SOURCE: ABS

The code scanner that you need is called ODBII code reader with ABS, and it works in the same way as the one that you connect to the car computer module (ECU) to read codes when the check engine light comes on, but the cheap ones that you can buy from $50 do not have the ABS brake scan function.

If the problem is the ABS, then it is often a wiring to abs problem, or a defective ABS control module, a scan reading is necessary to know what the problem is.

Below few examples of Code reader with ABS:

SOURCE: Misfire in 97 voyager,P0300 and P0304,HELP! Need 2 get inspection

I'd have fuel pressure checked, and at the very least, replace fuel filter. Not unusual to get multiple misfire codes due to low fuel pressure, thus starving cylinder(s), and causing the misfire code(s).

SOURCE: engine stopped while driving chk eng light on,

A crank-no start condition can definitely be caused by a faulty crank sensor; if after testing the crank sensor and finding it defective you will need to clear the codes and drive for at least a couple of drive cycles to see if the emission codes are legitimate or were simply induced by the failure of the crank sensor.

Egr not working 97 geo metro lsi

H3LL most of those old 90s car it does not work now.
(ive cured many) (some take 5hours hard labor De-carbonizing the thing)

how do you know that,?
guess:
1 P0400 DTC errors?
2 pinging?
3 fails smog?,,.
is it too hard to tell the story>?

This is Suzuki swift if you had not notices
open hood lookup see that sticker, says SUZUKI
clear as day, and means parts more easy to find.
In the USA we got G engines. G10,G13 top sizes
all suzuki's this era
have horrible Rube Goldberg EGR
vacuum and cat backpressure, magic,err horrors
test 1.
find the EGR main,
see rear and the skeleton-ized frame?
hot engine, we use vacuum tool on its nipplefitting
and it stalls the engine or near, 800 goes to 400. rpm.
that means the 5hour labor part is ok.
leaving vacuum parts or electric VSV

if the diaphram fails to move the valve is bad.
if it moves fully (1/4" or more ok.
so remove it, and clean the carbon seen here.
valve ports. put back pass stall test now?
if hot the hidden exhaust path is blocked.

end, im not doing the vacuum/elect, cat pressure side now.. until you report stall test results.
this test here 1 test cuts the job in half.

My '97 Geo Metro LSi will not start. When I turn the ignition key on the buzzer, idiot lights, lights, horn, etc., everything electrical will work. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no...

It could be the starter, test the small wire going to the starter, it should have power when turning the key to start/crank. If it does, and the starter will not crank the engine, whack it with a hammer, if it then starts, replace the starter. If there is no power to the starter, then it could be the ignition switch, or the neutral switch, or a fuse/link blown.
