Hello,

Can you tell me the code.

Customer:

where do I find answer?


 

Ron :

I can send you a answer if you can tell me the code you are getting

Customer:

sorry, its the check engine light code

Ron :

Yes , I assumed that, but to give you a correct answer , I need to know the actual code.

Customer:

what do you mean by actual code? sorry, not mechanically inclined.

Ron :

When the check engine light comes on, the PCM (computer) sets a fault code and or codes. The code tells you what system has failed and needs repair.

Ron :

Most part stores will run a scan for you at no charge and retrive the codes for you. Once we have them we can point you in the correct repair.

Customer:

ok, I was talking to another person. And they suggested to turn engine off and restart. my impression was they had received a code for how many times. to turn car off & on.

Ron :

No you Friend is not correct. If the Service Engine light is on, the PCM is seeing a fault and has stored a Fault code.

Customer:

ok thank you.

Ron :

Your very welcome.
