Corrected obd11 scanner it won't link up check fuse also fuel gage going up and down and cigarette lighter not working check all fuses

The OBD power at the plug will normally come from an Accessory fuse. Most likely the lighter fuse. You need to find this fuse and check/replace. The fuel guage will be a different problem. Usually a defective sending unit in the tank

No power or connection to obd-11 on 2001 pontaic montana

Attach OBD scanner to pin connector.
turn the key to the "on" position, this brings power to OBD11 connection.
follow mfg directions for the scanner you have.

2007 chevy impala codes coming up are 7e8 and 7ea. what do i look for

Seems to be a scanner component ID, not the OBD2 fault code.
You need to learn to use the scanner and interpret the readings (usually the scanner manual contains the meanings to these codes)

Otherwise you need to take the car to an independent service with Chevrolet specific scan tools or a Chevrolet dealer, for proper diagnostics.

OBD11 problem code p304-ive tried everything! please help!

  • P0304 is a detected misfire in cylender 4 only.

  • First thing I would like you to check is your firing order. While one misfire can make the engine hesitate and run awful it is not likely to preven all together starting.

  • Here is your firing order, double check


  • You said you changed the coil pace, wires and plugs not long ago and still get the code correct? Assuming the firing order is correct we will move on.

  • Swap fuel injectors from and cylinder with #4. Now reset the codes and see if the code remains a P0304 or weather it moves. If it moves to the cylinder you swapped the injector with the the injector is at fault. If not the the injector itself is not the problem.

  • A smell of rotten eggs out of the tail pipe can be the sign of a bad catalytic converter. a P0304 alone rarely means the converter could be at fault it could be as well as a faulty computer.
  • I might suggest to switch the wire from #4 with another cylinder just to make sure you did not get a faulty wire and I would pull the plug from #4 and make sure it is not fouled again.

  • After all of the things you tried and the injector sway I would suggest that you put a pressure gauge on that cylinder and see if you have decent pressure. You could have an undetected head gasket failure, worn valve. A leak down test may have to be performed if the pressure is low to find out where the leak is.

  • Hope this helps.

Got code PO449 on the obd11 scanner, could you

p0449 is an evaporative emission code that indicates a problem with the canister vent solenoid.. without being able to scan and check all of the system I would recomend replacing the vent solenoid. I believe their was a GM TSB on that part and it has been modified.
please respond with fix details
