Question about 1992 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Plymouth Grand Voyager with the 3.3L V6. The 'MAINT REQD' light has been on for months. I can't get the ignition cycling to give me a code readout. I don't if I'm doing it incorrectly (I figured it would at least give a 12 and 55) or if it really matters. It seems like all the places that will check codes for free will only do OBD2. I don't want to pay someone a lot of money just to turn a light off. Is there a software/cable solution that will let me reset the light myself and/or pull the codes? At least then I would have something to reuse.

When the Check Engine Soon Light comes on , your first instinct is to pull over and check out the situation. This is not necessary. This is the vehicles way of letting you know at its earliest stage that an error has occurred. No need to panic. If you have been driving with that all annoying light on, remember this : Your gas mileage will improve if the necessary repairs are made.
LOOKING FOR CODE INFORMATION GO HERE : DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES




The first thing to do when your "Check Engine Soon" light comes on is to determine the immediate cause. Consider if the vehicle is still performing as usual or if a loss of performance is noticeable. Generally a constant illuminated light without loss of performance points to an emissions related issue( this won't leave you stranded). When the light flashes, this indicates a serious engine failure condition and will require immediate attention. You may wish to take your vehicle to a local shop and have Computer Diagnostics performed. Usually costs under $100.00.


Generally all vehicles from 1996 and up have an OBD II computer. The Major problem when it comes to OBD II is that you can no longer acquire the trouble codes by counting the flashes of the Check Engine light like you could on earlier OBD I vehicles. You can take your car into a local high-tech service shop, where the minimum charge for computer diagnostics and engine diagnostics might cost you somewhere into three digits. Or you may want to learn about OBD II systems. in order to do so you will need an OBD II scan tool. I have already done the research for you and located several different scan tools for you to choose from. If you already have the code and need to know what it means check out our complete list of OBD II Codes Here.





OBD II scan tools connect to the vehicle's computer through a connector under the dash by the steering wheel.

TOYOTA SIENNA MAINT REQD LITE CAME ON AFTER SCHEDULE MAINTANANCE


If the dealer/mechanic did the service early the light will come on when service is DUE. Go back to him and have it turned off. Search the web someone may have the procedure posted. Usually simple. Google "Toyota service light reset" or "Toyota Maintence light reset" Try this one
  1. With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).

My maint reqd. lite is on all time(not check engine) need help!!


a 1992 Plymouth Voyager is not a "muscle car" suggest you get a real muscle car or change your name. With the problems you list that you don't know how to fix it is clear you do not have what is needed to "restore" anything. Get professional help, either mechanical or medical.
