I just failed my N.J. state inspection for the following reason. Can you help? The white back-up lights stay on at all times. I checked the b/u light fuse and found it to be good. Any ideas what I can check next.

The back up light switch is shorted.

it is usually located at the transmission . when you put it in reverse, it should turn on the back up lights, but if it is no longer in reverse, it should cut off the light, so it must have been shorted that is why the reverse light is always on.

i hope i solve your problem...

tnx,

The transmission switch that powers the reverse light switches is stuck in the ON position, this is quite a common fault.
The switch is mounted on the transmission casing near where the selector rods enter the casing on a manual shift and in the selector housing on automatic cars.

Air bag light stays on 2006 lincoln town car


This indicates a fault in the system. You should have it checked and repaired. Many states that perform safety inspections and / or emissions testing will fail a vehicle with this trouble indicated on the dash or when connected to the vehicle computer.

It gives me acode p1495 and check engine light stays on and also it gives me code0455 please help me


P0445= Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Shorted
P1495= Leak detection pump solenoid circuit

both of these codes are just emission codes and are nothing to really worry about if you can live with the engine light being on all the time they won't hurt engine in any way and you won't notice any change in the way the van runs
there really only two reasons to fix this
1. you can't stand engine light being on
2. you live in a state with smog laws that require routine inspections

Engine check light is on always now when engine is running,how ever car runs fine.car has a 170,000 miles on engine.


Any time you have a check light or any other lights. You have a possible system failure,and need to have it checked for a possible code,then diagnosed and repaired.

If you have inspection in your state,it will fail

Not to be hurtfull,but,these sort of lights have been on most all vehicles for 30 years.
There is no reason, anyone owning a vehicle, shouldn't have an owners manual,and be aware of the vehicles operation,as far as check lights.

This was brought about 30 years ago,in the US at least,as part of a program, to reduce exhaust emissions.

Check engine light is on- reason- Evap emission control system malfunction- code PO440


Causes: A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
* The gas cap is not installed or working properly
* The purge solenoid has failed
* The canister is plugged and not working properly

Possible Solutions: With a P0440 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
* Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
* Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
* Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
* Check and/or replace the sensor
* Check and/or replace the purge valve
* Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks

Hope helps (remember to rate this).

I have a 2001 Santa Fe and the Engine light is lit and has been for many years. When I took the vehicle for the State Inspection I was told that the Co2 needed to be changed so the light would come off and...


The best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and get your Hyundai scanned for a DTC code. That would tell us which O2 sensor has gone bad. You have three O2 sensors and one of them has gone bad, the O2 sensor sends signals to the ecm to control the air fuel mixture so it will not run to rich or to lean which is causing you to fail the state inspection. Good luck and keep me posted on what the DTC codes are, be glad to help.

Check engine light


I found that my check engine light comes on when I fail to turn the gas cap two clicks. It has something to do with the air . After I paid $50 for one of those diagnostics, I always make sure when it comes on to check if my husband failed to click the gas cap, correct the problem and the check engine light goes out before I have to gas up the next time and will stay off as long as I am the sole driver.
