Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
What kind of codes are you getting through the Rinda?
There are always at least 4 codes that come up. Are you using your code reader the correct way?
Sounds good, let me know what happens.
To be honest I don't know how to use the techmate tool. I use Diacom, the laptop one. I've never use the handheld.
Try fault history, see what it says there.
Some of those codes are for optional sensors, but some do indicate a problem
21 - This is the engine coolant temp sensor. The engine is either overheating, or it thinks it is because of a bad temp sensor.
22 - This just means the warning horn is on
153 - This is the gear lube monitor bottle. It is either low on gear lube or the sensor in it is bad
210 - This is the neutral switch on the shift plate where the 2 shift cables come together. The switch is either bad or unplugged, or the ECM otherwise thinks the engine is always in neutral because it is not seeing a signal form this switch.
The rest of the codes you don't have to worry about, they are for optional sensors the engine doesn't have. So you can ignore those.
Does that all make sense? If yes, did you have any further questions on the issue?
I think that should do it. But I work for tips so I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
Hello, sorry for the delay, we all do this on the side out of our houses.
Is the scan tool dropping it's connection when you try to do these tests? Also, is there is a history or story behind the engine?
You could have a bad ECM or bad wiring harness if it is dropping communication. In the shop what I would do is swap the ECM for a working one, that would tell me if the problem is a bad harness or bad ECM. Does that make sense?
Hello, just checking in, any progress?
Hello, just checking in. The website has charged you but no rating has been put through yet. I wanted to make sure I got all your questions on this issue answered. Did you have any further questions on the issue?
