When you say 'jamming',do you mean stuck in a gear?When they lodge a fault or numerous faults,the system goes in to 'limp home mode'.It stays in one gear,a sort of a get you home but I now I've got your attention,get me fixed mode.
I cant find a code 90,even the conversion to P codes doesn't define this.It may be a manufacturer specific code,
on engine it is 90 -camshaft timing adjust actuator open cicuit or short to ground.
or 090-not used.
on trans conversions,009xx-P09xx-not used.
I suspect that my update for the codes needed hasn't been supplied to me.
I shall do some more research for you if needed.

2001 Honda Civic with error code P1298


is it a sick or auto? if its a auto you might just be out of fluid because of a leak or because the 1998-2002 accord automatic transmission is a failure and tend to wear out after only 90-100k miles. I got my '99's rebuilt a 98k, it was barely able to go. if its a manual, its more than likely just a simple clutch replacement.

1993 air bag warning light flashes 10 times, stops, then repeats over and over


10 blinks is a faulty diagnostic module. If available at the dealer it will be hundreds of dollars. You do see these at salvage yards and on eBay but remember you're purchasing the same 25 year old part that you had failed so make sure you can return the item if it doesn't work. Airbag Blink Codes

75 series landcruiser has no power


It is time to get the engine checked for the error code. The fault can be relative to many issues but primarily the fuel and firing timings. So also the compression and valve timing must be checked. Make sure that there is no brake jamming or faulty bearing , check all wheels for free movement.

My check engine light and the transmisiion/malfunction light is on. My car will not go over 30 mph if I can get it to drive. what do you think is wrong?


Sounds like it has gone into some sort of limp mode that will only allow you to pull it off of the road. You need to take to someone to scan it to see what trouble codes are in the onboard computer.

When i try cd it keeps writing error.and reject every cd plates i insert.it was playing normal 2days ago.pls what do i do when error notice appear.the car is honda 2003 model coupe.thanx


Unfortunately 90% of the time when you get error codes from the CD player/changer it means that there is a mechanical failure in the CD player/changer unit itself and it usually requires CD player/changer rebuild or replacement...
First make sure you have entered the correct anti-theft code. If battery power has been disconnected recently than the stereo display will read CODE if the incorrect anti-theft code is entered the display will read ERR1 thru ERR3. If this is the case you'll have to get the correct anti-theft code. Note; If you enter the incorrect code three times the stereo locks up. Disconnect the battery for more than 30 seconds and then retry.
FYI;Never use adhesive labels or protective disc covers on recordable CD's. Recordable CD's are actually thicker than pre-recorded CD's. Automotive players and changers use rollers to draw the disc into the unit. The added thickness of an adhesive label or protective disc cover may cause the disc to jam. Also CD players and changers are exposed to high temperatures inside the vehicle. High temp will cause the labels adhesive to soften which may cause the labels edges to curl or cause it to bubble. Either one may cause the disc to jam. If the player can not be disassembled and have the discs removed successfully than it will have to be replaced. -hope this helps.
