What is the 1999 sebring lxi service codes my service engine soon lite stays on an once in a while blinks 9 times?
I am not a mechanic, but own a 1999 Sebring. The "Check Engine" comes on for a myriad of reasons. The only way to find the fault is to read the code. This can be done using an engine code scanner, either do-it-yourself or taking the vehicle in to the shop. A third method involves turning the ignition key in a specific sequence which causes the light to flash the numeric code - kind of like a crude Morse code. For a 1999 Sebring, a common code is the "multiple cylinder misfire." This just says that one or more spark plug(s) failed to fire. If this occurs when changing speeds (entering or exiting a highway, for example) then the EGR valve may be the culprit. I've read that it goes bad on these vehicles. If the vehicle has more than 70k miles, then the fuel filter needs to be replaced, per the maintenance schedule. A clogged fuel filter may also cause piston misfires. Good luck.
FOR FREE YOU CAN TAKE YOUR CAR TO ADVANCED AUTO AND THEY WILL READ THE CODES AND TELL YOU WHAT IT IS CALLING FOR FOR FREE. AND ALSO RESET THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT IF YOU WANT THEM TO. BUT THEM YOU WOULD KNOW WHAT THE CAR IS TRYING TO TELL YOU. ALSO YOU CAN TRY TURNING THE CAR TO THE ON AND THEN OFF AND THEN ON ( WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE) AND IT WILL FLASH CODES ( BY HOW MANY TIMES THE SERVICE LIGHT FLASHS), JUST JOT DOWN THE NUMBER. IT WILL FLASH ONE OR TWO TIMES AND THEN START FLASHING BETWEEN ONE TO SIX TIMES. COUNT THE FLASH'S IN A ROW AND WRITE IT DOWN AND THAN WAIT AND SEE IF IT FLASH'S AGAIN AND WRITE THAT NUMBER DOWN, IT COULD TAKE A WHILE TO GET THIS DONE. BUT WITH INFORMATION IN HAND YOU CAN EITHER GOOGLE AND FIND YOUR ANSWERS OR GO TO ADVANCED AUTO OR A CAR PARTS STORE AND THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO TELL YOU WHAT IS GOING WRONG WITH YOUR CAR.
To read the codes from any of the Celebrity line: First locate the ALDL, assembly line diagnostic link. It is on the bottom of the dash to the left of the steering column. Plug in either an OBD1 scanner or a code reader and follow the directions for the device. If you don't have either of the above use a suitable jumper and connect the first and second terminals, top row right hand side. Then…
What is the difference between the service vehicle soon and the service engine soon light a Pontiac aztek?
The Service Vehicle Soon indicator is usually a light bulb, headlight, or something to do with the vehicle. The Service Engine Soon indicator is anything that could be wrong with the Engine. Some computers can read codes for either, but some computers can only read codes for the Service Engine indicator.
Does 92 olds cutlass supreme hold history of codes will it tell why service engine light was on earlier?
unless the battery has been disconnected, a history of previous codes is retained in memory and you will be able to tell why your service engine light was on earlier. disconnecting the battery erases all codes - you would have to wait until service engine light comes on again to read any recent codes. good luck!

If a 1996 Toyota Corolla service indicator light is on after having the 120000 mile service does this mean there is a problem?

If the check engine light is blinking with the engine running , a spark plug misfire has been detected - get it scanned for trouble codes in order to diagnose and then repair the problem as soon as possible . If you don't , and continue driving with the check engine light blinking , you risk damaging your catalytic converter
The service engine soon light has little or nothing to do with fluid levels. It means there is a sensor indicating the engine is not running correctly. Take it down to AutoZone and they can read the codes for free. They'll at least be able to tell you what codes are in the computer and what they mean.
