    Steady check engine light with no code?



    Did you get a mechanic to check for codes or did you get someone to check with a generic reader?



    There should be a passive or active code for the light to be on.



    If you really don't have no active (still happening) or passive (stored; happened in the past) codes the only other logic explanation would be a short either in wiring or in the instrument cluster itself causing the check engine light to illuminate erratically without a code by some other power source.



    Note : Some passive codes leave the light on while others don't, depending on the vehicle and code.

Dodge durango chugging constantly, idle steady, lights dim with chug and engine light flashed 3 times when tried to accelerate at about 50 mph


A flashing check engine light means there is a serious problem (as opposed to a steady light which means there's a problem). You need to have the stored codes read before trying to figure out what's wrong. Most auto parts stores will read codes for free. Then simply Google your make and model and the code and you will probably get a few results that will point you in the right direction.

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.

Check engine light flash then steady


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. If the light is flashing there is a severe failure of the emission-control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.

Code P0420


P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)

There is one 02 sensor in front of the catalytic converter (called upstream), and one behind it (downstream). When the engine is warmed up and running normally the upstream oxygen sensor reading fluctuates and the downstream one is fairly steady. In the case where both readings are fairly steady, a P0420 check engine light code is set.

Possible Causes:
Oxygen (O2) sensor not working correctly
Damaged or leaking exhuast (pipe, manifold, catalytic converter)
Damaged catalytic converter
