    99 dodge avenger 2.5L V6 will not start at times and when it does it will run fine but without hesitation just shut off and wont restart for a period of time. I have replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, distributor, spark plugs, wires and drained and added full tank fuel with injector cleaner additive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Are you experiencing driveability problems but have no check engine light on? If so, what are the symptoms? Or, is the check engine light not lighting up at all, even for the bulb check sequence?

If there is no engine codes, then check engine light likely would not be on.
Check engine lights usually only go on if there is an electronical problem or faulty circuit or sensor.

I bought a 1995 ford crown victoria and it passed emissions but engine light went on and it's something with catalytic converter or oxygen sensors. How to figure out which is it


You'll need a shop manual and a scanner or code reader. A scanner would be better.
You would need to know what the trouble codes are, get the diagnostic charts for the codes, and use the scanner to see the data stream from the sensors. The engine computer uses the O2 sensors to monitor the efficency of the cat and fuel mixture.

Someone would need to clear the trouble codes with a scanner or code reader. If the problem is fixed, the light should stay off.
If the code comes back, you may have a leak somewhere else in the venting system.

2006 pt cruiser. check engine light comes on, automatic transmission will not shift out of 2nd gear. does not do it all the time though. Computer Problem?


The check engine light means there is a trouble code has occured.Even if the problem clears itself,the code is still stored as a history code.if you want to know what that code is,you can buy a cheap code scanner for about 50 bucks.I bought one out of the Harbor Freight catalog made buy Cen-Tech.It comes with a code book that only gives you engine trouble codes,but the scanner will also read transmission codes(I have to do a Google search on these to know what they are).Hey,it was cheap! This thing has paid for itself 10 times already!

The check engine light came on just need to know how to get it to go off


The problem that the check engine light is reporting will have to be fixed, for the light to remain off. Have the trouble codes read to find out what the problem is. Then, the light can be reset with a code scanner and should remain off if no trouble codes exist.

Yellow light on dash, emissions workshop warning


Volkswagen vehicles built after 1996 are equippedwith a system of sensors known as On Board Diagnostics (OBD II). These sensorsmonitor many vital engine functions and help to lower harmful emissions. Whenone of these sensors fails it sends a signal to the engine computer to illuminate the "CheckEngine" light in the dash. To clear this light you will need a diagnosticcode scanner. Scanners range in price from $40 to $120 and are available atmost auto parts stores.

1. Connect the diagnostic code scanner to the vehicle's diagnostic port. Theport will be located in the dash below the heater controls.. 2. Turn the key to the"Run" position, but do not start the engine. 3. Press the button on thescanner that reads "Scan for trouble codes." 4. Wait for the scanner to finishscanning the engine's computer. 5. Press the button on thescanner labeled "Clear all trouble codes." 6. Disconnect the diagnostic codescanner from the vehicle.

How to turn off check engine light in 98 740il


All cars marketed in the U.S. in the year 1996 and later have to have a standard OBD-II connector inside the car under the dash on the driver's side.

With an OBD-II Scanner one can scan the codes that are indicating trouble in the engine.

After repairs are made, the light can be turned off by pressing the 'erase code' button on the scanner.

If one is experiencing an intermitent code, the code may be turned off with the 'erase code' button on the scanner to temporarily turn the check engine light off, until circumstances make the light turn back on.

How do I reset the Check Engine Light on a 2005 Ford Taurus? The system check says everything is OK. Previously, a dirty air filter caused the light to come on. I replaced it (it was somewhat dirty.) but...


only way to clear is with a scanner. The scanner will also give you the codes so it can be diagnosed. If its an emission issue your warrenty should cover it.

Check engine light and esc light comes on no driving power


Replace the brake/stop lamp switch at the brake pedal, also check for trouble codes. Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' 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 codes which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
