This would all depend on your car. if it is 96 and up...stop by most big retail part stors (like autozone, pep boys, vip) they will scan it for you for free most times, just to read the code.

Misfire but no check engine light mazda mpv


Scanning tells a lot. But if your not getting an engine light. Check vacuum lines first. But if you turn the key on and don't see the light. it blew or someone took it out. Then yes, start with having the codes read.

Annon, engine light on means there is a fault, take into a good shop and have vehicle scanned, codes retrieved, diagnosed and estimate for repair.

Engine turns over but will not start.


Hi there:

When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.


Just scanned the computer and send us code number find it.

Hope helps.

Went i turn the key the engine light go out right away


I hope it does and you do too. If the check engine light does'nt go out right away it means theirs something wrong or has been and the computer is checking to see if it's a problem atr the moment. If thier hasn't been any problems and thier aren't any problems at start up the light should go out right away. If your talking about the oil light it also will go out as soon as the engine turns just a little, It shows that the one way valve in the oil filter is holding and as soon as the pump turns any theirs pressure. Thats good too. As far as the check engine light goes if you turn the key on without starting the engine three times and leave it on the third time the check engine light will flash out the codes or the odometer display will tell the codes or display no cdes stored if their aren't any depending on the model year. If you were to say the make year and model I'd tell you the exact answer. before 1987 they didn't flash out the codes and had tobe disnosed with a test light and an OHM meter. trucks did'nt do it till 89 93 they went OBDII and the odometer displayed the code and the basic name of the problem the code stands for.

I have a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I love the jeep. I have 380,000 original miles on her and never had any problems. BUT.. When I go to start it now all it does is turn over. Will not start. If I...


If the check engine light comes on then there must be a trouble code stored in the PCM memory. What is the code when you turn the key on,off,on ,off... then leave it on....count the engine light blinks. (Don't start the engine during the key procedure) each series of blinks will be a digit.

The key symbol appears


That's your immobilizer system light:
The Immobilizer System protects your car from theft. A properly coded master or valet key must be used in the ignition switch for the engine to start.
If an improperly coded key (or other device) is used, the engine’s fuel system is disabled.
When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), the Immobilizer System indicator should come on for a few seconds, then go out. If the indicator starts to blink, it means the system does not recognize the coding of the key. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert it, and turn the switch to ON (II) again.
The system may not recognize your key’s coding if another immobilizer key or other metal object is near the ignition switch when you insert the key. To make sure the system recognizes the key code:
Do not keep other immobilizer keys on the same key ring.
Use a plastic or leather key fob, not metal.
Keep other keys away from your vehicle’s key and the ignition switch while trying to start the engine.
Do not attempt to alter this system or add other devices to it. Electrical problems could result that may make your car undriveable.
This indicator will also blink several times when you turn the ignition switch from ON (II) to ACCESSORY (I) or LOCK (0).
If the system repeatedly does not recognize the coding of your key, contact your Honda dealer.
If you have lost your key and you cannot start the engine, contact your Honda dealer.
Hope this lets you understand the light, and what should be happening.

Check engine light is on.


Turn the key from off to on 5 times and the van will display the P codes on the odometer display. Google those codes and you should find the cause of you problem or an indication of where to start anyway. Some codes don't go away until you unplug the battery.

Engine light on dash stays on.


There are two lights you may be getting confused. There is the check engine light and the maintanence required light. The maint req. light can be manually reset by holding down the trip meter button then turning your ignition key forward. You have to hold the button down until the light goes away.
If it is the check engine light you should run a daignostic check for the listed codes.

Car losing power and turning off


if your car is 2003+ try turning the key to run (but not crank) then to acc. 3 times and the engine codes will show up on the odometer, then you can look up what those codes are to help diagnose some of the problems.
