Well, the code 12 is telling you the battery or the computer has been disconnected in the last 50 starts, code 21 is a problem with the O2 sensor, and code 55 is telling you there are no more trouble codes stored in memory.
Code 21 means the O2 sensor is not switching from rich to lean, which can be a faulty sensor or a fuel problem.

Code 12 is: Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 key-on cycles.

Code 21 is: Neither rich nor lean condition detected from the oxygen sensor input or oxygen sensor input voltage maintained above the normal operating range.

A P1698 code is described as PCM Fault, No CCD Messages from TCM Conditions. It's triggered when the key is on, and the PCM did not detect any CCD messages from the Transaxle Control Module (TCM) for 10 seconds. Time for a trip to the dealer unless you feel like inspecting the wires & connectors leading to/from the TCM. Usually I tell people to go to the dealer when there are TCM problems! They can read any codes stored in the TCM that a regular code reader can't get. Good luck.

Since yours is a forward engine car. The transaxle must be located in the front.

That is a code for the secondary (spark) circuit on cylinder number 3. It is usually caused by a bad connection between the coil and the plug (take the coil off the plug and check for moisture in the boot). If not, it might be a bad coil...

you are incorrect on your code read. u0155 is lost comm with IPC, u110c is no fuel read, u0140 lost comm with BCM and can all be fixed with a new BCM.

98 mercury villager no start , code P 1320


Here is the entire description for the code -

When is the code detected?When the ignition signal in the primary circuit is not sent to Engine Control Module (ECM) during engine cranking or running.

Symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P1320 NISSAN Description The ignition signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM) is sent to and amplified by the power transistor. The power transistor turns on and off the ignition coil primary circuit. This on-off operation induces the proper high voltage in the coil secondary circuit
Possible causes - Faulty power transistor unit built into ignition coil
- Ignition primary circuit is open or shorted (circuit to ignition coils)
- Ignition primary circuit poor electrical connection (circuit to ignition coils)
- Faulty ignition system condenser
- Crankshaft position sensor circuit

help.png Help with this Tech notes The most common cause that will trigger the P1320 code is the ignition coils, one or more ignition coils may have failed. Even tough the coils may be working OK, the resistance for one or more of the coils is greater or smaller that what the Engine Control Module (ECM) is expecting. Measuring the resistance with the coil out of the vehicle may not show any failures, usually the coil fails under heavy conditions (hard acceleration) or certain temperatures.

The P1320 code means that there is problem with the "Ignition Coil" or the wire to the ignition coil. For some models without individual ignition coils the Ignition Coil is inside the distributor and the distributor need to be replaced to fix the problem.

Van runs fine for 3 to 5 miles after startup then dies


Code 42 is the (asd) automatic shutdown driver,there is an open or a short in the relay circuit, and I don't have my manual to tell you where to look, have it checked.
Code 11 is no distributor signal during engine cranking.
Code 12 is battery power to computor disconnected in last 50 to a 100 cycles; memory standby power lost.
Code 55 is end of code output. These are what my code manual is showing. That shutdown driver should be checked. Hope this helps.

Transaxle control module


I have a 1993 Caravan with a 4speed trans.. I had to replace the transaxle control module. I paid $50.00 for it at a auto salvage yard and It corrected the problem. My trans would either go into limp mode or act like it was in Neutral.

More than likely it's the distributor. They have a tendency to build up corrosion and rust and have personally went through the same situation three weeks ago on a suburban. Check to see if you are getting spark from the distributor first. Have the ecm in the distributor checked at Oriellys for free. It's under the rotor and has two 8mm head bolts with wires plugged in at each end.
