brownjeff :

If the light is on there should be a code in the computer. Do you have any codes?

Customer:

I am unable to retrieve codes

brownjeff :

Have you tried to turn the key on and off three times to see if any show up? Is there a parts store near by as they will normally check for free?

Customer:

I did not know about turning the key off and on. What do I need to do?

brownjeff :

Turn it on and off three times. Do not crank the engine and leave it on the last time and watch the odometer for code numbers. It will look like this: ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON

Customer:

Ok will do, is there anywhere I can then search the code number to see the problem?

brownjeff :

If you get the number I can tell you what the number means

Customer:

I will not be able till after 6:30 pm this evening.

brownjeff :

That is fine just reply when you get the code. I will reply as soon as I can after getting the information from you

Customer:

Thank you

brownjeff :

no worries.....talk to ya soon

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
