I disconnected the battery and pressed on the brake pedal and pushed on the horn to drain all the stored power from the capacitor, then I pulled each fuse one by one checking each of them, and then I used a relay tester to check all of the relays, then after about a half an hour I reconnected the battery. Now my car is in learn mode and will adapt to my driving style, and it runs like new

The fault codes will have to be cleared using some kind of diagnostic machine and plugging it into the 16 diag connector that sits just below the radio at the bottom of the centre dash panel, hope this helps

My Mitsubishi colt automatic car runs fine but light comes on fault code 1867 I cleared fault but as soon as you switch off engine and back on again the light stays on again


How did you clear the fault? By using a code reader and clearing it or by disconnecting the battery? That only erased the fault from the ECM memory. That fault code is specific to Mitsubishis, so I have no idea what it means. But if the problem that set the code originally has not been corrected, it will set the code (and turn on the light) as soon as you try to use the car again.

How to clear check engine light


You need a scan tool to clear codes.

But doing this is a pointless exercise as the CE warning light will come back next time you drive the vehicle unless you deal with the problems that are generating the fault codes and CE in the first place.

If you have replaced parts (because some one told you XYZ fault code = replace ABC part) you thought were causing the problems and you are still getting the CE and fault codes then your diagnosis of the problem was completely wrong.

84 gmc truck,6cyl 250 ecm fault code 15,open coolant sensor,,repaced sensor ecm will not clear fault. why not?


Wild guess, connecting wires are bad, possibly break in wire? Is coolant level ok? Clearing codes are sometimes tricky. I keep haveing to relearn how to clear. Disconnecting battery overnight may clear, but usually bother's radio security code.

How do I fix code 13 engine speed sensor Above 1000 rpm


Clearing the codes is simple that is done by removing the fuse of the EFI from junction box 2 for 10 seconds. Make sure to remove the jumper wire and switch the key off before clearing the codes.

Here are some common Lexus vehicles 1990-1995 codes:

Code 12 and Code 13 Rpm signal circuit fault
Code 14 Igniter signal circuit fault
Code 16 ECT control signal fault
Code 21 and Code 28 Main oxygen sensor fault (for ES300; SC300 & GS300 models)
Code 22 Coolant temperature circuit fault
Code 24 Intake temperature sensor circuit fault
Code 25 and Code 26 Air fuel ratio fault (for ES300 & SC300 models)
Code 27 Sub-oxygen sensor circuit fault (for ES300 CA & GS300 models)
Code 31 Low airflow meter voltage (for ES300 and GS300 models)
Code 32 High airflow meter voltage (for ES300 model)
Code 35 Barometric pressure sensor circuit fault (for GS300 & SC300 models)
Code 41 and Code 47 Throttle position sensor circuit fault
Code 42 Vehicle speed sensor circuit fault
Code 43 Starter signal
Code 51 Switch condition signal fault (for ES300; GS300 & SC300 models)
Code 52 Code 52 and Code 55 Knock sensor circuit fault
Code 71 EGR system circuit fault (for ES300; GS300 & SC300 models)

This Greg thanks . how do I clear the code?


Clearing Codes

Print
Stored faults should only be cleared by use of the DRB-II or similar scan tool. Disconnecting the battery will clear codes but is not recommended as doing so will also clear all other memories on the vehicle and may affect driveability. Unplugging the PCM connector will also clear codes, but on newer models it may store a power loss code and will affect driveability until the vehicle is driven and the PCM can relearn its driveability memory.
The -ERASE- screen will appear when ATM is pressed at the end of the stored faults. Select the desired action from ERASE or DON'T ERASE. If ERASE is chosen, the display asks ARE YOU SURE- Pressing ENTER erases stored faults and displays the message FAULTS ERASED. After the faults are erased, press ATM to return the FUEL/IGN MENU.

My engine and abs lights are on. I replaced the rear ABS sensor, then replaced both front speed sensors!!! Now have codes C-1145 and C-1175 and P-1000!!


C1145 is a Right Front wheel speed sensor fault
C1175 is a Left rear wheel speed sensor fault.
P1000 System OBD check not complete since last memorie clear which mostlikely means that the car has not completed the drive cycle to set all monitors for the engine emissions. ( it may just need to be driven a more.
As for the wheel speed sensors if you have replaced them the ABS codes need to be cleared. the engine code reader and clearing tool will not do it. A scanner with ABS capabilities is needed. On some cars if you disconnect the battery and wait 3 mins then re connect the battery, that will clear all codes. then the car needs to be driven to set all monitors for engine emissions.
If you have already cleared the codes. and you have repete same codes for the ABS, you would need to look the wireing over for possible wire rubs that are causing the faults. or the ABS computer itself is at fault.

How do i reset service light


The light is indicating a fault. The computer stores the faults codes, and a scanner can extract the codes and clear them, if desired. Recommend you get the codes before clearing them.

If you have already obtained the codes and effected repairs, the system will rerun diagnostics as you drive and will clear any fault codes that are no longer detected.

If you have more questions, please let us know.
