Each blink indicates a character for a particular code (letters, numbers etc.). Take the vehicle if possible to a mechanic or auto parts dealer and have a diagnostics test performed. This only takes a few minutes and is usually a free service at a auto parts dealers (Napa, Baxters, that I know of).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Blink = the number 1
pause......
Blink Blink = the number 2
get it one blink is one...then pause...then two blinks is a number two, so you have a code 12, which is a normal all systems go code.

Tip

OBD1 Trouble codes, without a scan tool.


Here is a tip for retrieving Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) from any OBD1 GM vehicle. <br /><br />First thing is your going to need to get a paper clip, and bend it into a U shape. <br /><br />Now stick the ends of the paper clip into the 2 top right hand side holes in the connector. Note: Do this with the key in the run position, but with the engine off.<br /><br />You should now see your check engine light flash once, pause, then 2 times. This indicates that your ECM is working properly.<br /><br />Now it will blink indicating your code. For example an EGR failure code is DTC 32. You will see your light blink 3 times, pause, then blink 2 times, giving you code 32.<br /><br />A list of codes can be found here: http://www.gmtuners.com/OBD1_DTC.htm.<br /><br />Hopefully this helps some of you all out there. Thanks for looking.

92 dodge dakota brake light abs light stuck on


ABOVE "Answers??" are only 1/2 correct ! Reason is:#1 doesn't help if you have 89-93 Dakota with ABS on REAR 2 wheels only. #2 is wrong BECAUSE ANY loss of brake fluid to rear leveling block sensor(located within frame above rear axle) will trigger cpu to keep abs light on=NOT electrical.#3 is worthless because it does not address brake fluid problem/air in system only(probably how to clear/read code by turning ignition switch). Answer=:Turn ignition key to just before start 3 times and wait a couple of sec for abs light to blink. Count # of blinks between pause and write down CODE ie 4 blinks=#4 pause 7 blinks=#7 the example code= 47. Look up code and read problem;CLEAR code by disconnect battery for 5 min to let cpu erase code. If spongy pedal or need fluid; bleed at all wheels PLUS at rear leveling block contained in frame(it has a small bleeder valve too and hard to get to!). If you have later models from 1995? with new system III you will need code reader/tester. P.S. If you have a parasitic electrical leak(battery goes down over 1-3 days) check fillament(sic) on rear bulbs. One could be broken and lay against other. Bulb will work most of time BUT WILL BE PARTIAL SHORT-therefore draining battery! Good luck-Rick

My 4 WD light is blinking and the ABS light came on the same day. Is there anyway to fix it at home without going to the dealer?


The only way to know what is wrong is to get the code(s) read. You don't have to go to the dealer for that. Any shop that has the capabiliity to read ABS codes can help you diagnose the problem and probably fix it too. As a rule the code readers that you can buy at the parts stores DON'T read ABS codes. There are specific code readers for that.

ABS light stays on all of the time.


Your dealing with OBDII
I am dealing with OBDI "93 Caprice Classic"
***I have been told***
The code is read from the ABS light on the dash
If it blinkes 3 times and stays on, Bad ground, if it flashes more then that it's a bad sensor and the count will give you the bad sensor.
Unfortunatly mine blinks three time and I have not found the ground wire yet.
Good luck

The code reader will connect with my passat but will not connect to the abs part of the of the system, any ideas, its just failed on abs light, its got 2 new sensors there both push right home, ive cleaned...


did you just the rings on the axles?look at them close sometimes the rings on the axle crack and this causes the abs light,,,,the generic scanner do not communicate with any module but the ecm/pcm they do not read abs only dealer and high $$$ snap on ones do read abs..thats why you can read it,,im sure there is a code but you need then right scanner

I have a 1993 chevy k1500 5.7 liter 4wd with a 40L60E transmission and it will not shift out of 2nd gear what could the problem be


Your truck could be on a limp mode since your transmission is controlled by the ECM. 
Here is a way for you to retrieve the fault codes in the ECM that is keeping your transmission from shifting past 2nd gear. Just be careful not to burn out the transmission.
On board diagnostic (OBD) was designed on vehicles equipped with electronic fuel injection so you can generally retrieve the codes yourself. No need buying a scanner or running to any parts stores to check the engine light. This system is called obd1 and applies to most vehicles made before 1995 for domestics and 1993 on imports. 

For GM domestic vehicles made before 1995, the diagnostic connector is located under the dash panel by the driver side. To get the check engine codes to flash in your dash panel, use a jumper wire or a paper clip and connect terminals A and B of the diagnostic connector. Turn your ignition key on with engine off and the codes should start to blink. All codes should start with code 12 which is one long flash followed by 2 short flashes. This code 12 means the diagnostic system is normal and will repeat itself continuously if there are no trouble codes. Otherwise, code 12 will flash 3 times before flashing the fault codes.

For GM and domestic vehicles and most of the codes can be erased or cleared by disconnecting the battery negative terminal for 1 minute and reconnect. Just make sure to check your service manual in case you have electronic equipment such as radio or clock that needs reprogramming in which battery disconnection is not recommended. Finally after performing repairs on the culprit code, always go for a road test to confirm if the problem is fixed.

Good luck and here is a link for the OBD 1 codes. http://chevythunder.com/199295_lt1_trouble_codes.htm#Code 28

Hi...
I'm a Mechanic.
And I Have Solus from Snapon. on My shop.
But I have Tried a lot Of OBDII code reader.
For me On my own OPINION. I say one of the better is AUTOXRAY.
With this Scanner you can Read Codes, Live Data. Freeze Frame, Pending codes,
And Clear the CODES.
This Kind of Scanners support, MB, BMW, AUDI VW, , All the Imports, from 1996 up to date.
Domestic From 1982 up to date. GM, FORD, Chrysler , Saturn.

Ok.. I hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya.

I have a 1989 s-10.The parking brake light blinks six times,pauses then flashes again.I was wondering what trouble code that would be???Thanks.


RWAL Fault codes
Codes for Dodge RWAL, Ford RABS and GM RWAL applications are similar but have a few differences:
  1. Should not occur (replace the controller if it does)
  2. Open isolation valve circuit or defective ABS module
  3. Open dump valve circuit or defective ABS module
  4. Grounded or closed RABS or RWAL valve switch
  5. Excessive actuations of dump valve during ABS braking
  6. Erratic speed sensor signal
  7. Shorted isolation valve or defective ABS module
  8. Shorter dump valve or defective ABS module
  9. High resistance or open speed sensor circuit (resistance should be 1000 to 2500 ohms)
  10. Low speed sensor resistance (Dodge & Ford only)
  11. Open speed sensor circuit (GM only)
  12. Stop lamp switch circuit (Dodge & Ford)
  13. ABS module speed processor (Dodge & Ford only)
  14. ABS module program (Dodge & Ford only)
  15. ABS module RAM memory failure (Dodge & Ford)
To manually clear a stored fault code on GM and some Dodge trucks with RWAL, remove the ABS fuse or disconnect the battery for 5 seconds. Ford RABS codes will automatically clear when the ignition is turned to the off position.
