I'm new to this website, have a problem with my '93 Dakota, 5.2L but thought I'd post to your question.

The readers would need more information than what you supplied.

On my Dakota, to check the CEL(Check Engine Light), cycle the ignition switch to RUN-OFF-RUN-OFF-RUN, then count the flashes of the CEL. There will be a distinct pause between each set of 2 number flashes, finally ending with a code of 55 signaling the end of the code display.

Some of the codes will keep the CEL lit all the time, while others will store but not light the CEL when running.
If you post the codes you see, and look them up, it might give you (and the reaers here) a better idea of your problem.

When i drive the car the check eng light comes on then in a bit it will go out I check for code's but there's no code's?


You can only check the code whilst the light is on. Leave the code reader plugged in. When the light comes on, pull over if safe to do so and read the code reader.

I had a similar thing on my Lexus. It was a thermostat sensor that was telling the engine stayed hotter than it should for a while until the thermostat opened.

Check engine light on with the TPS code. replaced TPS and pig tail and it checked out OK with volt meter. The light still comes back on with the TPS code


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.


For more help, I suggest you to refer the help links provided below. These will let you know more about which areas to look, check, when there is engine light coming up on dash panel.

Need more Truck speed


Have you tried checking the fault codes? That year truck and that engine should do way better. The ECM incorporates a diagnostic program which, when activated, will flash codes stored in the trouble code memory through the "CHECK ENGINE" lamp. A diagnostic connector, located under the instrument panel, is used to activate the self-diagnosis system. The connector,allows access to system circuits and contains a test terminal which, when grounded with the ignition on and engine stopped, causes stored trouble codes to be flashed on the "CHECK ENGINE" lamp.

When the diagnostic terminal is grounded (jumper terminal "A" to "B") with the ignition on and engine stopped, codes are displayed in numerical order, always starting with Code 12 which indicates that the self-diagnosis system is operating properly. Trouble codes, are displayed in the following manner: Code 12 is displayed by one flash, a short pause, then two flashes and a longer pause. Code 12 will be displayed 3 times in this manner, then any additional codes stored will be displayed 3 times each in a similar manner until all codes have been displayed. Once all codes have been displayed. The process will be repeated as long as the test terminal remains grounded. DO NOT ground the diagnostic terminal until the ignition is "ON" and engine is "OFF" (not running). After trouble codes have been noted, the ground wire should be removed from the test lead and the engine should be started. When the engine is started and there are no other codes except Code 12, the "CHECK ENGINE" light should go out after approximately 5.0 seconds, indicating that the ECM has not detected a malfunction. However, if the ECM detects a current malfunction, the "CHECK ENGINE" lamp will remain illuminated while the engine is running. A trouble code indicates a possible system malfunction. If a trouble code can be obtained, even if the "CHECK ENGINE" lamp is "OFF" when the engine is running, a "SYSTEM PERFORMANCE CHECK" should be performed and the indicated circuit should be inspected.
