I went the Auto Zone route. They print out the trouble codes and give you some "general" ideas on where to start poking around.

Verify the code descriptions with two or three sources. One of their numbers did not apply to Ford trucks.

Chryslers can be read this way but not Ford. You need a code reader. But be aware that the code does not tell you the problem. It only suggest a symptom like open or short or out of parameters. If you dont know how to test components you wont know if you only have a loose wire or something

How to read obd code suzuki aerio


There should be two OBD ports on this vehicle, one under the steering wheel the other is located by the computer unit under the hood. Attach an OBD reader or OBD II Reader (available to be borrowed from most car part stores) and read the code.

CHECK FLUID LEVELS! IF YOU DON'T MIND SPENDING ABOUT $80. YOU CAN PURCHASE AN OBD-II CODE READER FROM WAL-MART, OR A PARTS STORE! IT COMES WITH A BOOK ON CODES! EASY TO READ, AND VERY COST EFFICIENT!

My service engine soon light came on in my 2002 ford explorer what can it be?


The service engine soon/check engine (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system you will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

How do you reset service engine light on a ford excursion


The "service" engine light is on for a reason, the On Board Diagnostic (OBD) is sensing a problem with some part of the car. The service light will stay on until the problem is resolved. It is unlikely that the problem will resolve by itself and so it needs human intervention. You or a mechanic can hook up an OBD code reader and determine what code(s) is causing the engine light to illuminate. If you want to do it yourself, a simple code reader can be purchased for about $100+, you usually get what you pay for. Also, some auto part stores offer to hook up their code reader in hopes that you'll purchase the repair parts from them. Once the problem is determined, it can be repaired, and the car should turn the service light off. It is also possible to turn off the service light with the OBD code reader, but this is not advisable for the novice to do. For more help, contact me again at FixYa and I will be glad to assist.

Have a 2002 Ford F150. Service engine light soon is on. Is there a way to manually pull the codes?


On my 02 ford pu, if you have the digital odometer, I hold the odometer/reset button down while starting engine, it goes thru test and gives error codes. Disconnecting negative battery cable for a minute, then reconnecting, will turn off the light if there are no issues.

Where is the OBD2 connector located? 2002 F150


under the steering colum near fuse box, brake pedal, gas pedal area. and if you don't know where to hook it up at, odds are you don't know how to fix the problem with your $100 scan tool. Put your nose in some books and learn before you try. That or find someone who will walk you through it.

Can't read codes with code reader


you most likley have a blown fuse. the fuse for the connector and cig lighter are usually on the same circuit . if you have a owner manuel check and see which fuse is for the obd/cig lighter. if you dont have a manuel then check every fuse in the box and see if you find a blown one. the plug whare the scanner connects is what powers the scanner so if you cant find a blown fuse then you know youre not getting power to the plug for some reason.
