SOURCE: Manual code retrieval for 1989 plymouth voyager 3.0 v6 engine

Hi Wayne, what you do is turn the key to the "on" position and back to "off". Do this three times. The engine light will flash. It will flash a certain amount of times, pause, then another set of flashes. The first set of flashes is the first number of your code. The second set is the second number. For example, you see 5 flashes, your first number of your code is 5, and so on.

sounds like you have a dead ignition coil very common problem. to check the ignition coil and fuel injector harness without a scan tool you can use a noid light. it is a 12volt light bulb that connects to the harness side and flashes indicating that the computer is firing the injector and or coil. there is no specifications to check the ignition coils the best way is with a scan tool see witch cylinders have the most counts in the misfire history your local dealer may also be able to perform a cylinder balance test to find the dead hole. unfoutunatly you have to remove the doghouse to access the rear coils and fuel injectors.

SOURCE: hold light blinking, check engine light on, engine slows down

check tps sensor (throttle position sensor in backside of the throttle cable) and map sensor (manifold absolute pressure on front little 1 inch sensor with vacuum line) make sure there plugged in. the ecm (engine control module driver side inner fender) and tcm (transmission control module under dash) both need the data to know when to upshift and increase fuel/air. Otherwise the computer runs default values and guesses off of other sensors giving poor performance. also disconnect battery for 15 min. usually resets aveo service lights if you dont have a scanner.

this a gerneric code that gose from the transmition computer to the power control mod.

I have had two plymouth vans and around 130,000 miles i got hesitation in the speed and throttle.. both cases the throttle position sensor went bad. It will be abiut 45 dollars and it is in a place were any one can replace it.

What does it mean when the service engine light is blinking in a 2005 Pontiac g6?

most of the time when your check engine light blinks it means your having a converter melt down. you need to find out the cause of it. most of the time its something to do with your emission system. a simple computer diag from a local parts store might tell you what sensor is not working right. or you can go to your mech and it will only take a min to check out the codes.

I am having electrical problems withmy 2001 town and country mini van

Wow! Sounds like you've got a winner there! Ok, first, the mechanic you brought the van to... If he can't fix it because there's no check engine light on, leading me to believe he's not a mechanic, more like a guy who gets dirty falling down in the shop a lot! Sorry but that's annoying to me! Time to look in to a new shop! The good news is that it sounds like you're doing pretty well on your own!
To the problem(s)...
First, have you verified that your battery is good? Remove it, bring it to a parts store and have them load test it. Next, verify your battery cables are good, terminals clean and tight, free of corrosion and where they attach, starter, fuse box, grounds are also clean and tight. Also, have you done a tune up lately? All of these issues can make your van do what you've described and before you start throwing money at the van, start withe the basics I've listed. You're ecm doesn't sound like it has any faults at all. Start with what I've suggested. If you have no improvements, I have a lot more we can try! Don't give up and don't feel bad! I've had a similar vehicle code telling me the crank sensor was bad, it was just a set of plugs! Good luck! Please let me know how you make out!

It sounds like the engine is misfiring. Get the code read at local shop or auto store. It should tell you which cylinder is misfiring then you can begin diagnosing the problem on that cylinder, whether it be a spark plug, coil, fuel injector, or you could have lean codes in which case you will have either a vacuum leak or low fuel pressure. Without the diagnostic trouble code it is hard to tell what is going on.

Automatic trans missing third goes from 2nd to fourth and slips on down shift from 4th lockup to3rd

Hi, sounds like your transmission is in limp in mode. Do you have any dash lights on like check engine light, these problems should set a code. You should have a local shop look at this or your dealer to get the codes out lot of time it might not turn check engine light on. who ever does it need to be able to read history codes. Your local parts store don't have the right scan tool to do this. if i can help just re post

Check your engine light is on when driving. Engine is ok

Go to your nearest autozone. They can scan the error code and tell you what error it is. Once you have that information it will help pinpoint the problem.
Thank you,
