Got a code 35 today...

I did a tune up on the truck with all MSD parts today and put in a new coil. The truck feels more powerful now, and I'm impressed in general. Anyway, soon after, the service engine soon light comes on and I used the paperclip method to pull up code 35. Ok, so the idle air control solenoid is having an error? I figure it could be caused by the exhaust (put on a straight pipe a couple weeks ago). But it doesn't make sense why it would come up after a tune up. Like I said, the truck runs better than ever, but that light is annoying. Any ideas?

Re: Got a code 35 today...

go back under the hood and make sure all connectins and sensors are secure. you mighthave just knocked a connection loose when working under the hood. if it still sets the code, trouble shoot the sensor for proper voltage.

4x4mike, you can use a paperclip to jump the data link connector in 88-95 trucks and run the codes. its a free, cheap, and ugly code key

Re: Got a code 35 today...

I'm gonna try playing with the connectors, thanks. Oddly enough the light hasn't come on once since I made this thread. Oh well, less to worry about. And actually, if you're a paperclip bending expert, you can make a pretty darn good looking diagnostic tool. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Got a code 35 today...

no, they are two different computer systems. 88-96 = OBDI and 96up = OBDII

Re: Got a code 35 today...

Paper clip methed rocks, these OBD II trucks arn't cool because it takes tons of money to work on it yourselve. I figure why buy a scanner when that one type of programmer can gain some power and read codes. But then it's still tons of money so I just let the light stay on then it goes off after a couple.
