Tj Radiator and check engine light question.

I just flushed my radiator. I took off the hoses and blasted out the block at the same time. I let it run while I was doing it. Well, to make a long story short, I put it all back together and filled it back up with fluid and water and now the check engine light is stuck on. Any suggestions or how to shut this sucker off?

Thanks.

Re: Tj Radiator and check engine light question.

1. Check the error codes...
2 See what's triggering the code,
3. My guess...
4. An Error 22.
5. Disconnec the negative battery cable,
6. Let set 10 minutes...
7. See if the ECM resets.
8. Error codes to follow...

11 No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking. Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor. CKP sensor target windows have too much variation.
12 Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 Key-on cycles.
13 No difference recognized between the engine MAP reading and the barometric (atmosphere) pressure reading from start-up.
14 MAP sensor input above or below acceptable voltage. 5 volt output to MAP sensor open.
15 No vehicle speed sensor signal detected during road load conditions.
17 Engine did not reach operating temperature within acceptable limits. Engine does not reach 20º F. within 5 minutes with a vehicle speed signal.
21 Upstream oxygen sensor response slower than minimum required switching frequency. Upstream oxygen sensor heating element circuit malfunction. Downstream oxygen sensor heating element circuit malfunction. Downstream oxygen sensor input voltage maintained above the normal operating range. Oxygen sensor voltage too low, tested after cold start. (Upstream or Downstream) Left oxygen sensor input voltage maintained above the normal operating temperature.
22 Engine coolant temperature sensor above or below acceptable voltage.
23 Intake air temperature sensor input above or below acceptable voltage.
24 Throttle position sensor input above or below acceptable voltage. TPS signal does not correlate to MAP sensor.
25 A shorted or open condition detected in one or more of the idle air control motor circuits. Actual idle speed does not equal target idle speed.
27 Injector #3, and/or 4, and/or 5, and/or 6 output driver does not respond properly to the control signal.
31 An open or shorted condition detected in the A/C clutch relay circuit. Insufficient or excessive vapor flow detected during evaporative emission system operation.
33 An open or shorted condition detected in the duty cycle purge solenoid circuit.
34 An open or shorted condition detected in the Speed Control vacuum or vent solenoid circuits. Speed control switch input below the minimum acceptable voltage.
37 Relationship between engine speed and vehicle speed indicates no torque converter clutch engagement. An open or shorted condition detected in the torque converter part throttle unlock solenoid control circuit. Incorrect input state detected for the Park/Neutral switch. Auto only.
41 An open or shorted condition in the generator field control circuit.
42 An open or shorted condition detected in the auto shutdown relay circuit. An open condition detected in the ASD relay output circuit. An open or shorted condition detected in the fuel pump relay control circuit. An open circuit between PCM and fuel gauge sending unit. Circuit shorted to voltage between PCM and fuel gauge sending unit. No movement of fuel level sender detected.
43 Peak primary circuit current not achieved with maximum dwell time. Misfire detected in one or more cylinders 1 thru 6. (4 and 6 cyls.)
44 Battery temperature sensor in voltage above or below acceptable range.
46 Battery voltage sense input above target charging voltage during engine operation.
47 Battery voltage sense input below target charging during engine operation. Also, no significant change detected in battery voltage during active test of generator output circuit.
51 A lean air/fuel mixture has been indicated by an abnormally rich correction factor.
52 A rich air/fuel mixture has been indicated by an abnormally rich correction factor.
53 PCM Internal fault condition detected.
54 No camshaft signal detected during engine cranking.
55 Completion of fault code display on Check Engine lamp.
63 Unsuccessful attempt to write to an EEPROM location by the PCM.
64 Catalyst efficiency below required level. (Same as code 72)
65 Power steering high pressure seen at high speed. (2.5L only)
72 Catalyst efficiency below required level. (Same as code 64)
77 Malfunction detected with poser feed to speed control servo solenoids.

Re: Tj Radiator and check engine light question.

Thats a great reply and thanks LEVE but now for a stupid question. How do you check the code.


#################
turn the key all theway on and off three times real quick ending in the on position. Your check engine light will flash your codes and your digitial odometer should show the code.
#################

is that the correct way?

Re: Tj Radiator and check engine light question.

1. Turn the ignition key <ul type="square">[*]ON THREE TIMES to RUN in succession[*]ON : OFF : ON : OFF : ON[*]Complete the cycle within FIVE seconds.[/list]2. Count the number of times the check engine lamp on the dash flashes.
3. The number of flashes represents the error code.
4. There should be pause between the flashes
5. Representing different digits of the code.
6. A longer pause separate trouble codes.
7. When finishted Code 55,
8. Will be the last code to be displayed.

Re: Tj Radiator and check engine light question.

Hmmmm, IM not sure what this is supposed to mean, but this is the error code im getting.

12 Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 Key-on cycles.

[/ QUOTE ]1. The battery was disconnected.
2. This code should reset after 50 cycles,
3. Of the igniting switch turning back on.

Re: Tj Radiator and check engine light question.



Sorry about this.
The key switch thing only works up through '97. Correct?
Is there a way to pull codes from my '99 without a reader?
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

3. You may want to try a local Auto Parts Store...
4. Some of them scan your for free.
5. Free is good.
6. You may want to check out THIS site...
7. It's a fun product.

Re: Tj Radiator and check engine light question.

Thanks Larry.
I knew you'd have my answer, and figured I'd get a useful link from you as well. I was talking to a buddy about a laptop interface system just a few days ago, and he sounded really interested in buying one. This might not even cost me one cent!!!
Sorry for the hi-jacking.
Thanks again for the help.

Re: Tj Radiator and check engine light question.

hey man, the easiest way to get rid of an annoying light is to remove the little screw on the dash, to the left and below the steering wheel, then proceed to remove the pieces of the dask untill you can pull the gauges out of the dash completely, then look in the back of it, and remove the light bulb, finally replace all pieces

hope it helps, thats how i got rid of the stupid
