Check engine lite is on but will not give me any codes. the lite just stays on


Check engine lite
Ron, there should be a code if engine light is on,you can have a code stored without a engine light, but not possible to have a engine light without a code.
I am pretty sure, what ever code reader or scan tool you are using, is either faulty or not up to the job. Try a quality scanner, there will be a code.

How do you find what check engine code is up without an scanner?


then scanner will show a code (po**** or p**** or a series of dots and dashes) You then have to refer these codes to a manual for interpretation of the faults. ie code on scanner p0707 . refers to TR sensor switch and a number of possible causes that will cause this code.. With out a scanner you cannot read any codes

Slight falter when starting out from a stop and smooth out and engine came on later that day and just got gas day before


Suggest you check out the Ody Forums. This could be a lot of different things, and getting the engine code is critical. There's an inexpensive code reader you can buy on ebay by searching for OBD2 and bluetooth. They connect to a smartphone via bluetooth and can read all the engine codes. Else a trip to Autozone and they will read it for free.

Check codes without scanner


Most any auto parts store will check for codes for free in hopes of selling you some parts. Only Chrysler products let you check without a scanner or code reader on 95 and newer models.

I own 1998 RA4 ody,d4 indicator keep blinking and check eng illuminate and when i hit the accelarator,seem like i drive in 4th gear,not from a low gear to high gear.basically what is the problem?please...


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

I have a 96 mazda b4000 and the check engine light is on how can you clear the code without using a scanner?


In obd-II vehicles, you can clear the code by having 40 or more cycles of start and run conditions followed by turning off the ignition completely without having an engine anomoly or issue.

It's easier to use the clear codes button on the obd-II scanner.

Nowadays, you can buy an OBD-II scanner for less than $100 at Walmart. I just got one.

Good luck on this.

How do i read the trouble code on a 94 passport without a scanner


This is not possible without an error code reader Unless you have check engine or service engine light Then you can hotwire the port for connecting scanner
and it will flash the code to you using the check engine light on dash
But its quicker to use a reader.
Different car models you can get to flash codes to you contact you car dealer to enquire about it.
