Thats your on board computer telling you that all is fine with your car. if there is trouble,it will blink as you stated,then be followed by a series of erratic blinks,these are called trouble codes,and tell you what part is going bad.

it is the microchip on your key.. you have to reset the key by sticking it into your ignition and turn it to the run position for 5 mins. at this time the light should stop blinking then turn your key to the off position for 1 sec. repeat six times then your last attempt the car would start guarantee.... notice: as you turn the key to run position the light would blink rapidly for 5mins.. right when it stops turn to the off position for 1 sec.. remember six times..

My 1995 Mercedes 420E bucks like if it is running out of gas!! but the engine never stop running. I have put it in shop 3 time now!!! I get the same answer very time if the check engine light don't come on...


Sounds as if the engine control module has gone bad. Here's the funny part if the engine control module is faulty it will never know its faulty so it may never turn on the check engine light. The throttle actuator and the air flow meter can also cause driveability problems with the M119 engine. You should be able to pull blink codes from the 8 or 12 pin connector next to the battery. pull the little cover off the connector that sits on the firewall. With the key in position 2 and the engine not running push the little button in for 3 seconds and watch and count how many times it flashes. If it flashes only once then that means no faults. If it flashes more than once then count the blinks and repeat holding for 3 seconds to see if there's more then one codes. This is checking the codes of the DM (diagnostic module) it should have a code if the engine control module is faulty. All this is assuming that all the initial step have been taken like checking distributor cap,rotor,plugs,wires and vacuum leaks.

I have had the timing belt and kit replaced on my car along with a sensor and my check engine light will not go off so that i can pass the required emissions test for my state


you need to access the trouble code to better define the problem. insert key into ignition. you will need to turn the key to the position just before the engine cranks; the dash lights will be on. now turn the key back one click. You need to do this a total of 3 times ending in the on position( dash lights on-not cranking). Your trouble code will either show on the odometer( if it's digital) or will blink on the check engine light. count the number of blinks-pause-blinks etc. jot the numbers down. You can google the numbers to see what system is at fault.

I have a 95 gmc 350 half ton and my check engine light comes on when I am on the highway and goes off when I drive at lower speeds. I am also getting poor gas mileage.


Most likely a bad egr valve. Take a paper clip. Jump pins A to B at the 12 pin diagnostic connector. (Top right pair wires in the connector - or - Lower left pair of wires depending on orientation) Turn key on. Count the "blinks" of the check engine light. All codes are 2-digit. Short blinks are the ones digit and long blinks are the tens digit. EACH CODE REPEATS 3 TIMES AND THE GOES TO THE NEXT CODE SET. You will get code "12" first..."b l i n k- blink-blink" It will repeat 3 times. I bet the next code will be "32" EGR system malfunction

How do we get the check engine oil light off of a 1999 chevy 6 liter


First turn the key to the run position, (not start). Push the gas pedal down to the floor 3 times within five seconds. Turn the key off and then cycle back on and start the truck. The indicator should flash five times and go out.
It may take a few tries.

Stops while driving


this is usually due to a dirty throttle body. just beware if you do try to clean it you will need to preform the idle relearn procedure. this does work, ive done it personally.

A. Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning Procedure.
1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds (how would you know if you get it right?)


B. Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning
1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.
3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound (i never get this right because i never heard anything)

C. Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)
It's best to time with a watch/clock.

1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.
2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops
blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11 Wait 20 seconds
12Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications. (this is fine because SES light lets you know if you did it right the way it blinks)
