The device will read codes, but the scan tool is also used to check parameters of the engine while running and will notice problems inside the engines computer which don't always show up ie the check engine light. if the engine isn't running it will also check for current or past issues.

What can cause code p0135 on 2004 jeep grand cherokee laredo

one more thing to check after going through all this stuff, which actually these guys seem to have a wealth of knowledge on. seriously. jeep for some reason has a notorious situation that so many mechanics and enthusiasts miss. .. it took me 3 weeks to figure this stupid mess out for my x's daughter, who hates me by the way, but i do it because i'm a nice guy. try the cam sensor. sounds silly i know. but i see it more and more as being the answer to all these mysteriousness ailments to these hard running jeeps. my daughter is getting ready to drive and wouldn't you know it she wants a grand cherokee. lol. I have an 87 yj. but its a weekend mustang killer. and i luv to stomp tuners on the highway. its on youtube. got a lil sbc, with a t-5 borg warner hybrid shorty, 1,2,3, fast throw, 4,5. way long. 4:11 rear with detroits. not 4wd. its so fun. had to put upper and lower lakeside drag bars. but anyway..... :) cam sensor give it a thought. sometimes 1 and 2 banks are hard to differentiate for some reason when reading codes. still trying to figure that one out.???

My 96 roadmaster has a misfiring problem i changed spark plugs the wires put new gas pump and filter ,but now is not the same it starts shaking and the left side or the exhaust makes like a misfing noise...


Your vehicle's engine emission system is monitored by the On-board Diagnostic (OBD) computer.

Misfires can be caused by any number of circuits ranging from MAP, TPS, HO2, Injectors, Vaccuum leaks....and so on.....and so on.....

The misfire you speak of will have triggered the appropriate fault codes which will be stored in memory. As there could be numerous causes for this condition, you really should have your codes read by your local dealership.

Checking for fault codes only takes 15-25mins (depending on experience of the technician), and will quickly identify the suspected circuit/s.

Good luck...

The engine warning light is staying on all the time on my proton wira

Something has caused an error code to come up in your computer. Most likely emissions problem. This has put the car into what they call limp mode. The light will stay on until the code is read and cleared. The cause must be fixed or the light will come back on. Most parts houses like Advance and Auto Zone will read and clear the code for free and tell you the most likely cause of the code. Hope this helps you.

Hi badboyf6,
Limp mode can be activated by many things to numerous to list here so, if possible can you get a local mechanic to hook up an OBD lead to the ECU (computer thingy!) of the car and read the fault code.

From this reading he/she will be able to determine what has caused limp mode activation and depending what it is reset/cancel limp mode.

Gettin a fault code reading is quick and cheap to do, (even from the dealership!) and at least you will have more information to determine what is best thing to do next...
Hope this helps and good luck.
