Check for12 volts at the obd2 port. I have found that it is tied in with the cigarette lighter fuse.

I have a 1998 contour se 4cyl. When you turn the key on check engine light doesn't come on and the fuel pump doesn't come on.


Check main power feed for the PCM - engine computer . Find free wiring diagrams an electrical distribution charts .At http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html also check the PCM power relay , powers up the engine computer . Relays do go bad . The PCM power relay is located in the under hood fuse / relay box an it is # K163 .

When I plug my scan tool into the computer of my 95 S10 jimmy, there is no communication. I tried replacing the omputer and got the same.


Okay, what you may have on your hands here is what has become known as an obd1.5 computer setup. Some of the 94's and 95's were made in anticipation of the switch to the obd2 set up. To determine if you fall in to this category locate your vehicle's computer. If it is under your hood in the engine compartment and you have two oxygen sensors and the port for your scanner fits an obd2 scanner then you have an obd2 system and your inability to link is either an electrical issue or something wrong with the computer itself.

If the computer is not in the engine compartment, you have one oxygen sensor, and the port for your scanner is rectangular you have an obd1 system.

If your computer is not in the engine compartment, you have one oxygen sensor and you have an obd2 scanner port you have an obd1.5.

Obd1 systems can be checked with an obd1 reader or much more easily with a paper clip or jumper wire. Just google something to effect of obd1 paper clip method. If there is still no communication once again you more than likely have an issue with your computer or electrical system.

If you have a true obd1.5 system do not fret there is still hope :) Yes there are some obd2 scanners that will work on these and there are some reportedly fancy obd1.5 code readers, however the easiest (and least expensive) way to pull the codes from this system is to use a modified version of the paper clip method. Instead of using your paper clip or jumper wires on terminals A&B, jump terminals 5&6.

Look at your scanner port. Count the terminals on the top row starting from the left. There should be connections in terminals 4, 5, and 6. Connect the jumper to terminals 5 and 6 and turn the key to the 'on' position (without turning the engine over). Your check engine light will flash. Each code will be two digits long and will flash three times (sort of like morse code). The first one will be a 1 and a 2, thus code 12. This code can be overlooked as it is just stating that the computer is being jumped. The codes that follow are the ones you should take note of.

These two digit codes correspond to the two digit obd1 codes. You can find their definitions on any number of websites. I personally prefer the haynes troublecode book though as it includes some make specific information.

Good Luck!

How do I clear the error codes on a 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel?


You will need a hand-held obd2 scanner to clear the codes. Advanced Auto store will do it for free if you have one in your area. Other part stores will also do it for free.
You can disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and replace it, but it doesn't always work. Sometimes the codes are stored in memory and require the hand-held obd2 to clear them

My car is a ford contour 2000 SE please i need help


You may experience a misfire if your car is noisy on gas,and is shaking on accelaration .
you might have to check on the injection system :injectors and injector wires. also a dirty MAF and a bad spark plug may cause it .
you may wanna get the code from a OBD2 device to know where the malfunction is .
good luck !

Have this checked with another scan tool. Link error is produced when the PCM fails to respond to the scan tool. More times than not this is the PCM failing.

Engine died, everything else normal. plugged obd2 in and it wont even turn the unit on. is the computer freid?


did you turn the ignition key on when you plugged in the obdII code reader? some of them need to get power from the dlc(diagnostic link connector) to work. it is possible the ecm(pcm) has failed but you could also have a bad ground for it. does the engine crank over? when you said everything else is normal, do all the dash lights and gauges come on before you try to start the engine? by the way the ecm/pcm is covered by federal emissions warranty for 8 years or 80k miles(except california).
