When the check engine light comes on that means there is a problem. The computer has logged a problem, you can take it to dealer or professional and they can read the stored code and suggest a solution to the problem.

Service engine light is on

Need to check what the engine codes are first. You can use a scan tool or turn the key on and off three times in a row then leaving the key on the third time and the check engine light should flash. Count the flashes,(example: flashes two times and then three times thats code 23) or have a parts store scan it for free. Once you have a code it will put you in a direction on what system needs to be looked at.

Check engine light flashing

When the check engine light is flashing it means that the computer has detected a misfire in the engine.It is not good to drive a vehicle that has a flashing check engine light; one or more sensor in your vehicle is advise about an code fault. I suggest scanning for know what code is in there and solve it.

In some vehicles, a red check-engine light means the car needs absolute immediate attention while a yellow check-engine light means you need to make an appointment soon. The light is used to indicate PCM (Powertrain Control Module) problems that are associated with your vehicle's emissions system.

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, and have a nice day.

Where do I find the wires that I apprently need to cross to get the check engine light to flash in order to get the codes?

Remove the kick panel just beside the left foot rest on the driver's side.
2) Locate blue wires.
3) Locate black connector. Hold it notch up.
4) With ignition off, insert one of the wires into top row, 2nd pin from left.
5) Turn key to on position, but do not start the car.
6) Watch blinky check engine light on dashboard. Count blinks. Long blinks = 10, Short blinks = 1.
7) Keep watching blinky light until you get mesmorized.

To clear codes (after problem has been resolved):
1) With engine off, stick the blue wires to 1st and 2nd pin in the top row counting from left on the

black connector, with notch facing up.
2) Start car. Shut off car. Remove pins.
3) Read codes to make sure they are clear. No codes = steady blinks at 1/4 second intervals. yhis is for the 94, 92 should be the same. have a good day !!

My check engine light comes on and stays for a while than goes off I thought that I smelled rubber today, what could it be

have your obd II CODES READ this will give you more of an idea what is going on with it. most auto parts stores read these codes. If you are smelling rubber check your serpitine belt for where and if it looks good take the belt loose and check the rest of the components that the serptine belt runs on altinator, water pump,powersteering pump, pully tensioner, other pullys ext.

What do the service light codes mean?

The codes give you a place to start to troubleshoot from. A Haynes manual will break down the code to interpret their meaning. The codes are repeated 3 times. ALDL, assembly line data link, is located to the left of the steering column. The 2 terminals at the right side of the top row are shorted together, turn the ignition on, DO NOT START THE ENGINE with the terminals shorted, the first code flashed 12 will be a system check indicator, 3 times, after that any fault code will present themselves 3 times as well. They diagnose various engine functions and sensors as well as electronic transmission issues.

How do i read codes for my 91 chevy silverado? Its running rough...starts fine then a few seconds later sputs out unless i feather the pedal to keep it going. Can't drive it. check engine light came on...

Under the dash board there is an electrical block with nothing plugged into it. there are 2 rows of terminals. on the top row on the right is terminal "a". terminal "b" is the second one in from the right. terminal diagram labeling is like this from left to right.
top row,"F", "E", "blank","C","B","A"
bottom row "G","H", "blank","blank","blank","blank"
take a small piece of wire and jump terminal "A" and "B". i found an unfolded paper clip works well. with the terminals jumped, turn the key to the on position.(DO NOT START ENGINE) with the key on, the service engine light will start flashing codes. count the flashes. it will repeat each code 3 times before moving on to the next code. your first and last code will be a code 12. that is just the test code. it lets you know you did it right. you will see 1 flash with a short pause then 2 flashes. after you see that 3 times, your next code will be your trouble codes. when you see code "12" again, there are no more. if you tell me what the codes are, i'll tell you what the mean. hope this helps.

Check enggine

Do a self test. Turn key to on position and back to off position 3 times. a series of flashes will commence from the "check engine" light. The first set of flashes is the 1st digit of the code, then there will be a pause, then a 2nd set of flashes, This will be the 2nd digit of the code. For example, 3 flashes, pause, 7 flashes, means code 37. Check what the code means in a Haynes auto repair manual. This will tell you what the engine light on your car means.
