Go to your local autozone or advance auto. They will scan the codes for you. Write down the codes, then google them. The OBD-II codes are based on a universal chart, with only a few exceptions. You can also post back here, and someone here will teach you what each code you encounter means, and suggest solutions to take care of the issues.

Check engine light flashing means you have catayltic converter damaging misfire . Don't know where you came up with 7e9 code . This has nothing to do with OBD2 and isn't a code . WithYour lack knowledge of this basic stuff ,your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

How to get rid off check engine light in 04 Suzuki Forenza

A check engine light means there is a mechanical failure with the vehicle, and should not be ignored. Most part stores will read check engine light codes for you for free, and tell you what they mean. The only way to turn this code off is with a diagnostic tool they use. If you have already fixed the problem find a local parts store in your area that offers free check engine light diagnostics and ask them to read the does and turn the light off for you.
