Hi:
The check engine light comes on with the key on, to let you know the bulb is good. Often, if a car has a problem, an unscrupulous seller will pull the bulb. The bulb is cheap, but often tricky to get at to swap. It would be important to get a good bulb installed, but then get your car scanned at a local auto parts store to see if any codes are stored..

Code 0456


You mean check engine light? If so, the P0456 code is an emmisions leak code. You will need to take the vehicle to a qualified repair facility and have them run an emmisions leakage test on it.

My 2009 Ford Escape remote starter....i click and it beeps once..then beeps three times. Will not start or turn over engine. What does this mean or is there quick fix?.....been working good for 3 yrs.


By some strange reason it happens also if the instrument panel dim light is all way up and you have to keep your dome light switch off or it will light even if all doors are shut. I put the dim light switch into normal position and my remote starter resumed its function! Thanks to F150 forum, I found this remedy there: 2010 REMOTE START

97 Buick Lesabre, had emmisions test done (which it passed) as soon as leaving emmisions test check engine light came on. Any ideas what may have caused this?


Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE OBII scan. It will read all your fault codes and more than likely light came on because of emission test. But have them read the faults and reset your light.

Beeps coming from over by the glove box after turning engine off.


the beeps are an airbag trouble code, that code is for the following:
In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

What year is your car and what engine? That makes a lot of difference. What the pulses should indicate is a code 12 is stored (code 55 is usually an "all clear" code, meaning that the ECU is done reading out the codes that are stored). If you got only a 55, it would mean you have no codes. 1255 means that 12 is the only code you have stored.
