Why won 't computer communicate with code checker

Check the cigarette lighter fuse. This is what powers the DLC. If the fuse is good, check and see if the lighter works. If not, you have a bad wire. Code readers have to have power from the car. Most scanners have there own power and will read the computer, unless the data wire is bad or the computer is bad.

Car won t go into gear

If you mean shifter does not come out of park check and see if you have brake lights if not check brake light switch. If you mean it goes into drive and does not move the transmission is the problem

My vehicle was moving then later indicate neutral and stop I try to engage the gear but the vehicle won't move why

If the gear indicator changed to neutral without you doing anything, I would say the transmission selector switch has failed. The switch tells the computer what position the shifter is in.

Fail safe engine mode light pops on after driving a while. What does this mean?

It means your vehicle has an emissions or driveability fault code stored in the computer's memory. Fail safe will disable cruise control and possibly overdrive to prevent component damage. It also allows the vehicle to run on factory pre-programmed parameters so that you won't be stranded-depending on the problem.

Speedometer stopped working and trans won't shift out of low gear. brake light came on at same time. replaced vehicle speed sensor but it didn't fix it

Hi! bigdowgi
Transmission is tide into the speed sencor somehow. I will have to look up some specs and get back with you. check your fuses in the mean time. Hope you at least have a test light. You may be able to do some test yourself, with a voltmeter. Hopefully you have checked the transmission for ATF fluid.
Some time it can be somthing real simple.

My intrepid suddenly won't shift out of 1st and the auto stick won't work. I assume it's something with the transmission. Is this expensive to fix

Sorry but these vehicles are notorious for bad transmisions, unfortunately it will cost you more than the car is worth to have another transmision put in it.

What does it mean when the "Hold" indicator light comes up?

Hi, the hold light refers to the hold button on the shifter module. It means the transmission holds the lower gear revving up the rpms and won't shift to the higher gear. Seeing the light means the button has been engaged. Push it to turn it off.........

2nd Strt light

From my understanding it is as a result of you pushing the 2nd start button near the gear lever - ? it means the car takes off in 2nd rather than 1st
