I don't know of anyone that rents scanners, but you can buy one at most auto parts stores for well under $100. Many major chain auto parts stores will check your codes for free and also tell you what the likely culprit is.

A good example of this is Auto Zone and Advance Auto.

If you purchase a Actron scanner, they have a website for looking up DTC definitions.

Go to Auto Zone or Advance auto and they will read them for free. They will also tell you what they mean. If you want to look them up later you can look them up at http://www.2carpros.com/kpages/diagnostic_trouble_codes.htm

"Check engine" light while everything runs fine


That truck had and OBDII connector under the dash on the driver side . The only was to retrieve the code is with a scanner some parts stores have a small code code tool . You said that their are no Mechanics so you may not have parts stores. You can buy cheap OBD-2 code reads of the web ... they are universal for all cars newer then 1997 if you get one of these and pull the codes and come back to this site i can tell what the codes mean so we can diagnois you engine light .

Service engine light is on how to reset it


As far as I know, on that year vehicle, the only way to clear the service light is to use an OBD-II Scanner. You should be able to rent one from your local auto parts store, purchase one, or bring it to a mechanic or dealer. I always rent one, plug it into my vehicle and check for codes. The code will tell you what turned the light on to begin with. This must be fixed before you can reset the light. Once the repair is made, there is an option on the scanner to clear the service light. You can just reset the light without repairs but, be ready for the light to come on again.

2000 chrysler concorde check engine light came on, dash lighs flash and transmission wont shift any ideas?


It sounds like you have a problem with your security system if you mean that it won't allow you to shift out of park. BUT you should start off getting the engine error code read so you will know what the car is trying to tell you. Anytime you get a check engine light, the vehicle generates an error code.

Since you probably can't drive it, you need to rent, borrow or buy an OBDII scanner and get that code, so it gives you a clue on where to begin the troubleshooting process.

Ok you should use a code reader to clear the code. It can be rented at the auto parts store. The pontiac G6's have an issue with the catalytic converter this may need to be replaced. Try the dealership as with less 60k miles it may be a free replacement.

2002 Chevy Venture service engine soon light stays on..


Rent a scanner and do it yourself. If the scanner only delivers codes, you need a chart that tells what the codes mean. Follow the clues to repair the ailing components. The scanner can clear the light when the repairs are complete.
