Key cycle check codes 12, 43, and 55 can anyone tell me what these are?
HI. The 12 code is a basic code that will be issued, when the battery is changed, or disconnected for a short time. This Will clear, after the car has been driven over a period of three days with a consistent flow of electricity through the engine CPU.
The 43 code is the result of a Peak primary coil current not achieved with max dwell time, or a cylinder misfire. This will, generally, be the result of a failed coil, or distributor cap(if equipped). Check the ignition control module for faults, if the vehicle is not equipped with a distributor assembly. Inspect the wires and plugs for ware, as well. This code doesn't specify the actual location , and which cylinder is misfiring, so check all coils, and plug/wires.
This 55 code is not an issue. This is just a place holder number, stating that the code read out has ended. This code dose not represent a fault. 55 = end of codes.
