The other day I turned on my car and my dashboard lit up with my check engine light, my EML light and my yellow brake light. Turning car off, then on, they disappeared. Then later re-appeared.


code p 0117 refers to engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --coolant thermostat, wiring short to ground --wiring short to positive ---ECT sensor

code p 0440 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) system--malfunction===causes hose connection/s---intake leak/s --EVAP canister purge valve

code p 1508 refers to idle speed control (ISC) actuator --open coil--open circuit ===causes --wiring--connections ---ISC actuator---ECM
as there are no common items between the three codes
I would be inclined to find an accredited service center that works on your make of car to have the codes and listed possible causes checked out

Hi all...I was stuck in a horrible traffic jam 4 2 hours...in which 1 1/2 hrs were less than 5 mph. My truck is a 2003 Ford Escape. My radio went out then the lights started 2 dim and a brake light came...


I suppose its possible the alternator stopped charging the battery enough at the low engine speed but then worked on the way home.
The alternator will charge 12 - 13 volts at idle, but you could have enough accessories and the cooling fan running to use more voltage or amps than it is producing. Stopping at a traffic light for a couple of minutes does not hurt anything since the battery is usually fully charged. But idling for an hour or more with everything on could run the battery down.
You might want to have the computer checked for codes even tho the check engine light may not have been on. Also have the alternator and battery tested again to see if something happened while in heavy traffic.

Error code 340 & 457


  • P0340 - Camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction.
  • P0457 - Evaporative emission control system leak detected (fuel filler cap loose/off)

    There is a bulletin #0398 posted on 05/12/2003 for P0457 - Malfunction indicator lamp (mil) illumination with diagnostic trouble codes p0442, p0455, p0456, p0457, p1442 or check fuel cap lamp illuminated with diagnostic trouble code p0457.

I'd suggest checking with your local dealer, as it may be a fix that is covered by the dealer.

98 ford escort check engine light is on the code comes up p1506 how do i fix


This code refers to the Idle Air Control Overspeed Error, I would clean the IAC, and if cleaning does not work I would replace it. It is located directly on top of the throttle valve on the intake manifold. Hope this helps, let me know.

I had my check engine light come on & the code is a P1259 /fuel and air metering issue. Does anyone know what part this code is referring to that may need replaced? The car is running okay. However...


I suggest replacing the O2 sensor(s). These detect the level of carbon monoxide in the exhaust, and at a certain level the exhaust is then returned to the engine to be reburned, then sent back through the exhaust, catalytic converter, then the muffler.

Take the code type to an auto parts dealer, and verify what the code is specifically referring to.

If the engine was idling (running) rough, also repalce the air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs<-- find out gap setting; plug wires, distributor cap and rotor (if equipped).

Also, if you haven't recently had the fluids changed, have them changed as well, as the filters for each and the gaskets if needed.

NOTE: if you smell an unusual smell coming from your car; the smell of rotten eggs or such, then your catalytic converter may need replaced.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
