A 1998 uses OBD-II - you will need to use a newer scanner.

You can purchase a code scanner from any of the DIY auto parts stores. They include the instruction book and a list of codes.

You have a couple of options. You can buy a code reader from any of the big box parts houses and read the code, or you can take the car to the parts house and have them read it for you. As infrequently as most cars throw a code, I'd just have the parts house read it for me. They generally don't charge for this service.

You need a engine scanner and then go into transmission trouble codes. Write them down,get a book, look them up, and read. Most scanners will tell you whats going on.

With your key in the ignition switch and in the off position, switch key to on (not to start), then back to off, then on, off again, then on a third time. If you have trouble codes they will read on your odometer display. For example: P0303, etc. When it is done displaying codes or if there are no codes, it will read P done.

The best thing to do if to have a code reader hooked up and read the trouble codes the reader can also clear the codes once you have read them. If the problems aren't fixed the light will come back.

If you can not read codes with a scanner you have a wiring problem.

If it is a U.S. car then it is an OBDII compliant vehicle and the codes can be read with an OBDII scan tool.

It allows the OBD II scanner to connect to your Ford Explorer to " read " any trouble codes when the check engine light comes on for one thing

something to do with diagnostic codes. you need to have the codes read. I'm having battery problems with my Saturn and it seems to happen then.

Reading the codes in a GM is possible without a scantool only through the 1995 model year.

Go where they have a scanner that reads them. A TECH11 scanner is one. A lot of dealers have this one.

disconnecting the battery will not clear the code this car has an obd2 system in it so the only way to clear it is to use a code reader if you go to a auto zone they will read them for free and usally have one you can buy clear the code and return so that you dont need to buy it

Vehicles after 1995 require the use of the OBDII scan tool to retrieve/read the trouble codes. Auto supply stores such as AutoZone, Advance, Chief, etc. usually will scan free of charge.

A scan tool or code reader is required to read the trouble codes on a 2001 Chrysler Town and Country.

The check engine light must be on so, start with having the DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) read. The codes will help with determining what is wrong with the emission control system. Most of your local auto parts stores will provide that service for you at no cost.

Fault codes are where your tv has an internal problem with power that most likely prevents your tv from coming on.The faults are sometimes read by a processor and generated into blinking lights,or trouble codes

User Avatar

you need a obd2 scanner, which plugs into a port under dash, on the driver side.

On 1994 and older vehicles, you can manually pull the trouble codes. Check out a repair manual (Hayne's or Chilton's) at your local library - chapter 6 has all the details on how to do it; also what each code means and how to trouble shoot.
