code reader or the truck is to plug in another code reader or scan tool and see if it gives you the same results (try this first).

NOTE: Generic OBD code readers will operate ONLY on the Class 2 data link. A true scan tool will operate on BOTH the Class 2 and the UART lines. Accessing the onboard computer system with a scan tool may give you a fault code that indicates that the Class 2 circuits may be malfunctioning.

To diagnose onboard computer network communications malfunctions, the proper equipment that can communicate with the ENTIRE network must be used. Please note that generic OBD code readers cannot perform this function.

SOURCE: 98 expedition will not start

Your alarm system may have a automatic disable switch that will self activate if it is installed incorrectly. if its hooked up to your ignition system, this can be UN done by, completely removing the alarm system form the truck. also, make sure there are no burned wires that run to the starter as well. check the batt post for corrosion too..

2000gmc truck parking lights will not turn off


www.ask.com/mfg.name/make/model/parking/lights/will/not/turn/off/

there can be a lot of problems, the switch inside the car is malfunctioning, shorted open meaning alway on, the micro switch
shorted out , even thou theres a short, shorted to stay on.
if you have an auto parts store that will do free trilingual code reader, it plugs into the plug underneath the steering wheel, it runs test on the car or trucks computer and gives you a code, look up the code, the auto parts should know what that codes means, if they will not know the code, than come back and the the following information.

or find the fuse for the parking brake and pull it out.

1995 f-250 runs great then check engine light comes on and the truck losses power if i turn truck off it runs fine again


I would suggest you try to use a code reader from an autozone or o'rielly auto parts because it could be a few things, anything from injectors to a cam position sensor. I had a similar issue and found 2 bad injectors.

What does a 600 reading from the computer of a 2004 chevy trailblazer mean?


P0600 is a serial communications link problem with the PCM. This could just be a problem with the connection to the diagnostic tool, and not really be a problem with the truck, could be the tool. If your truck is running normally otherwise, try a different code reader to narrow the problem. If it appears with multiple readers, the problem could be the PCM, or its female serial connection to the reader.

1992 ford f150....would not start put the odb1 code reader on it gave me a 593 code saying defroster was on turned off defroster and truck started....began to flush/backflush radiator truck was running...


Your problem does not have anything to do with code 593, the computer reset therefore allowing the truck to start. unplug your EGR valve and see if it starts up then, if so and runs normal replace your egr valve, if no change check/replace your Idle Air Control Valve.

Obd 2 connector does not work with any code scanner


HI there....Check to see if the code reader is a CAN OBD 2 code reader. If it is only OBD2 , that may be the problem. In 2003 Some vehicle manufacturers ( ford,Gm,Mazda and Saab) began using a new computer protocol called Controller Area Network (CAN) with the OBD2 and if your vehicle is CAN OBD 2 the simple OBD2 code reader will not work.Contact your local dealer to determine if you vehicle is CAN or not or find a code reader that is CAN OBD2 capable. Hope this helps you out
