You have a short in your wiring, If you look under the rear of your vehicle you will see that the wires all lead to a plug. Remove the harnesses and see if there is any corrosion , you may have to replace the block all so check all the ground leads for rust.

Engine light come on after a min


Hi there:
The four most common Check Engine Light scenarios and what to do:

* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Pay attention at the self-read Jeep codes procedure, note the code numbers there and send it us for additional details:
- put key in ignition
- push and hold the odometer/trip mileage button (the little black one that comes out of the gauge cluster)
- turn the key to the "ON" position (where all the electronics turn on / do not start the Jeep, just turn it to "ON" three times...
ON / OFF / ON / OFF / ON
- Check odometer and note the Pxxxx codes showed there.

Additionally, if you have some Autozone or Autoshop early, they could make this job for free (sometimes) with OBD Scanner Reader Tool.

Hope this helps

My 92 Caddy Deville has reverse lights that stay on while I'm driving, how do I get them to turn off?


Hello: The back up lights get 12volts through the neutral safety switch. This is mounted on the top of the transmission on the drivers side. The switch could be out of adjustment and or failed or the wiring could be bad. To check te wiring disconnect both connectors on the switch, turn key on engine off apply park brake put transmission in drive and check to see if the reverse lights are on.

I have a 2001 chev s10 it has the service engine soon light and the scanner does not read it.how can i turn it off.


Try this... turn ignition key to "ON" setting without starting engine.
Pump the accelerator pedal three times rapidly. The light should go off.
I have used this on my Chev and GM vehicles after doing an oil change myself and it always works.
