On these models there are 2 ALDL's. 1 is a Nissan 2 adapter and the other is a OBD2 adapter. Chances are you will need to use the specific Nissan adapter to gain access.

What is a scan tool


A scan tool allows for the OBD II (On Board Diagnostics) codes to be read from the engine computer in a car. These are common electronic diagnostics tools used by automotive technicians. They are usually used when a check engine light comes on to determine the error codes associated with the check engine light.


They almost always connect via a standard plug on the divers side under the dash.


Most automotive parts supplier will check a car with complementary service to determine the codes stored in a customers automobile.

Volvo xc90, warning comes up ''engine service required'' then loss of power until warning goes off.


Hi.

The loss of power can be caused by a big number of different fault. A code reading would be a good first step to troubleshoot the fault.

If the check engine light comes on, then engine faults have been detected and related codes have been stored in the vehicle's computer modules. Primary DTC (trouble codes) are stored in the main computer (called ECU). Such codes can be read using an OBDII code reader connected to the socket under the dash. Here a code reader: U480 Can Bus.

A code scanning can also be performed at the dealer place or at any garage. In US it can be done for free at the nearest Autozone.

If there is no indicative codes also test the fuel pump and pressure regulator by reading fuel pressure with a gauge connected to the port on the fuel rail. Here the tool: Wilmar W80594.

Regards.

The check engine light is on my 1995 Saab 900s. I can not find a techician with the correct scanner.How can I turn off the light?


There are three ways to reset a check engine light.

1. Disconnect the battery, wait approximately 30 minutes, reconnect the battery. This resets the cars computer which also reset the check engine light. On newer OBD (on-board diagnostic) compliant vehicles this usually does not work. See step 2.

2. Reset using an OBD II reader. When you hook an OBD II code reader up to your vehicle, you can reset the computer using the code reader.

3. Fixing the problem. Generally the check engine light comes on for a reason. Usually it is emission related (sensors, gas cap) or electrical (faulty wiring). In this case the way to reset the check engine light is to fix the problem

Where do i plug in a code reader on a 1993 lincoln town car?


flyersqod, I believe that you have an OBD II code reader which is what is being sold to the public. OBD II starts with vehicles that were manufactured in 1996 and later and it mandated that all vehicles have a universal plug-in adapter to accommodate the scanners. Pre-1996 vehicles had a different plug-in for their respective makes. GM, Ford and Chrysler as well as all the foreign models all had different plug-ins. This is the case with your 1993 Town Car. The plug-in for your vehicle is located in the engine compartment and has two plugs on it. This cannot be accessed by an OBD II reader. If you want your vehicle scanned you will have to take it somewhere that has an OBD I scanner. Good luck with this.

How do i read the trouble code on a 94 passport without a scanner


This is not possible without an error code reader Unless you have check engine or service engine light Then you can hotwire the port for connecting scanner
and it will flash the code to you using the check engine light on dash
But its quicker to use a reader.
Different car models you can get to flash codes to you contact you car dealer to enquire about it.

Does the code reader power up? If not, check the fuses. OBD II ports supply power to the code reader. Typically GM uses the cigarette lighter fuse to power the OBD II port on their vehicles (could share a fuse with somthing else, but I doubt it). Good luck!

The code scanner that you need is called ODBII code reader with ABS, and it works in the same way as the one that you connect to the car computer module (ECU) to read codes when the check engine light comes on, but the cheap ones that you can buy from $50 do not have the ABS brake scan function.

If the problem is the ABS, then it is often a wiring to abs problem, or a defective ABS control module, a scan reading is necessary to know what the problem is.
