Hi

this could be a number of things the ECM light is an ecu reporting error, put the car on a daignostic machine and get the fault code reading then get back to me and I will tell you what it is. It could be so many things so really the diagnostic engine check is the best way.

Regards

Dan

    Hi

    the most likely 2 faults are the ECM it's self or "electronic control module" or the EGR valve. It is difficult to say without a diagnostic code, send me the code and I can give you the exact fault.

The meaning of that wrench symbol near the service is an common indication that there is some problem with your car reported in the computer and stored the cars computer in the form of codes.You can run a scan toll on your cars computer and get the exact codes . The codes will indicate the exact fault on your car and we can proceed changing the part or take corrective measures against it.

    Do you mean you are not able to get the code due to security?

    This was your opening statement there is no code mentioned here except the statement "the code read ECM or Security or theft on the analyzer."

    Can you please specify the code again.

    The security cannot be disabled by just removing any fuse and we should not provide the ways to disarm security without proper authorization.

1992 saturn sl2 will run if service engine light comes on when turning key to start car. when it does start and run if the service engine light flickers or comes on the fuel pump relay will click and car...


This may just be a problem with the wiring of the car's ECU. It could be a loose wiring. The ECU may be receiving power intermittently. It could also be just an issue with the EFI relay. The ECU signal from the EFI is intermittent causing the flickering and the clicking sound.

Coolant message,n reduced engine power light is on, wont start


Your battery is too weak to turn the starter. The starter takes much more power than the lights or anything else.

Reduced power for real!!!!


There is a fault somewhere on the vehicle which has triggered the engine management system to limit engine power to minimize damage.If you have breakdown cover and live in the Uk then call them.You need a computerised diagnosis of the engine.If you live locally then mail me at heeman453@hotmail.com and I will assist you further.

Saturn '99 SL2 erratic tickover on idle


Idle problem most likey a Coolant Temp sensor & connector.Cam covers very common to leak around the sides & down into the spark plug holes.Also all saturn s-series 1.9 engine consume oil.Most 1qt. per 1500 miles some more some less.Service Engine Lamp has nothing to do with regular maintenance.It's a malfunction indicator lamp.If it's on there is Trouble codes stored in the ECM.Auto zone free scan with printout.Hope that helps
