I am performing a diagonstic in car trouble shooting by checking the check engine light. I have two codes that keep coming up the first code is 12 and the second code is 21 which has to do with the O2S. My...


O2 sensors are screwed in to the exhaust. There should be one before the catalytic convertor to help the computer determine fuel strategy and one after the catalytic converter to monitor cat. conv. efficiency. Follow the exhaust and you will find them. By the way code 12 means you entered the diagnostic mode code 55 means you finished the cycle.

Toyaota Camry 1994 engine won't start, Engine light on


I would check for fuel,(pressure and injector pulse), spark, and compression, before checking any codes. Lack of any of these basics can result in codes, and then you waste alot of time chasing a symptom, instead of the actual problem.If more people followed basic diagnostics, which always come back to these three basics, rather than chasing codes first,they would find no starts much more quickly.

My 2000 sebring will stall and not restart while driving


The searing stalls and will not start right.This can be cause by low fuel pressure problem or bad timing belt or problem with ECM(the cars computer) it self.Also if you notice that check engine light is coming on and remaining steady ON,then get the car scanned to retrieve the error codes.That error code will point towards the fault causing this problem.

On a 2004 chrysler sebring conv. theres a light just above to the left of the temp. gauge, looks like a little motor, temp is fine not low on coolant. I don't have owners manual


This is your check engine light. The light is indicating that the engine computer has detected a fault in the system. The computer uses a number of sensors to monitor what is happening with the engine and perhaps a few other systems in the car. A scanner is used to hookup to the computer thru a connector, usually under the dash by the drivers knees.
The scanner will read the fault codes stored by the computer. Many parts stores, such as Autozone and Advance, will provide a free scan of your car/truck. Your mechanic may have a more advanced scanner that can troubleshoot each code down to the component failure, but if you want to do it yourself (or perhaps with a little help from FixYa), write down the codes and look them up online. The following page lists the standard codes and their probable causes: http://alflash.com.ua/OBDII/EOBDcodes.pdf
This only gives you some ideas for troubleshooting. Let us know if you need help deciphering codes or troubleshooting your codes. When writing to FixYa, please identify your codes and provide information on any symptoms you are experiencing with the car/truck.

1996 bmw 328i automatic seems to be stuck in first gear. What should I check first?


You probably will have a check engine light coming up on your dashboard.The best option is to have a diagnostic test done which will give you some codes. Once you get these codes you can start troubleshooting the car. Hope this helps.

What are troubleshooting codes P1684 and P0456?


P0456 is a small vacuum leak - see if you can trace down the vac lines for inspection according to the diagram that's on the sticker under the hood (it should be near the end of the hood prop on the covering over the radiator). I just took a picture of my 2002 Chrysler Town & Country but to get it small enough to upload you can't read the detail.

P1684 is an easily trigerred code that is from a diagnostic reader or battery issue - not 100% sure of it's cause but it does not trip the engine light.

Car will not start unless discontecting cam sensor


Could be a bad timing belt or cam sensor with the computer trying to compensate.

Is the check engine light on, are you able to check if the vehicle has any error codes?

Here is a list of ODBCII error codes for the Chrysler Sebring

So you don't have to take the car to a shop every time a great tool to have that can save you some money to read computer error codes and clear them after work has been done can be had for under $100 from Actron. This is what I have been using and its a life saver but it's also good to have the vehicles repair manual as well.

The computer on this car is OBDII like many other vehicles out there these days so you'll need a tool that can plug it in and read the outlet located above the shin of your right leg under the dashboard or steering wheel. Here is a link to a bunch of their products on amazon Actron and other OBDII Computer diagnostic code reader tools.

2004 Chrysler Sebring- Left turn signal problems


Sounds like a short in the wiring or fuse panel. As new as it is, I would suggest a mechanic as troubleshooting wiring in newer cars is not only difficult, but also dangerous. Many a shade-tree mechanic has set off the airbags that way!
