Have this checked with another scan tool. Link error is produced when the PCM fails to respond to the scan tool. More times than not this is the PCM failing.

Try replacing the cigar lighter fuse ( Fuse #41 ) this is for the cigar lighter and the OBD port power. Without power from the vehicle, a scanner will give similar messages.

The flashing CEL is usually an indication of a misfire in process, best to confirm after replacing the fuse. If the fuse blows again, check for obstructions in the bottom of the cigar lighter, some DC power adapters fall apart and lay in the bottom of the socket causing the blown fuse.

I have a 1997 ford f150 4x4 4.6 v8 extended cab pick up, my engine light was flashing and had no temp gage, tested the sensor and is was fried, bought a new sensor and put it in, the engine light no longer...


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Service engine light keeps coming on. Shows pressure sensor is bad ?


You have to have, all vehicle problems involving any
OBD2 light on the dash,checked out in a couple of
days. Don't keep driving it,you have a possible
system malfunction
Need the code to give you ideas
Just get it checked out
If it is a transmission problem, I wouldn't even drive it.

OBD2 "check engine lite" shows


Both codes are system too lean bank 1 & bank 2. First place to start is any obvious vacuum leaks. Look for broken,collapsed or missing vacuum lines. Check egr valve & intake manifold also.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee (63,000 mi - V8) Check engine light indicates #1 cylinder misfiring. Spent $$ getting system flushed for carbon residue. Drove 3 weeks, started up, ran rough, and light came on...


The miss,does not just come and go,if it is a engine valve,replace the coil and boot,go from there,if this does not solve the problem,then the injector is gone out,or going out.If it is a engine valve,the miss would never get better,then worse,it would be the same all the time,get him to run a air compression test,get the valves up(close)and see if any air is detected threw the exhaust,or the intake,it will be present if the valve is the problem.
