I do not have a p code. I do not what that is, explain if you can

It's the standard OBD2 code system used by the car. The codes you posted make no sense at all. What scan tool are you using?

Those codes don't come up at all they must be specific to the scan tool. Is there a generic OBD2 mode on the scan tool?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Sorry, there is no generic OBD2 code on the scan tool

You can get it scanned for free at most auto parts stores or you can rent a scanner from them and scan it. Places like Autozone will do it for free though. If you post the PXXXX code/s here I'll tell you exactly how to fix it.
