This information may help in your situation. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

Now, keep in mind all dishwashers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting. Just remove the screws that hold the panel in place and remove.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

Often, I have found this to be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of WHICH circuit is causing your problem. You will need to refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

What does it mean when my clean light blinks but I cannot cancel or reset it


Ah, the famous (or infamous) Clean-light blinking problem. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff, a bad controller.

Clean light blinks


clean light blinks is a form of error codes. The most common is a heater circuit error, 7 times then a pause is the heater. to clear the code press the heated dry then normal in a key dance 4 times. this starts a diagnostic cycle, takes several min to complete. let it run. it will work until it sees the fault again. this code is caused when the main control does not read a water temp increase 3 times in a row. If this continues call for service.

Error codes for 1991 dodge spirit


Turn the key to run then off, back to run, then off, then to run and leave it on. The check engine light will be on and will then go off and then on again according to the codes the engine controler happens to have in it. If the check engine light was on when you stopped the car, then there is at least one code in the controler. The light will blink the codes like this.
Cycle the key three times and leave on on the third time. light on for about 3-4 seconds then goes out for about 2 seconds and then blinks one time and goes out for 3 seconds this is for the no.1. Then the light blinks 3 times and goes out for about 3-4 seconds. You have the code 13. You could have a whole string of codes in the controler memory. It could be something like this. key cycled 3 times, light on for 3-4 seconds, then blinks 1 time, pause, 3 times, longer pause, 2 times ,pause 4 times, longer pause, then 5 times, pause 5 times the goes out.
This is code ; 13,24, 55. code 55 isn't really a code. It just tells you it's the end of any codes the controller has.
If you disconnect the battery and hook it back, you will have code 13 which simply mean 'battery disconnect'. It will errace it's self after several starts if it's not disconnected again. If you cycle the key and you get 55, this means there are no codes recorded at this time.
You will allways get 55 when checking for codes wheather there are fault codes or not. The light on for a few second before the codes start flashing is only a bulb check. Some codes like 13 will not turn the check engine on, but but will leave a code for diagnostic purposes only. If you have the check engine light on and accellerate and the light begains to blink, then the controller is telling you that you have an engine miss and are running the chance of burning out you're catalatic converter if you continue driving. Sometimes its advised to disconnect the battery after you have recorded the codes.
This will erase all codes that are present but were generated by conditions that aren't pertanent to the present condition. and then the codes that come back are the real ones to address.

I have a 1995 dodge neon that has the service engine light on and I do not know what to check or replace.i do not have a maintenance manual and cannot find one for free.


hers what you do. grab a pen and a piece of paper. go out to the car and turn the ignition on, off, on, off, on. the engine light will begin a series of blinks. you have to count the blinks. all of the codes are double digit so you will need to pay attention. it will blink however many times for the first number pausing briefly between the will pause longer between numbers then blink again for the second number again pausing briefly between blinks for instance. say the car has a code 55 which it will. it will blink 5 times pausing briefly between pauses then there will be a longer pausethen it will blink 5 more times pausing briefly between numbers. jot these numbers down paying close attention to ensure accuracy and if you reply to me with the codes i will tell you what they are. you can check the codes however many times you need to

Air bag light


It means that there is a problem with your air bag. It should be blinking a code. Count the blinks. In otherwords it should blink twice, pause and then blink 7 more times indicating a code 27 which would be a burned out bulb on PAD. Count blink code and the google your truck year and air bag code and then the code and see what the forums are saying about it and what to check.

How can i stop airbag light from blinking while driving


Your airbag light blinking is telling you that something is wrong within the airbag system. The blinking is giving a code, it will blink x amount of times, then pause and again blink x amount of times. Example it blinks 3 times, then a pause, and then blinks 2 times, means the code is 32.

After you get the code you can find out what the problem is, and what exactly needs to be repaired. If you're not experienced with airbag systems, it is best to have it serviced by a professional.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
