One thing only you can do for this problem and that is first disable the drive and then enable it. If the problem still exists, then you must consult with tech person.

What does the blinking S mean on the dash when the sports button is not pushed in on the shifter


Hi there:
The problem is the transmission computer located under the riht front carpet and its the smaller of the 2 computers. You need to know what the code is. Use a paper clip and jump between the two wire SCS connector. Turn the key on and count any possible flashes in the check engine light. This connector is usually a blue connector and may be taped to the wire harness on that side with blue tape. If not, look behind the kick panel because they get placed behind this panel.

These cars are very bad about the TCM failing. If you get no flashes when you jump this connector but the light is on, the TCM (Transmission Control Module) has failed. Very common.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Just want the error code lights on front.


They're both status and error indicators.

Certance was formerly known as Seagate. Using that as the make the Installation Manual popped right up on a web search.

Page 17 lists the various combinations of the two LED's (flash codes).

Can you fix it?


It sounds like your first drive is defiantly shot. The second one suggests the drive has failed as well. You should be able to eject the tape manually using a long piece of steel. Such as a paper clip.

Taken from the manual
If all the right side or left side lights flash on the front panel:
There is a fault with the drive.
1 Try turning the power switch on the drive off and then on again.
2 If the problem persists, call for service.

So your sorda up a creek. Can i suggest moving to HDD backup system? They are ultra cheap, reliable, and much faster than Tape backup systems.

Alternativly if you have data you need to recover, you can purchase new (used) drives off ebay for about $200

Flashing lights


I had this issue and fortunately my tape drive was under warranty.

First off rang Dell and the technician tried fixing over the phone.

There are two types of flashing light (apparently) if the light is flashing slowly then the tape drive is telling you it needs cleaning, if the light is flashing fast then it is telling you that the tape (not drive) needs replacing.

The technician then said that if the tape drive was relatively new under 12 months then is was likely a software issue/conflict. My drive was nearly 3 years old, but he tried the software updates and restored the original defaults anyway and had no success, so they sent an engineer out.

When the engineer came out he replaced the drive immediately, i asked him what it was and he said when the drives get older or are used a lot they get clogged up with the metallic oxide ("DUST") from the tapes over time and they get to a point where they are so clogged they think they need cleaning all the time.

I asked if you could clean the tape heads yourself, he said you can but it is a real pain in the ***, so they don't, they just throw them away.

not much of a solution i know but this is whats happening, if your drive has done a fair bit of work then its a fair bet its knackered.

BTW: engineer did say you should only use good quality tapes as the cheaper ones give off more metallic oxide ("DUST") than the good ones.
