Customer Question
My last hope... SC400 1992...
My last hope... SC400 1992: I have TRAC light on and O/D OFF blinking light. Decided to find out fault codes according described procedure. But the problem is that my "check engine" light is not appearing as it should. It does not appear even when ignition is on and i am starting engine.
The bulb is ok i am sure, because before i changed capacitors for my ECU "check engine" light was on.

I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?
