Typically the flashing is in a sequence of consistant, short or long blinks that represent a number. This number ie; one long and two short blinks =12, 8 consistant blinks=8 and so on.....represents a trouble code that will be listed in a service manual for your model and lead you to the problem component or circuit.

    this is a snowmobile so its not confused with the venture motorcycle, i looked in the repair manual and the 3 long flashes is the code for the carb solenoids i did the the 12 volt test onthem after cleaning them and they seem to be working fine but im still getting the code and sled runs poorly on low end and top end????

    sorry I have no experience with sleds. Been in Texas all life. You may have to take to dealer for connection to a yamaha diagnosis system to determine the event that has caused the code to appear. sometimes some other event will cause a sensor to throw a code and depending on how sophisticated Yamahas diagnostic system is it can read engine and sensor activity at the time of failure from stored memory.

2004 Chevy Venture. "Service engine soon" light on. Code PO401. I believe EGR passage in plugged. Will GM&#;s Top Engine Cleaner work?

diagnostic aids:
a vacuum restriction to the map sensor--a skewed map sensor reading can cause the PCM to read an incorrect MAP change during the EGR flow test
an engine that is running poorly due to mechanical condition such as worn piston rings, ect. can cause low engine vacuum thus EGR flow test will fail
excessif backpressure of the exhaust system can cause P0401
exhaust system leak can cause an insufficient amount of EGR flow
a restriction in the intake manifold such as carbon deposit and casting flash.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.

I have 1986 Yamaha Venture. I took the luggage bags off to have the rear tire replaced by dealer. Picked up the bike and now I have no signal lights front or back. The front bulbs are working but do not...

The front lights are running lights and turn you are probably seeing the running light lit, as it should be any time the key is on.
The power for the turn signals goes through the Hazard flasher switch, its set up so you can't try the turn signals and the hazard flashers at the same time. First inspect to see the harness is still firmly connected to the switch.
I would remove the hazard flasher switch and with harness still attached, key ON, the Hazard switch OFF, verify you have battery voltage at the Brown wire.....thats from the Signal fuse circuit. If its check the brown/yellow wire for voltage...thats from the switch going to the flasher system...if no have a problem in the switch. A great site for Venture repair is the site.
Hope this has helped!
