Check diagnostic connector pin 16 (see picture below), if should show constant battery voltage, if there is no power there the code reader can't read the codes, the pin 16 is powered up by the cigar lighter fuse in most GM's

Cant locate ecm fuse


The fuses for the computer are in the box near the battery. Not sure why you need them, if you are trying to turn the check engine light off you have to clear the trouble codes with a scanner.

I cant get the service engin light to go off,


If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

180,000 miles & check engine light is on. Already had vehicle checked.


the check engine light comes on whenever one or more of about 200 faults occur in the electronic engine or emmision controls, the only way to determine which system is causeing the problem is to have the system computer tested for the trouble code(s) that is stored when the light is turned on by the computer, which is known as the PCM

Service soon engine light is on and it wont go off.


Did you have the computer checked to see what code or codes come up? If not and you have an Advanced Auto store near by they check computer codes for free. They hook up their code reader and it shows the code or codes and lists what the code means.

Malfunction indicator lamp is on


i had same problem .. the echo depends on a good seal for the gas cap .. it draws a slight vacuum (or maybe pressure) to test the seal .. if it cant develop the vacuum then it sets the alarm light .... in my case a small crack in the rubber seal of the gas cap caused the problem .. a new gas cap resolved it .. it takes a while to clear the code .. maybe a few starts .. its also a good idea to clean up the mouth of the gas filler tube ..if its rusty or dirty then you cant get a good seal .. wd40 does a nice job of cleaning .. the new gas cap was only a few dollars at advanced auto but lacks the teather strap

the diagnostic scan at autozone does not narrow it down .. it just indicates something like "faulty polution control device" .. or maybe it was an even more generic term .. cant remember ..but not much help ..

in other cars (caravan) the oxygen sensor frequently seems to be the cause of the alarm.. .. the scanner does flag that ..
