13 is really dangerous. you shouldnt drive the car. call a mechnic should come out to look at it. 13 means that the engine is in the last stages of its life. be careful, it may blow up in ur next ignition start

Hello Sarah West,

That appears to be an ANTI-THEFT code LOCKOUT...

Check out (below)

The instructions say there are internal counters and timers...
but continued TAMPERING absolutely will result in

Otherwise... from here your only option is to take YOUR RADIO to an AUTHORIZED DEALER and ask them for the
necessary codes... help... assistance!

My experience with dealers... fix one ... break two (for $65).

Good luck with that.

The b 13 code came on in y. 2012 honda accord exl coupe. What does it mean

The b 13 code is displayed for you next service with the dealer. It informs the dealer what type of inspection the vehicle will receive along with its oil change. It will be reset by the dealer, however, you can reset it by holding down the push button by the speedometer and then turning on the key till the dash lights come on. Hold the button until the b service light flashes then release it and then push and hold again till the b service light resets

My Honda says a 13 what does that mean

If you mean engine trouble code 13 and the Honda is older than 1996, it means the barometer or map sensor has a problem.

I have a 97 cadillac eldorado, my (service charging) light came on. how do you know if its the batt or alt? Power Windows harder to roll up, starts but starts rougher than it should. Says 0% battery but...

I think you mean 13 volts on the gauge.
Its a simple matter to check alternator output with a meter. The battery can be load tested with a testing device at most any auto parts store.

Service engine soon light is flashing

Have the car scanned for the code's origin. This could mean that the engine will not work as well as it should, and could cause driveability isues.

A constant service engine soon light means that a hard code exists. A flashing light means that an intermittent code exists, but it could become a hard code very quickly.

1994 Sonoma service engine soon. Code 13?

Actually codes are specific to vehicles, you will need to bring it into a shop and have it checked. Any time a "Service Engine Soon" light comes on, you have and emissions problem, and it will not pass inspection
