The check engine light is telling you that the computer has information that you should read. You can find out what the engine fault code is by turning the ignition key to the run position (don't engage the starter, you are not trying to start the car) then back to the off position 3 times within 10 seconds. On the 3rd cycle, leave the key in the on position and look at the odometer. If it is digital, the accumulated miles will be replaced with various code numbers that flash by. Write these numbers down, as they are the fault codes that you are looking for. No need to purchase or rent a code reader. All Dodge products have the code reader built into the dash. If your odometer is not digital, then the check engine light will start to flash. Count the flashes and write down the corresponding number. Remember that each code requires three digits. Example: a code 340 would look like 3 flashes, pause, 4 flashes,pause then the light goes out. These number codes can now be compared to a code list of faults for you vehicle. Check around the internet for the engine fault codes for your vehicle, then you will find out what your on board computer is finding as the problem. Hope this helps Gummibear
sounds to me like a fuel pump if the engine continued to run but accelerator did not work then check for broken or disconnected accelerator cable both at the pedal and the throttle plate
I believe that vehicle has a timing belt, it may have let go.
you need to get it fixed Post a comment under the right catagory... This is the BMW 3-Series section...
No and if you think they are you got a serious problem
He thinks that you may think that he has a drinking problem.
You have a brake problem.
Although it has been declining for years, underage drinking and driving continue to be a problem.
Perhaps you have not engaged the clutch? The accelerator is designed to increase the RPMs. If you provide no resistance it will rev until it explodes.
The problem is that when you hit the accelerator, fuel is injected into the engine causing it to revolve at a higher speed. This in turn causes the trasmission to turn, causing the wheels to turn, thus the vhicle moves. If you dont want it to move, either turn the vehicle off or dont hit the accelerator. If this is an honest question, we need more info than that.
Drunk driving is a problem wherever alcohol is served and people drive.
Teen driving has always been a problem, there are a lot of irresponsible teenagers out there who do not need to be on the road.
