SOURCE: My 06 escape abs light is on all the time while

aftermarket code readers will not read abs codes... only the ford scan tool will read the code. youve most likely got a broken tone ring on one of the axleshafts...quickest fix would be to replace the axleshaft, but you can buy the ring seperate and install it if you have the proper tools to do so...hope this helps and good luck

Had the same problem two years ago, and now have it again. Apparently, there is a special tool used to pressurize the emissions so that you can get a reading. Had to go to an Acura dealership about 40 miles from my home to get this done.

SOURCE: Own a 1995 gmc jimmy , service engine soon light

Have you checked the fuses for the cigarette lighter or accessory port fuses? These are the ones that usually power up obd II devices and allow communication between the scanner and pcm. EGR on the 4.3 are a very common problem for catbon build up and if it is stuck open will cause rough idle. Check those fuses and let me know if scanner will communicate.

What is the cause of obd1 20 pins bmw car 740i wont read in daignostic tool or scanner?someone please give some advice...

I answered this already.

You have OBD1 and you are not a BMW technician with their bespoke diagnostic software.

With OBD11, the codes are in general access.

Also, read this.

This standardization simplified diagnosis and the tools that interface with the control module. Sidebar: You'll see a scan tool from both Innova and Actron on this page.
These inexpensive car scanners work on some OBD one and all OBD II cars. However, you have to check the application chart to make sure your cars are on the coverage list before purchasing.

How do I clear check engine light

The check engine light is set by the onboard computer detecting a malfunction or out of tolerance condition. The code(s) can be read with an OBD-II scanner. Once the condition(s) that cause the codes are repaired, the code can be cleared with the OBD-II scantool. You can purchase these tools at local auto parts stores. Be careful though; the cheapest ones will only read the codes, but cannot reset the Check Engine Light.

Your vehicle is plenty old enough to smoke (ha, ha), and mileage that high could account for it smoking. I'd take the shot on driving it to the mechanic (but then I am a praying man, and that would be my very first step).

The P1600 is a generic OBD II code. It just means that a more specific code (Honda) has been set. To find the specific code you have to take it to the dealer or have a Vetronics Mastertech scan tool to get the actual code. The P1433 indicates thats the the main battery contactor or the by-pass contactor is staying active when it should not. Using an Actron pocket code reader will only read generic OBD II codes. Hope this helps.

Chevy S18 P/U.....ABS Control Module wont power off ABS light stays on.

ABS light means that somehting in the ABS system is broken.

For instance, if a wheel speed sensor goes bad, the ABS light will light when the ignition is turned on and the car is started.

Have the vehicle scanned with an ABS Brake OBD-II Scanner
such as the Actron one which retails for about $100 or so plus shipping and handling.

This will give plain English explanations of what is wrong with the ABS system when you have an ABS light on in a vehicle for vehicles ranging from 1996 on up to about 2005 or so.

There should be an OBD II plug under  the dash on the drivers side. It might have a cover over it so look real close. That actron will give you generic P codes.
