How to access trouble code


year vehicle manufactured? if 1996 & later, OBDII scanner to be plugged into a port (typically, should be near the steering column, under the dash).
older models may have OBDI (no standard location of port) scanner specific to the make of the vehicle. search the web, on how to read manually (or without scanner) the code by counting the number of blinks of the MIL (malfunction Indicator light) (aka check engine, or service engine soon).

Holden frontera 2001. Check engine light has come on. Also my accelerator had no power. No pressure to go.


You will need an OBD II scanner to read the check engine light code. The scanners are not expensive, starting around $20. Follow the instructions for the scanner; the male socket for the car will be under the dash, usually near the steering wheel. When you get the code, use the internet to look up what it means and go from there.

How to read obd code suzuki aerio


There should be two OBD ports on this vehicle, one under the steering wheel the other is located by the computer unit under the hood. Attach an OBD reader or OBD II Reader (available to be borrowed from most car part stores) and read the code.

I am trying to connect a scanner ob2 to check engine light that is on but not reading also tried taking positive cable off battery then drove it for 30 min light still on what can i do


1996 is the first year that OBD II was mandated. Some cars will have the OBD II port but not be OBD II compliant. Does it have the 12 pin port or the 16 pin port?

What is the purpose of the connector to the immediate left of the hood release under the steering wheel of a 4X4 quad cab pickup truck? I could not find anything about it in the user manual.


This is OBD - On - Board -Diagnostic Connector.
On Board Diagnostics, OBD-II, is required on all automobiles and light trucks in the United States from 1996 onward. OBD-II is a set of specifications for monitoring and reporting on engine performance in modern automobiles.
If the Service Engine light is on, then connecting a Code Scanner on OBD Connector, the Code is picked up and the code explanation can be found. If this is a False Code, this can be Cleared with the code scanner, after reading the code.

Where do you plug in the code reader on 1995 aurora?


First of all, it's located below the steering wheel underneath the dash.
If it was late 1995 the OBD-II may be on the vehicle, but I think not. Usually '96 and above can be read by an OBD-II scanner.

OBD-I also had a connector in the same place, but uses a different scan tool.

good luck in reading codes.

2000 Mazda MPV My check engine light has come on and it won't start. I have checked the fuses, any ideas?


Check the battery and try to jumpstart your car. Or borrow an OBD II scanner and plug it in to the connection under the dash/steering wheel area and see what the error code, problem is.

1995 900s OBD1 OBD2 ?


1995 is OBD 1. Saab became OBD 2 compliant in 1996. The error message may represent a communication problem between the device and the on board electonics, although this most often is manifested by failure of the reader to provide any message. Check your diagnostic port on the back side where the wires enter it. You will need to remove the two screws that secure it to the underside of the lower dash panel beneath the steering wheel to do this. Make sure that none of the pins have been pushed through the back side or have been loosened within the port. If it looks suspicious, try holding the wires securely into the port when connecting to the scanner. It may help to have an assistant who can experiment with various positions pushing against the backs of the pins while you try to get a secure connection. If this is not the problem, the scanner you purchased my employ the wrong communication standard for Saab cars, which is ISO 9141. There are three others out there in common use.
