If you have a Autozone store near you you can have the numbers pulled from the computer then get back to us with the codes you have and we could tell you what it could be and that would cost you nothing, but we would need all the codes to help you figure out what is wrong.

1997 lincoln continental will not show the miles or any data by going through the systems check most data comes incomplete what would cause this to happen?

This is one you should take to a qualified repair shop ! The electronics involved , a factory scan tool needs to be hooked up to the vehicle !
Instrument Cluster-Electronic Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer's concern by operating the instrument cluster (10849) to duplicate the condition and by observing the indicators and gauges to determine if they are operating properly with the ignition switch:
    • in RUN with the engine OFF
    • in START before the ignition switch is released
    • in RUN with the engine running
  1. Inspect to determine if any of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    VISUAL INSPECTION CHART Mechanical Electrical
    • Damaged fuel tank.
    • Engine coolant level.
    • Engine oil level.
    • Washer fluid level.
    • Accessory drive belt.
    • Fuse Junction Panel Fuse:
      26 (10A), 28 (10A), 5 (10A).
    • Circuit wiring.
    • Switches or sensors.
    • Stuck fluid level sensor.
  1. If the inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with inspection and verification.
  1. If the concern remains after inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the virtual image instrument cluster , GO to Pinpoint Test C . If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, GO to Pinpoint Test D .
    If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the virtual image instrument cluster and lighting control module(s), retrieve continuous DTCs and execute Self Test Diagnostics for the virtual image instrument cluster and lighting control module(s) to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved for the virtual image instrument cluster, go to the Virtual Image Cluster (VIC) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics. If DTCs are retrieved for the lighting control module, go to the Lighting Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the virtual image instrument cluster cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test C . If the Refer Lighting Control Module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test D .
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
It's more then likely you need a new instrument cluster ,but you need to have it checked for any codes stored ! A obd2 code reader won't do it ! factory scan tool !

My accord will not reverse and my d lihgt is flashing.what is my problem?

This should be an indication that the PCM has detected a transmission issue. The transmission fluid level may be low, can you verify the level? Please read your owners manual for proper fluid type and follow the instructions to properly check the level. The car must be on level ground. You may need to send the car to the dealer for diagnostics if you don't find anything. Please let me know how you made out, good luck.

Does a light come on when needing transmission fluid and would it be the engine light?

Im not sure about suzuki but yes the trans can trigger a check engine light but im not sure if its reads low fluid level in the trans or not if the fluid level is good then there is another underlying problem take your car over to auto zone they will hook the diagnostic to it for free.

I have a warning light that came on today, looks like an engine but is lit solid not flashing, I checked the fuel cap and it is fine, should I stop driving it?

Maybe. did you check the oil, coolant level. automatic transmission fluid? The check engine light will come when your vehicle needs a major service; such as, Now, this an example, OK. Like change coolant, change the automatic transmission fluid, or change differential fluid, or it just needed 3 month, 6 months, 12 months service check up at the dealship. It could tell you even to rotate the tires.

When the check engine light comes on. you vehicle needs some type of preventive maintenance done to this Volkswagen Jetta. You need to get it check out and have them reset the check engine light. GB...stewbison

Service engine soon light

Check all your fluid levels. Oil, coolant, (only when engine is cool), brake fluid, also check that your fuel cap is on tightly. If these are all ok then you will have to have the vehicle checked for trouble codes via the cars on board diagnostic computer.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine

The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)

The service engine soon light is on. The check engine light had come on several times the day before. The check fluid light had come on & went off. Added 2 qts. of oil to the engine and it is fine....

Have the computer scanned if you want a quick scan have Auto Zone or the like scan it for free , they also will give you a printout of the problem code, if any, that may be stored in the computer system.
Trans. fluid is only checked on a running in park warm engine, if it is not running the fluid will read too high on the stick showing an overfilled condition, use only recommended fluid, should have the type requirements stamped on the transmision dip stick.
When filling do it slowly and add only half a quart at a time checking the level each time as to not over fill.
The trans. fluid and filter should be changed every 30,000 miles as preventive maintenance proceedures.
Hope this helps, good luck!!

Engine check light comes had it checked by dianostic reader it and it said was an open or short cicuit or low fluid level or shift solenoid valve but the car seems to run fine i drive it about 100 mile...

there is a technical service bulletin from toyota on this issue. the dealer needs to run some diagnostics, and there is an extended warranty that cover it, if you are within the age and mileage limits. the fix is to replace the PCM (computer). good luck!

2002 Hyundai Santa fe makes loud knocking sound around passenger side. The engine seems to work fine (no sputtering or lagging). There is oil and all other fluids are fine. The knocking sound is fairly...

Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
Go to and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
